Her First Pop Hit Comes from Holding Fast to Her Girlhood Dream
After leaving college to continue pursuing her girlhood dream, Sydney Rose’s debut pop single, “Breaking Rules,” (www.sydneyrosemusic.com), hit No. 15 on the national radio Top 40 chart in October.
The song is on her first album, “Rise.”
“I’ve been in love with music all my life,” says Rose, 20. “I’ve learned it’s an important part of who I am and you can’t ignore that, no matter what your age.”
Rose grew up honing her singing skills, then learning guitar (“My first chord was D”) and studying dance. She overcame any lingering shyness about performing before audiences by joining two other girls in a pop/dance group called Rosemadayne.
When it was time to attend college, she temporarily put her dream on hold to focus on studies and “the experience.” It wasn’t long, however, before she realized it was the wrong choice.
“I knew I had to nurture that passion that is so a part of me.”
That’s when she wrote “Rise,” an up-tempo celebration of life. It’s getting airplay on radio stations across the country, a development that never ceases to amaze and delight the rising star.
“Listening to myself on the planet 96.7 right at this moment!!!” she posted recently on Twitter (@itssydneyrose). “This is surreal!!!! #bestdayeverever.”
“My older kids have heard about this album coming out. In hearing it, I have been really happy that they have found an album with a fun beat, exciting rhythms, diverse songs, but isn't one I am worried about them listening to,” writes Amazon reviewer Grace. “It's clean and fun. I am impressed with the talent of this new artist, who I understand wrote all of the songs herself!”
“It's groovy! She is very talented and makes me want to dance! … (I) can't wait for more music from her!” writes iTunes reviewer David Corder, Jr.
