It wasn’t long after Kaylee Rose arrived in Nashville via Saint Augustine, that she took the city by storm and began making the kind of songs that only Kaylee Rose can create. The unique quality of her musical works has captivated new fans, both young and old. She has received industry praise and a favorable response from thousands of SoundCloud listeners. In June of 2015, shortly after Kaylee had moved to Nashville, she was selected by Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) to perform with hitmakers Rhett Atkins and Kendall Marvel at the Gibson Guitar Showroom in Washington, DC. She’s also recently landed a spot on the Roscolusa Songwriters Festival lineup, alongside songbird Kim Paige and hitmaker, Jeffery Steele.
While still young at just 21 years old, Kaylee continues to perfect her live performance, but it does seem to come somewhat effortless. While in high school, Kaylee made money by playing over a thousand live shows in little bars and restaurants near her hometown, to save up enough money to move to Nashville. The former hip-hop dancer, who learned guitar at age 11, admits that her Florida roots helped tailor the crossover sound we hear in one of her most popular songs, “High On You”. The singer-songwriter and musician completed a self-titled EP project produced by Matt McVaney, that was released last Fall.
In March of 2017, Kaylee announced the release of the first single “High on You” (Rose/Stevens/McVaney) on Spotify and Apple Music. Last September, it was announced by Music Row Magazine that Kaylee had just signed an artist development deal with Pennington Entertainment, whose roster includes duo Thompson Square, Parmalee, and Hudson Moore.
