Scottish-born Roma Rose released her debut EP Ghost last year, showcasing her delicate mix of pop folk sounds and introspective storytelling.
Ghost was nominated for the Weekender's 'EP of the Year', and won huge support from BBC Introducing, BBC Radio Scotland and Arts Council England - who funded its creation and release.
Committed to fighting sexism and ageism in the music industry, Roma works closely with platform Mamas in Music to help break down some of the barriers facing women returning to music after becoming a mother. She is currently collaborating with top writers and producers from London to Nashville, with a new EP in the works for 2024 release.

Music and motherhood
During her break from music, Roma had her first child. This experience, coupled with a particularly long and grueling recovery, instilled in her a powerful drive and determination to create again and a desire to be open about motherhood.
“I wasn’t sure what my place would be - should be - in the music industry after becoming a mother. I was originally going to hide it. Why should it be relevant? But after lengthy discussions with Jess (co-writer/producer) we decided to challenge this instinct and the fear of not being as creatively creditable after having children. Music is all consuming. So is being a parent. So I’m embracing both worlds together, in all their messiness.” - Roma Rose
Strongly believing that in order to be the best example to our children, we must live our fullest lives and chase our dreams, her music takes you on a journey of self acceptance, whilst also exploring the universal, genderless journey and reconciling who you once were with who you are now.
