Canadian Singer-Songwriter Recording Artist, Rose Ranger originally hails from Vancouver's North Shore. She was raised in an eclectic, artsy family environment with the ocean and mountains a stone's throw away that provided a naturally vibrant space to foster her creativity. She studied theatre at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and Capilano University while teaching herself how to sing, play guitar, write songs, and later enrolled in the Interdisciplinary Studies degree program at The University of British Columbia where she majored in creative writing. After spending a year in the recording studio writing and recording her debut album, Rose signed a record deal with Pacific/Warner Music.
“I was always musical, I didn’t really follow any one type, I absorbed it all. I grew up dancing as a kid: ballet, tap and jazz. And with dancing there is a different style of music for each dance form. With ballet it was classical, tap was mostly Broadway show tunes and jazz dancing had the pop and rock. So, I’ve been influenced by a lot of different styles of music and creative art forms.”
Rose works as an actor in film and television as well with a recent role on Supernatural's 300th episode. Her original songs have been featured in The Young and the Restless, Beautiful People, Strong Medicine, Undressed, Joan of Arcadia, Dawson's Creek, Party of Five, Hallmark's The Story of Us, Lifetime's Christmas Angel, Whistler Film Festival, CBC Docs, and feature films including, The Bandit Hound and Deluxe Combo Platter.
Now with five albums and an array of singles, the multi-talented artist performs both solo and with her band. She has written and recorded with some of Canada's top music producers and has toured parts of Canada, America, Germany, Australia, South Africa including performing as a guest musician on Disney's Caribbean cruises.
