Event Details

Baby Rose makes healing music for the aimless and heartbroken. The Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and producer’s uniquely rich voice naturally lends itself to her powerful, smoke-filled ballads lamenting lost loves and broken futures. “I make music to help myself get through things,” she says. The piercing honesty and vulnerability she brings to her lyrics in turn helps others process their feelings and find a place of healing. For Rose, it’s a journey that’s still ongoing. “If I’m going to leave anything behind, it’s going to be getting people back to themselves,” she says. “As I get back to myself, it’s a constant reset: Remember who you are, remember who you want to be.”

You can hear the impact of this approach in Baby Rose’s upcoming second album, Through and Through. Take the hypnotic “Fight Club.” Over the track’s simmering bassline and crashing cymbals, she declares, “I don’t need no one else to show me the way.” She describes the song as a “breaking of the shell. It encourages me to just go for it and not care about what anyone else thinks.” Therein lies Baby Rose’s strength: a determination to live, love, and create on her own terms. “I’m not just a singer with a unique voice,” she says. “I’m somebody that has something to say.”

With a powerful falsetto and a knack for tender, soulful storytelling, Q Marsden is well on his way to capturing the hearts and minds of a generation.

Q was five years old when he started recording music. Raised by musician parents, the 22-year- old singer-songwriter from Pembroke Pines, Florida fondly remembers laying his first track down in studios his father brought him to in Jamaica. Despite his early foundations in music, Q was never taught how to play the piano, guitar, and drums that grace his stirring, melodic songs. “I would listen to it and try to play it piece by piece,” Q explains about teaching himself to play the keys by ear and using classic Mozart as a guide. Soon enough he was programming beats into his mother’s Triton keyboard. When he heard Drake’s 2013 album Nothing Was The Same, Q was inspired to make production his focus, and even sold a guitar he had bought in order to get the computer equipment he needed to strengthen his sound.

“My music now has no resemblance to Forest Green or even Thoughts,” Q says about the evolution of his sound in the more recent critically acclaimed self-produced & written project The Shave Experiment. He’s in a different place now, and so naturally, the music is different. As he gears up to release even more music, Q wants to focus on his message: “Evolve, change and give hope, nothing more and nothing less,” he says.
