Amongst the women legends whose voices have stitched together the fine quilt of musicianship and artistry—Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Whitney Houston, and alike—24-year-old Baby Rose is channeling their energy and embroidering herself into the same fine cloth that was created before her. Just in case you needed some convincing, the Washington D.C. resident just shared her holiday project To: You, and it definitely has the makings of a new classic to stream when you need to gather a little wintertime cheer.
To: You is a soul-infused early holiday present neatly wrapped in R&B elegance. “Christmas Cookies (Part 1)” sprinkles a little adoration into a nice piping cup of holiday cocoa and sets the smooth jazz tone for the remainder of the project. This holiday bundle is enamored with Baby Rose’s captivating vocals and adlibs, luscious instrumentations, and wintertime emotions that compose a truly poetic piece. Drawing from her lineage of music lovers and artists, Baby Rose is creating her own empire backed by soulful voice transplanted from another era.
Alongside the release of To: You, Baby Rose announced her 2020 US tour beginning, which will be kicking off February 10 in San Antonio, Texas. Tickets are on sale now, so make sure not to miss out on the performance of a lifetime.
