Frequent collaborator with the SA-RA Creative Partners and Georgia Anne Muldrow, Ms. Rose is already building quite the reputation for her energetic solo stage show and has just released “The Barber’s Daughter” earlier this year. I recently had a chance to sit down and ask about her favorite artists, working with new media at the eWorld Electronic Music Awards where she performed alongside SA-RA.
