CHEY ROSE NUMBER ONE
Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
Right now I'm in Nashville, TN! I'm a senior at Belmont University here, studying songwriting / music business and love it. I'm originally from a suburb of Columbus, OH -- lots of corn fields and wide open spaces there! I miss it, but definitely love city living! Who has been your greatest influence?
I would say the band LANY is my all time biggest influence. They were the first ones to inspire me back in high school to pursue pop music, because after listening to their first album I remember being like, WOW -- I HAVE to start making music like THIS. I was hooked on their synthy-chill-pop sound and that's really been a huge factor in me finding my unique sound as an artist!
What is your latest and greatest?
My "latest and greatest" is definitely my newest song child (lol), Number One. I am so so proud of this song. It came out of such a brutally honest, vulnerable place in my heart, and from the moment I recorded the first little voice memo blurb, I knew it was something special just from the way it resonated with my soul. It highlights the realization that you're "no one's number one" and goes on to highlight that inner struggle of loneliness and the craving to be really known and chosen by someone. Writing it was like therapy for me and I knew I had to share it because I think its message is powerful. My hope is that other people will hear this song and realize they're not so alone after all, because every single person in the world has experienced those same feelings at some point.
What are you most looking forward to in 2021? I have been fervently writing like crazy all of Summer and Fall 2020, so honestly I'm most excited about releasing my next era of music. I have the overall album concept, brand and songs all ready (too many to choose from, to be honest!) -- and writing this upcoming project has helped me grow so much as a person, so I cannot WAIT to share it! website www.cheyrosetunes.com I would love to connect with you!
