Roz loves people! She enjoys making people feel welcomed, heard and appreciated and music is her super-power. Born and raised in Guyana, a culture rich in Reggae music, then moving to the US and being exposed to the soul music of Motown, Roz beautifully blended the two to develop her own unique sound and style that she calls "Reggae Soul Music." With it she delivers creatively fresh lyrics and a captivating performance that inspires her audience. "I grew up singing in church choirs and listening to music while cleaning the house on Saturday mornings, but I didn't know singing would become the passion that it is today!" Inspired by the sounds of The Rhythm and Praise Party, a radio show hosted by dj P.DOGG, Roz learned to memorize lyrics as she listened each week to artists like Flame, J.R., Lecrae and many others. It wasn't long after when she began to co-host a similar radio show. Hosting the show deepened her love for the music, the people and for God.
" 'The Takeover' was the name of our show and that's exactly what we did! It was a good time. We would get in the studio and basically takeover the airwaves with all our favorite songs and the people were tuned in and loving it!"
Not knowing that she would one day be a featured artist on the Takeover, Roz made her debute on Derek Minor's Redemption album with a feature on the song "Blow my mind."
It was during the recording of that song where she recognized her passion and gift of singing! Shortly after, through a friends' encouragement, Roz began to write her own songs. Her diligence in writing has since earned her such awards as Artist Writer of the year at the annual GMA Immerse Conference and as her passion continues to grow, Roz writes and performs her music both nationally and internationally.
Her works include co-writes along with vocal features that can be heard on Derek Minor's Album, “Empire” on the Songs Stranger and Bable Two, Nobigdyl’s Rapzilla release for the song Impossible and on the song Tight Rope which can be heard on Minor’s High Above EP. Roz has performed at several notable venues nationwide including the New Daisy Theater of Memphis, TN, Detroit's Mack & Third Live, Buffalo New York's Kingdom Bound Music Festival and Nashville’s Hutton Hotel Analog venue to name a few.
Internationally, she has performed in the Philippines and a five country tour took her to the African nations of Zambia, Botswana, Uganda, Rwanda, and Ethiopia as the vocalist for artist Mahogany Jones. With a special ability to engage the youngest of hearts, Roz has even released a kids album through her church and after working on Empire, Roz Remixed the song Stranger for her first solo release. Her latest single, White Flag is an inspirational anthem of hope that can be purchased and streamed on all major platforms and heard on respected FM stations such as Nashville’s Lightning 100 and WXNA. A current resident of Nashville, Roz loves collaborating with other local artists to co-write and produce music. She also enjoys serving her local community by investing in the lives of the next generation through serving at her church. "I enjoy each opportunity given to me by God and I'm thankful for the grace he gives me to steward them for his glory."
