Rose Spearman’s music credits include winning the prestigious European Border Breakers Award, two critically acclaimed international solo albums on United and Sony Music, performing international festivals such as Lowlands, North Sea Jazz, Montreux Jazz, Glastonbury, Exit, Sziget, Joshua Tree Festival and the Love Box Festival. Rose wandered the world as the lead singer of Kraak & Smaak. She collaborated with international DJs like Kerri Chandler, Boris Dlugosch, and Roger Sanchez and was invited on stage with Solomon Burke, Jools Holland, KT Tunstall, and many others. Rose Spearman was one of the few Dutch artists to appear on the American syndicated television show, Jimmy Kimmel. “Still I realize it is time to sing my own songs again because what I miss most, is being able to connect with the audience as a live artist.”
Meanwhile Rose has been busy with the “other side” of the music industry, starting up her own international music company ‘M.A.R.S. Label Group’, with offices in Europe and the US. The company connects music fans with music makers and is built on the reputation of tenacity and ingenuity.
Rose says, “Assisted by a number of loyal industry professionals around the world, I am proud that the label has already released some top ten albums and I’m very excited about the new albums that are coming out now and receiving great reviews. I see it as my mission in life to release music and promote artists. Every day when I wake up, there is a new song waiting for me in my email inbox, having the feeling that I can be part of something very unique and special. Running a label and receiving recognition with our endeavor has been quite a job but, it is something I can see myself doing always.
