Born in Camberley, Surrey, England, Rose’s musical origins began with her playing drums in her school orchestra, her songwriting started writing tunes on her family home’s piano, she later bought a guitar from a shop she passed on the way to school, taught herself and began writing material at around the age of sixteen. Rose never played her material for anyone until she left home after completing her A-levels. At eighteen, she moved to London; but instead of taking her place at University College London to study geography, she began experimenting and performing with other musicians. It was at this time when she met Jack Steadman, the frontman of Bombay Bicycle Club. After becoming friends Steadman asked if she would like to perform vocals on a song he had written and was recording. The acoustic album Flaws came out with Steadman on lead vocals, and Rose performing backing vocals most notably on the title track “Flaws”, as well as others on the album.She also performs some backing vocal duties on Bombay Bicycle Club’s latest album, A Different Kind of Fix.
