Today we’d like to introduce you to Signed, Rosie.
Hi Signed, Rosie, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
My mother put me in community theatre when I was just five years old. Ever since then, I’ve had this passion for performing, music, and changing people’s lives through it. Helping others has always been my goal in anything I set out to do. At twenty-two, I decided to make an EP in Connecticut, and during that process I decided I wanted to do music for real. Now twenty-five, I live in Los Angeles where I have a job that I absolutely adore where I get to simultaneously work on my own music and also video editing and producing, which is what I went to school for.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Oh, wow. Definitely has not been a smooth road. But most things that are worth it are not easy. I knew going into this that I was choosing one of the most difficult careers to be successful in. I’ve dealt with betrayal of loyalty, selfishness, you name it. I make music because I love it, but for some people that is just not the case. I am grateful, though. Everything is a lesson. I have so much support from my family and my team. I had to go through the tough shit to get to where I am now.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am an indie-pop artist. I play guitar and am learning piano as well. I just love writing poetry and music and lyrics- it’s something I’ve grown to be quite good at. When you look at your own work from years ago and work from recently and can really see the growth, it is very humbling and rewarding. It is something I’ve experienced with a lot of elements of my music career. I have an incredible team that includes engineers, producers, videographers, photographers, you name it. I love what I do and feel extremely blessed every day that I have all of these people in my corner. We just released a music video for one of my most popular songs, “bedroom”. I would say I’m most proud of myself for sticking with it when there were so many times I wanted to give up. It just seemed like the only option. But I always go back to the reason I started- my love for the music. I think I’m different from other artists because I’m just super honest in my life and in my music. In the past two years specifically, I’ve really grown into who I am and I want to share that and let others know that it’s okay to show yourself to the world.
How do you define success?
Success is happiness. Freedom. Loving yourself and what you’ve built.
