New Patois Records release by Trelawny Rose

Shed A Little Light Trelawny Rose

Trelawny Rose, is a soulful folk-jazz vocalist with a deep love of a good backbeat. With her feet firmly planted in her early roots in gospel/R&B, as well as 70’s singer/songwriters, Trelawny explores the tension between jazz and pop, folk and soul, strength and vulnerability. She is driven to tell important stories, mostly very personal ones, by interpreting  and arranging songs that draw her in and also by composing her own.

With Shed A Little Light Trelawny Rose explores songs of struggle and resilience. Arrangements of jazz standards, pop standards, some obscure favorites and two original compositions.​​

“Trelawny Rose is the kind of pure talent that’s instantly accessible, classic and timeless. Her smooth delivery across a wide range of styles makes her one of the standout voices of a generation.”  – Josh Haygood, MTV
