Singer-songwriter Kaylee Rose has released a new song, titled “Stuff” to radio and digital retailers. The new track talks about the emotional attachment one feels to the things that are left behind following a loss or breakup; conveyed in the lyrics of the song “ Not ready to say goodbye. When it’s love, it’s not just stuff.”
Rose, who is already gaining attention among industry insiders, commented about the song, saying, “Letting go of someone’s ‘stuff’ can feel like you are letting go of that person and the memories you made with them. For many, it can be an uneasy scenario and something that everyone has been through, or will at one point or another.”
Co-written by Kaylee Rose, Jess Soccorsi, and Blane Mitchell, “Stuff” is the artist’s first release of multiple singles set to be released throughout 2019. Recorded at Soundstage Studios and produced by Blane Mitchell, the track will be available worldwide through streaming and digital retailers.
Rose adds, “Compared to my other releases, this song shows a completely different side of me. I generally write upbeat music, so this was a different type of song I’m used to writing. I feel that so many people that can relate to the lyrics of this song, myself included. I loved how it turned out, and I’m excited about the new dimension it gives to my style of music.”
Kaylee Rose is a fearless 23-year-old singer-songwriter from St. Augustine, Florida, who has a unique style that blends many sounds across the musical spectrum. Originally hailing from Miami, she grew up submerged in a menagerie of musical influences and cultures which undoubtedly swayed her unique brand of country music. A childhood hip-hop dancer with aspirations of performing professionally, Rose’s father was the one who first saw music in her.
“My dad bought me my first guitar when I was 11, and we moved from Miami to St. Augustine,” says Rose. “St. Augustine is a small town, and I had a hard time making friends at first, so I started pouring my thoughts into lyrics, and after taking a few lessons, I began teaching myself to play guitar.”
At only 14, Rose began marketing herself and booking gigs all over St. Augustine after school and on weekends. She never said “no” to an opportunity while still managing to juggle her schoolwork and her positions as Dance Team Captain and Class President. After high school, Rose played four to eight-hour gigs every day to save enough money to move to Nashville. One year later, in 2015, she hit the road for Music City where she had two shows booked for the day she arrived. Rose made ends meet playing weekly at Rock Bottom Brewery and The Row while also working in the gift shop at the Johnny Cash Museum. Rose counts both museum owner Bill Miller and also Bart Herbison, the Executive Director of the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), as pivotal mentors in her budding career.
She has since been actively involved in Nashville’s music community and joined NSAI along with hit songwriters in Washington D.C. to promote the Music Modernization Act.
