Cambridgeshire singer/songwriter Rosalie-Rae is set to release new music, written during lockdown. Here’s what Rosalie-Rae, real name Jessica Goode, has to say about her music…
Where Rosalie-Rae began
I’ve had an interest in music and singing for as long as I can remember. I grew up on all sorts of music, ranging from Pink Floyd and The Beatles to musicals and pop. On my 10th birthday my parents gifted my first singing lessons, which allowed me to progress further and begin my vocal exams. At age 14 I joined an amateur theatre group and took a shine to singing songs from musicals. I progressed this with my second vocal coach. With her help, I also achieved a distinction in my grade 5 singing exam. I hope to continue with singing lessons in the near future.
I studied music as a GCSE and then at Cambridge Regional College, where I continued with music performance. There I wrote my first two EPs under the name Jessica G: “Days Like These Will Come And Go” and “My Melodic Notebook”.
I met my boyfriend at college, and he has worked with me on numerous tracks, including “April Showers Brings May Flowers” which I wrote during the pandemic under my new artist name Rosalie-Rae. Like many people, we chose to make a positive out of the hard times in lockdown by creating music. This track had its release on the 12th April 2020 in aid of the charities Age UK and Mind. It raised £220 for those good causes. We were also lucky enough to be featured on Cambridge 105 and BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.
Shortly after the release, I wrote my first album in a matter of months during lockdown. “Waves Of Royal Blue” was based on my love of music growing up, and how that’s taken me into adult life. It also speaks of many elements of life, including nights out with friends and love. The album had its release on the 21st September 2020.
I’ve also been working on many other tracks, as yet unreleased. My latest track is out on 27th September: “All I wanna Do Is Sing In The Rain”. It’s different to my previously song, but holds a lot of meaning for me. I hope everyone who listens can find their own unique meaning for the song.
