I'm absolutely thrilled to have just released the title track for my upcoming debut EP 'Lullaby' which resembles the soft, acoustic tones of Daniel Ceasar's "Best Part' ft. H.E.R as well as the acoustic version of "On My Mind" by Jorja Smith & Preditah.
Dedicated to my sister and best friend, Lullaby is written for any woman who has endured more than they should have.
"Once in a blue moon you stumble across an artist who completely takes you off guard. An artist who disarms your ears, your usual listening parameters are thrown to the wind and you find yourself stunned at the level of resonation you feel with this new found stranger and their art.
This such artist is Rosie Alexandra, with her soft, wispy, yet quietly powerful vocals that dance on the veils of an utterly gorgeous track, ‘Lullaby’ is the first offering of 2022 from the young artist and one that is sure to comfort the very depths of your soul. With lyrical content that is delivered with such care, kindness and authenticity, ‘Lullaby’ is a rarity, lovingly speaking to countless women who have found themselves in similar situations and doing so with the utmost respect and understanding."

"The lyrics and that almost breaking voice also feel so real and honest, because that’s what they are – they’re reflections on Rosie Alexandra’s experiences as a woman."

I'm Rosie Alexandra, a Brightonian at heart grounded in Soul, RnB and Gospel roots. I’m here to use my voice to bring about change by pouring my heart into every soul-full melody. My sound is Pop-Soul and goes back to ‘pop’ in its most natural form, drawing on sentimental ballad style and rich harmony from jazz, gospel and soul. My lifelong inspos are Yebba, Bill Withers, Adele, Stevie Wonder and Jorja Smith so harnessing power and rawness in both lyrics and tone is second nature to me. The influence I draw from the warm textures of Bill Withers and the raw honesty of Jorja Smith creates a beautiful, bold tenderness. My music encapsulates my strong mind with my passionately loving heart and each song is a fragment of my journey, that echoes the reflections of my soul.
This year I was touched by the words of The Other Side reviews in response to the release of my debut feature track ‘Nowhere’: “There is a defiant edge to her vocals before you are hit with soulful tones when the music drops.” My music reveals something of all I have been through in my life so far, who it has made me today, and how it has made me see the world. When I began my songwriting journey I made the decision that my creativity would always come from a place of honesty, realness and authenticity and for many years I have loved the work of Yebba, who too has seen just how tough life can be. Her songs have sat with me, uplifted, encouraged and soothed me. Like her, I am distinctive in a tender and rich vocal sound as well as personal and vulnerable in nature. I am inspired to breathe lyrics that capture the feeling, connect authentically and hit deeply which is what I will be remembered for. I’m so excited to emerge from this challenging year stronger than ever to release my debut EP ‘Lullaby’, bringing a message of life and hope.
