Misty Rosas is a creative, a multifaceted artist who doesn’t believe in limitations. She has defined all odds and is truly living her dream. If you’re wondering who this wanderlust and nomadic hustler is, then she’s a singer/songwriter/recording artist/dancer/actress/an expert costume performer/a motion capture artist/a stuntwoman and a Bikram Yoga teacher (a Jack of all trades right)? Misty released her mystic single titled “Paper House”. The song begins with an immediate nonexclusive and encyclopedic sound that’s going to have you stunned by the sensation she gives! Misty Rosas vocal tone is so classic and legendary it really stands out on the backtrack of the music. It’s the raspy and full toned warmth to her voice. You can tell she spent a lot of time honing in on her skills and enhancing her vocal ability due to how solid the foundation of her voice is. "Paper House" is an intricate record with a detailed hook that thrives off of the dramatics and augmentation in the instrumental, alongside Misty’s transitioning vocal registers from low to high. In my opinion, "Paper House" represents Misty Rosas vocal style highly well. It has a way of adding an extra emphasis on the music.

Hi Misty! Great to chat with you! Can you tell us a bit more about you?
Hello! Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity! I am very excited and honored to be interviewed by Buzz Music L.A.! I am a multifaceted entertainer. I'm a music artist/singer-songwriter, and I am also an actor, dancer, suit performer, motion capture artist, stunt woman, and Bikram Yoga teacher, as well as a practicing yogi. In a nutshell, I am a Creative.
Paper House seems to have a unique approach on songwriting. How would you lyrically summarize the meaning behind the song?
Paper House is metaphorical. It is about the shame we carry on the inside, all the while trying so desperately to make the outside appear to be strong, pretty and perfect. It is about the illusion. If you don't learn how to take care of yourself and nurture your own heart and soul from the inside out, it won't matter how pretty or perfect you look on the outside, your inside will remain hollow. Your perception of yourself will be warped, and many poor choices will be made causing a lot of heartbreak and disillusionment. My lyric, "her hands tied to beautiful lies", encapsulates the message of the song. I know it's cliche, but I do believe that true beauty is born from the inside out! For me, the place I feel most peaceful and most comfortable/beautiful in my own skin is just after practicing yoga! My heart is wide open! No makeup! My hair in a sweaty clump on top of my head! I'm a Hot Mess ...in a good way! Actually, the yoga room is where most of my songs are born!
If you could describe your music style in 3 adjectives what would it be and why?
My music style is lyrically empowering, driving, and inspiring. The melodies I create are inspired by the words and the message I am trying to convey in a song. Each one unique to itself. My style is an eclectic mix of melodic ballads and uptempo pop songs. I write from my own life experience, my struggles, and my heartbreak. I have shared about all my personal demons in my songwriting, and my music videos. Shame is a powerful thing! It can rob you of your joy, and your ability to live the life of your dreams. It has taken me a very long time, and a lot of work to be here now, living the life of my dreams! For me, I share my life's story because I want to connect with people that may be struggling with similar challenges! I want people to feel like their struggles are valid, and I want them to know that they are not alone! And if this severely hearing impaired, little person can do it, SO CAN YOU! THERE ARE NO LIMITS!
Who are a few of your musical influences that have helped shape your career in music?
My musical influences, oh there are so many! Here are the most prominent in my life: Air Supply, Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, Alanis Morissette, Tina Turner, Adele, The Bee Gees, Etta James, Patsy Cline, Faith Hill, Shania Twain, Madonna, Prince, Cheap Trick, The Foo Fighters, Pink, Johnny Mathis, etc., etc., etc..
What’s next for you through 2019?
What's next for me in 2019? As a singer-songwriter/actor, my ultimate goal is to place Paper House in a movie as a theme song! It is such a profoundly powerful moment to experience when an actor is going through a life-changing moment in a scene, and that incredible moment is accompanied by the swell of the music and the lyrics of a powerful, impactful song! To be a part of such a creation, that would be my ultimate dream come true as an artist!
I am also working on my next EP. I'm currently writing new songs on my own, as well as with my music producing partners Paul Bushnell and Paul Graham. I will be performing more live shows this summer with my bandmates and dancers, and singing onstage as often as I can as a guest artist with different bands throughout L.A. and Orange County. My Facebook music page, @MistyRosasMusic, is the best place to get up to date information about my gigs, new songs, and merch.!
I've had the rare privilege and pleasure to experience the emotional effect that Paper House has had on my female friends. After listening to the song most of them start crying and talking all at the same time because they are so overwhelmed by the intense feelings the song brings up for them! To experience that release with them means the world to me! It is a special moment that brings tears to my eyes too! As an artist, the creative and emotional connection to others is everything!
I wish you the courage to really go after your BIG dreams! Patience with your heart because the process can be terrifying at first! (It's okay to take it slow!) Persistence and perseverance to take the long journey, make lots of mistakes, but keep going! And always lead with love and kindness, because you just don't know what kind of battle a person is going through at any given moment!
