Growing up on the Monongahela River in southwestern Pennsylvania, Victoria Rose’s love affair with country music began at an early age while cruising the waters on her family boat.
Blending traditional and contemporary country music, she garnered an appreciation for legendary icons such as Dolly Parton and Hank Williams Jr., along with her childhood favorites Carrie Underwood and Little Big Town.
While Victoria Rose is most certainly characterized by her songwriting ability, sassy lyrics, and crisp twangy vocals, what lies beneath is the tenacity and determination that will put her on the path to success. She expertly balances young-hearted romanticism with sophistication to offer a relatable quality that country music fans alike, can latch onto.
Bringing ourselves to Victoria Rose’s most recent body of work, we’re thrilled to dive into her five-track self-titled EP.

This power Pop ballad takes full control of your cognizant thoughts as you immediately get pulled into her prevailing timbres which showcase intricate lyrics shaped around a narrative of mixed signals in a relationship.
Belting out this passion-fueled anthem in a way that sends chills down our spine, we deeply feel the themes that Victoria Rose places in front of her audience.

Projecting her authentic reality to listeners far and wide, Victoria Rose makes it easy to relate to her own expressions when she tugs at the relevance that floats within the world as we know it. Encouraging us to learn every heartfelt lyrical motif, the fierce persona of Victoria Rose is a force to be reckoned with.
We love the way that you convey “Confused,” from a lived experience, and turn it into an anthem for all to feast upon. With the subject matter hitting so close to home for you, did you find it fairly easy, or more difficult to write this track? I actually found it fairly easy since it was written from a personal experience. Since the story is close to home, the song basically wrote itself and I finished it in about 30 minutes. Once I presented it to my co-writers and producer, Caroline and Mike Walker, they immediately fell in love with it and we barely changed anything from the original song I wrote. How does “Confused,” tie into the concept of your EP? What inspired the overall themes of this project? The overall theme of the EP is the process of navigating aromatic relationships as a young person. “Confused” ties into that concept as the experience of being in a relationship without clear boundaries and wondering how the other person feels about you. How long did it take you to create this collection of songs? Could you please share a glimpse of the creative process with us? It took a couple of months to completely finish all of the songs. Every song was a different process. Some songs didn’t take long to write, yet the recording and producing process was longer and vice versa. With the writing process, some songs I came to my team with, some they came to me with, and some we all wrote together. Even if I originally wrote a song or they came to me with a song, we all had a part in writing it. We always go back-and-forth tweaking the lyrics and melody until we feel like the song is polished. What are you hoping is the main message that is sent out to your listeners from this release? The message I hope my listeners take away from my new songs is that it’s normal for relationships to be a roller coaster of emotions. Young people experiencing love for the first time can relate to the EP, while older listeners can reminisce about what it was like exploring uncharted territory with another person for the first time. What's next for you? After the EP, my team and I are releasing a summer song titled, “Another Summer Night,” along with a music video very soon! Also, I have many performances coming up so stay tuned for that.
