Nana M. Rose
touching pop ballads and light, bittersweet indie-folk
Rotterdam-based singer-songwriter Nana M. Rose writes beautiful, intimate piano ballads and light-hearted indie folk pop, carried by her incredible, larger-than-life voice, described by Fortitude Magazine as “powerful, moving and unforgettable”. Her songs are reminiscent of Adele’s stirring style and have a dreamy, cinematic flair evocative of Lana del Rey. In 2019 and 2020, Nana toured the UK, New York and The Netherlands. Nana’s first single ‘Love Me Like I Love You’ (2020), a co-write with London-based producer Louis Souyave (‘Be A Lady’, Maddox Jones) was nominated for this year’s Rotterdam ‘Song of the Year’ award. Her follow-up ‘November’, featuring ‘the best vocal performance of 2020’ (Unheard Gems), was championed by radio presenter Charlie Ashcroft (Amazing Radio, UK). Nana has recently performed her first three releases, including Sweet Honey, live on leading Dutch radio flagships 3fm (Kevin’s ‘Parels van de Nacht’) and Radio 2 (‘Het Muziekcafé) and also multiple live streaming platforms, incl. Sofar Sounds’ ‘Listening Room’ and Dansende Beren. It has just been announced that Nana has been selected for this year’s ‘Popronde’, a prestigious showcase festival with various shows all across the Netherlands between September and November this year. June 18th Nana M. Rose released her long-anticipated debut EP ‘Morning Drops & Lemon Seeds’, a collection of her three previously-released singles and two brand new tracks that have never been shared before. The Rotterdam-based singer-songwriter is presenting a truly riveting body of work that showcases her incredible talent as both a songwriter and vocal performer in all its facets and glory, and skillfully bridges the gap between dreamy indie folk and cinematic pop ballads.
