If you research the catalogue of Anna Rose, you will find out that the accomplished singer, songwriter, and guitarist is walking, singing proof that big things most definitely come in small packages. The fiery dynamo with the sugary name has been working in the music industry for over a decade. Whether it is as an artist, a label head, a songwriter for film and TV, or behind the scenes alongside her father, legendary composer Alan Menken, Anna puts her passion for music into everything she creates.
Today, Rose reveals her powerful new single “Nobody Knows I’m Here” via White Pony / AWAL. Rose, who is known for her hard-driving rock, grunge, and dirty blues, has rediscovered her roots in the singer-songwriter world. Channeling some of the female greats of our time, from Joni Mitchell and Bonnie Raitt to Stevie Nicks and Patty Griffin, you can feel their influence flowing throughout the record.
Co-written by Rose and Mando Saenz, and produced by Paul Moak (Caitlyn Smith, Gabe Dixon, Marc Broussard), “Nobody Knows I’m Here” plays on themes of anonymity and ego. “It’s about choosing to envelop yourself in darkness in order to find the light again,” says Rose. “When I sat down with Paul for the first time, I knew something special was happening in the room. He understood not only who I am as an artist but also what I want to accomplish with my music. I am so proud of what came out from us working together.”
