Local Spotlight – Rosa Loess

A native of Guelph, Rosa Loess' music flourishes through experience. Its realism hints at a deepness in the melodic spectrum of her wordplay - and she's showcasing it all this Saturday at The Black Box Theatre in Chatham.

Originality of expression and a profound propensity to be moved by life allow for meaningful creations to flow from her lips. Rosa's influences come from a broad range of genres. Although jazz is a clear one in many songs of hers, there is also indie rock, and blues, classical, punk, and just a general love of good music that fuels her pieces.
