Rising artist and LA-based singer-songwriter Annika Rose has released her debut EP, Ventura Boulevard, today via TaP Records. Demonstrating her innate talent as an artist far beyond her years, Annika’s debut EP features five songs that perfectly capture her feelings at their most unfiltered moments and the EP bears a raw authenticity that is so elusive in pop music today. In addition to previously released singles “In The End” and “I’m Better,” Ventura Boulevard features new lead single, “Fly To You” (see full track listing below). On “Fly To You,” a folky yet romantic track, Annika ponders over a distant crush, “What’s the point of this if you’re not here with me? Where you are is where I want to be.”
