London Rose “Kick Drum” Artist: LONDON ROSE Label: ELEVEN 18 Video: “KICK DRUM” Director: Owen Thomas Add Date: December 2, 2013 London Rose brings soul to pop. She grew up with a deep passion for everything from Motown to blues. At 17-years-old, she formally kicked off her musical career. Over the next few years, she cut her teeth playing hundreds of gigs and supporting legends such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Chicago, Morris Day & The Time, KC and the Sunshine Band, and more. Meanwhile, the Pacers and Colts personally tapped her for multiple events including national anthems, and she garnered honors at the Great American Song Contest and the Unisong International Songwriting Competition. However, 2013 saw her songwriting talents bubble up to the forefront. Heading to New York, she teamed up with the likes of Greg Camp [Smash Mouth] and Jeff Franzel [Josh Groban, N*Sync] to pen what would become “Kick Drum.” In the process, she harnessed her own sound. “Kick Drum has an energetic and really fun dance vibe, but there are some very emotional lyrics and ballads on the EP,” she affirms. “I wanted to do something that incorporated the energy of the music I grew up on with a modern feel.” That’s instantly apparent on the single “Kick Drum”. Blending the right amount of show-stopping soul and dance floor motion, she kicks off the next phase of her career. “It’s a relationship song about not being able to say exactly what I want to say in a situation,” confesses London. “I’m admitting that I have all of these feelings, but I have trouble communicating them. If you understand, you’ll feel the beat. It comes down to how I express myself through music and connect emotionally to it.” The video is a perfect pair for this tantalizing song and captures London Rose at her finest. She seamlessly blends the pop and dance genres while adding her signature touch of soul. It combines terrific lighting and cinematography, combined with a kaleidoscope of colors and visuals that makes us feel like we are flying through the heart of a rainbow! Rich with texture and vibrant projections, “Kick Drum” is a perfect song for introducing this dynamic artist, which shines a light on her all-encompassing talents. London Rose is this year’s artist on the rise, and the video clip for “Kick Drum” is just the beginning of the road for this revolutionary talent.
