Los Angeles native Jimetta Rose has become a mainstay in the Los Angeles independent music scene, digging firm roots into LA’s burgeoning creative renaissance. Jimetta Rose’s music is not constrained by a rigid expectation of what art is or isn't; she draws inspiration from jazz, R&B and hip-hop.
The word “soul” embodies Jimetta's complex and mesmerizing sound. All aspects of her music from the unforgettable vocals mesh into an autobiographical testament to love's healing power. She truly bares her soul and shares her vulnerability as well as her strength. Her songs, her life and her art are a cumulative love letter; an autobiographical testament to life itself.
In January 2010, Jimetta independently released her debut solo album The Barber's Daughter. Laced with introspective prose, velvety vocal punches and exceptional production from some of Los Angeles’ most revered underground producers, her highly-anticipated solo debut is an impressive showcase of her talent as a singer, songwriter, poet and thinker.
Jimetta Rose has performed with many of the most popular artists and DJs in the Los Angeles music scene and abroad including Miguel Atwood Ferguson, Med and Blu, The Decoders, Alice Russell, Talib Kweli, Meshell N’Dgeocello, Erykah Badu, Joi Gilliam, Shuggie Otis, Zap Mama, Seu George, Shafiq Husayn, Dj House Shoes, Dj Rhettmatic, Bilal, Sa-Ra Creative Partners and many more.
This event will be live-streamed on SJZ’s YouTube and Facebook pages.
