Rose Gold is who you can call a triple threat. Overcoming adversity is what she does best and her mind is set on success. Hailing from Pine Bluff, Arkansas, music has always been a passion for this southern beauty. As a first generation Haitian American, life was anything but easy while growing up in Pine Bluff. Watching her parents struggle to establish themselves in the southern community and dealing with continuous and relentless bullying from her peers, Rose Gold turned to music as an escape and outlet for her rage. Influenced by Tupac and Lil Boosie, Rose Gold began writing original music at the age of 14 to express her anguish, using Cool Edit Pro to record her vocals through a computer mic. Later that year, she founded the R&B girl group, (3 Pretty Misses) which originally comprised of herself, a childhood friend, and a fellow church member. Initially, suffered a slow start due to the constant changing of group members, but it wasn’t until 2005 when became official. Having limited resources, the group would go door to door through different neighborhoods singing for people in order to collect donations to form a press kit and pay for studio time. Eventually, the group began gaining local recognition when they released their song “I Like” on Myspace in 2006. After reaching out to various industry heavy-weights, including Sickamore and other major A&Rs, caught a break when Xavier Lewis of So So Def decided to take the group under his wings. Their hunger is what dared them to leave Pine Bluff and relocate to Atlanta on their own straight out of high school in order to join the imprint label Stoopid Fly Entertainment, founded by Lewis in 2007. However, they soon came to terms with the struggles they faced in Atlanta and disbanded due to creative differences.
Rose Gold, then 18 years old, was faced with a critical decision: Go hard or go home? She rose to the occasion and made a daring move to New York City. Despite having to sleep in her car a few nights and her funds slowly dwindling, that wasn’t enough to deter her. After meeting an industry professional at a gas station by chance, Rose Gold was able to attend a recording session at Grindhouse Studios. That same night, she followed an engineer into Legacy Studios where she met Swizz Beatz and his production team, The Individualz. Rose Gold used this opportunity to show off her writing skills. Impressed, The Individualz recruited her as a songwriter in late 2007. By early 2008, Rose Gold began making beats after becoming intrigued with the process while watching The Individualz work. Rose Gold continued writing music and making beats until 2009 when she decided to take a hiatus from music to focus on completing a degree in Biochemistry. Now at 24, with two degrees under her belt, this producer, singer and songwriter is hungrier than ever. By exploiting this advantage, Rose Gold is eager to create a lane for herself and show the world what she’s made of.
