is a 24 year old singer/songwriter that first decided to pursue
a career as a professional singer at age 9 while living in Nairobi,
Kenya. "I always wanted to sing," Rose said. "I
remember walking into the kitchen and telling my mom that when
I grow up I want to be a singer! I also grew up listening to
my parents who both played guitar and sang me songs by some of
the greats like Peter Paul and Mary, John Denver, and Simon and
Garfunkel," said Rose, "their love for music definitely
impacted and inspired me."
Loni Rose began composing original songs when she was sixteen.
Her collection currently numbers over 70 songs. While her earliest
compositions were crafted with piano, her primary writing instrument
is now the guitar. Her major songwriting influences range from
Shawn Colvin and Rickie Lee Jones to Crowded House, The Chieftains,
and David Gray.
