“Music has always been my language.” Rosie Holloway left school at 15 and began sweeping up hair in salons until she was old enough to work in bars. And it wasn’t long before she was the headline act in pubs and bars across London. She has already played at Glastonbury - despite no previous releases - an experience she says she will never forget, held down a residency at Ronnie Scott’s and has successfully held her own feminist music nights in Hoxton, aptly named Wild Women Do.
Following in the long-line of sultry but vulnerable London soulstresses, Rosie’s lyrics are unapologetically emotional and empowering. Her songs range from powerful pieces of social commentary to cathartic, in-your-face anthems. She's completely backed by a grassroots following.
Growing up on London’s Mozart Estate, she has also been classically trained in singing, guitar, piano and violin since the age of 5 and her late father used to write with the likes of Labi Siffre. When she’s not out dancing somewhere to UKG, Rosie can be found displaying her captivating blend of pop, soul and indie in venues across the UK, her signature leopard print madcat guitar in tow. As she puts it in her debut single, she’s Rolling with the Punches.
