“I knew I wanted to write a song about my vision of Building Bridges with Mark Shine. He is an incredible singer and songwriter. We met through MySpace and started to work together on recordings and in live shows immediately. I shared my vision with him and he came up with this beautiful hook, which was the beginning of this song.”
The song brilliantly fuses her formidable classical music background with America’s sizzling Rock, Soul and R&B sounds. Her ingenious pop arrangement is peppered with an accessible lyrical hook that appeals to people all over the world. Building Bridges includes the best musicians on the NYC scene and features Mark Shine’s vocals layered over Queen Rose’s lush string arrangements, bringing to life her music and vision.
Queen Rose is manifesting her vision in her not-for-profit organization Building Bridges in the works. Its mission is to create intercultural communication to cause peace, bringing about a shift from negative to empowering messages.
As a child in Austria, Europe’s music capital, Queen Rose played any instrument she could get her hands on. Violin became her primary instrument and by age 13 she performed professionally. Her student years are filled with scholarships, awards and achievements that mark her growth, as she became an accomplished Classical & Jazz violinist.
Her evolution as a consummate violinist led her to New York City. “It was love at first sight” Queen Rose said about visiting the Big Apple for the first time. The prestigious Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship “to further international understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries and geographical areas” made it possible for her. She came to study at the renowned New School Jazz Program.
In 2011 Queen Rose will release her first R&B/Hip Hop album with world music influences featuring some of New York City’s hottest independent and Grammy Award winning singers & rappers to share her many talents as a violinist, songwriter and producer.
A resourceful social entrepreneur and proven leader, Queen Rose is indeed one to watch.
