#CFF2022 Artists' Spotlight: Lily Rose
Touting an identifiable sound described as contemporary, vulnerable, and raw, Lily Rose is breaking new ground in the Nashville music scene with her ear-catching artistry that’s been tapped as “a promising new talent” by Billboard. Rose grew up in Atlanta as a self-taught drummer and guitarist but it wasn’t until high school that she discovered her voice. As an athlete and distinguished singer, Rose had to decide which avenue to pursue. Bar sets and cover shows in her college town of Athens, GA led to Headlining and sold out shows across Athens, Atlanta, Nashville, and NYC, prompting her to make the move to Nashville in 2017. Her musical influences range from Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Bruce Springsteen to Katy Perry reflecting her innate ability to adopt a “futuristic” 21st century country sound. She currently resides in Nashville where she continues to write and record new music with a focus on melody and hook driven songwriting style, which has proven to resonate among country, pop and rock alike.
After blazing onto the Country scene with her Dec. 2020 release of “Villain,” Rose quickly grabbed the attention of Big Loud Records / Back Blocks Music and Republic Records and signed a joint-venture record deal in Jan. 2021. In the months following, Rose released four more songs, which earned her critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Billboard, People, MusicRow, and CMT with more than 72M global artist streams to date. On Oct. 1, Rose released a seven-song new project, STRONGER THAN I AM, as she continues to introduce herself to new fans through her “confident ease blending musical styles”(Rolling Stone) and “dusky, soulful voice” (CMT). Rose will also join Chris Lane’s Fill Them Boots Tour early 2022.
