For anyone that has ever been told that your dreams are ‘too big’, Blake Rose wants you to know that no dream is too big. After witnessing a friend give up his dreams of becoming a musician due to the lack of support from his family, Blake Rose was inspired to write an anthem that served as “a middle finger to anyone who doesn’t want you to live your dream” he says. His newest release, “Rest Of Us”, out today, echoes the motivating message to not let anyone dictate your life.
“Rest Of Us” serves as the follow up single to his wildly popular song “Gone” which continues to gain momentum, with over 7 million streams to date! In a showcase of his Buckley-esque vocals, luscious electric-guitar-driven melodies, and knack for writing insanely infectious alternative pop songs, Blake recently released the live rendition of “Gone”. “I try to give listeners an experience,” he reveals.“I take a lot of time with every element to make sure I’m creating a world people can immerse themselves into. Whether the narrative is precise or ambiguous I try to attain a certain level of depth with each song that I hope people can latch onto and let it be as much a part of their own story as it is mine.”
In just over a year, Australian native Blake Rose, has gone from busking in the streets of Perth to becoming one of the most exciting rising musicians to emerge in 2020. From his debut single, “Hotel Room” to his incredibly successful releases of “Lost” and “Gone” and now with his newest release of “Rest Of Us”, Blake Rose is paving his own path while becoming a global force in the music industry.
