Hunter Rose is a Cape Town-born artist who is making all sort of waves in the music interest with her amazing neo-soul sound. She is versatile and I was lucky enough to get a few minutes of her time to find out what makes her tick, what are her life hacks and what is in store for us with her music coming out soon. The Art Study series video with her is below.
I met Hunter Rose through a friend of mine who happens to co-own a record label Hunter is signed to called RudeworldRecords based in Cape Town. They commissioned us to do some work for Hunter and the rest is history.
In a recent articles by 10n5 she described her music as follows
“I would describe my music as soulful, sincere, sultry, spicy, experimental, empowering
and centred on more than one type of love, especially my upcoming project. I’ve
explored so many different sounds over the past 6 months but all of them are and will
always be rooted in soul and have a certain vulnerability to them that I try to maintain
in all of my work.
“I’m drawn to genres like, neo-soul, funk, deep house, alternative R&B, bass, and
more recently acoustic ballads and I’ve tried to incorporate all of their elements into
my music. I write my own songs so choosing beats that reflect my ever-changing world is very
important to me. I make music with the intention of soothing the souls of my listeners
and allowing them to escape into an exciting world of truth, bad bads, unapologetic
love and glamorous fearlessness and imagination…even if it’s only for three minutes.
Because at the end of the day I want them to experience the same bliss, expression,
innocence and peace that music gives me.”
