Electronic press kit
My art is a direct reflection of life experiences and the environment in which I reside. From an early age, writing has been very influential. Initially, I was drawn to the words and structure of songs. Over time, it became a passion to record and produce as well. Music is something I have dedicated my life to for better or worse. Whatever I am dealt is put straight into creation. Performing allows me the opportunity to connect with an audience while sharing a piece of myself. Please take a look at my press kit and see what I have accomplished during my 20 year career. Thank you for your interest in Lefty Rose and I look forward to possibly working with you in the future.
