Hamburg born, London based singer Anin Rose crafts empowering pop songs with a gospel twist.
Having worked extensively conducting the London International Gospel Choir, her compositions are heavily shaped by the choral sound.
Having drawn early musical influence from the iconic Alicia Keys, with more recent influence from Emeli Sandé, Anin Rose’s heavily piano-based compositions have been moulded into an irresistible EP scheduled for release in May 2019.
Lead single ‘No Apologies’ is a gospel-influenced pop song written by Anin Rose and Anders Hojer.
Releasing on International Women’s day, it’s an empowering anthem about finding strength in vulnerability and not being apologetic about it.
The emotional magnitude of ‘No Apologies’ is supported by a chorus of female background singers, a key theme throughout her work.
Not just the pretty front of an album cover, women are being credited more and more as songwriters, producers or managers in mainstream music.
We win double the number of Grammys and remove our high heels on the red carpet. It has never been so exciting to be a woman and be surrounded by women changing the industry and striving for equality for everyone.
As a conductor of the London International Gospel Choir, Anin Rose has performed her songs with 80 choral singers, stripping the sound back for a sensational 10 all-female singer performance at her last headline show at St Giles in the Fields in 2018.
Having made her choral debut at the age of 19, her love of harmonies marries effortlessly with her passion for pop music as is evident in her recent live shows and live recordings.
Having worked recently with Freya Ridings and Jamie Grey, alongside leading performances at the o2 Shepherds Bush, The Southbank Centre and Union Chapel, the intimacy of thought within Anin Rose’s lyrics effortlessly moves audiences of all sizes.
‘No Apologies’ might be influenced by the female songwriters who shaped her early listening experiences, but Anin Rose is an artist who simply can’t be pigeonholed.
“I’ve been called too tall, too loud and too extrovert. When we wrote ‘No Apologies’ it was like turning those judgements into my actual power and celebrating the uniqueness of each one of us”
