"An incredible musician!" - Labrinth (Singer/Musician/Producer)

"I was around to see Jimi perform 'Little Wing' in person back in the day and your interpretation made me emotional and gave me goosebumps" - Christine McVie, Fleetwood Mac
JJ Rosa is one of those rare and wondrous performers that find their way into music every decade or so. We are blessed. For she is real; she is beautiful; a voice that exudes soul; the mind to write infectious melodies and hands that play some mean guitar like some unorthodox lovechild of Prince Rogers Nelson and Jimi Hendrix.
Originally from Manchester, but now based in South London, JJ’s affair with music started playing piano and singing 'Happy Day' in her theatre school choir at the age of seven. Several years later JJ found her love for electric guitar when she discovered, via her dad's vinyl collection, the guitar god himself Jimi Hendrix, her addiction to guitar began here.
That multi-talented flare slowly but surely blossomed where Manchester legends Rowetta and Clint Boon, and Fleetwood Mac icon, Christine McVie are all singing JJ’s praises and now more recently Lauren Laverne, Labrinth, Jack Savoretti and Youngr are also amongst JJ’s ever growing fanbase!
JJ's multi fledged skills jump from multi-musicianship to song-writing to production. JJUICY Music (pronounced JUICY) is JJ's most recent venture. The beginning of 2020 JJ had a sync with her song 'Boy Boy' (self written and produced) with internationally known TOUCHNOTE and their LA set commercial + multiple syncs with headphone and speaker company DALI Speakers... More recently writing sessions where JJ has both produced and co-written with chart topper and serious throwback singer Catherine Cassidy AKA Sweet Female Attitude (known for 'I Bring You Flowers') + Producer/ writer Troy Miller (GIANT Rag n' Bone Man/ Laura Mvula/Emeli Sande /Gregory Porter/KYLIE etc), song-writer Fiona Bevan (One Direction/KYLIE etc) and now 2021 looks to be filled with more exciting collaborations with renowned songwriter JIN JIN backing JJ's most recent repertoire...
JJ has had an ever building reputation on the live festival circuit, having opened for Stevie Wonder and performed at
BTS at Hyde Park, US Ambassadors Party in Regents Park, OnBlackheath (opening for Paloma Faith/De La Soul), The Great Escape, Glastonbury (where JJ was featured as both ONE TO WATCH and TOP 10 ACTS OF THE WEEKEND) + Isle of Wight (BIG TOP STAGE), Festival No.6 the list goes on... JJ has performed in New York (Carnegie Hall opening for Dionne Warwick and Lulu, just to continue the name drops!) as well as around Europe, and at Fender’s 60th Stratocaster Anniversary.
Now also a Yamaha artist, JJ is waving the flag for 2 incredibly well respected music brands (more exciting things to come from this too! Watch this space…)
JJ has self created a sound that is best described a unique cocktail; full of punchy grooves and drenched in attitude, raw emotion and drive befitting that of a new music icon! Her songs are catchy as hell, sexy and will no doubt be tearing up the charts in no time.
There are so few musicians that are as ambitious as JJ and have such a pedigree and star potential. With anyone who glances her way hooked at first sight/listen, it will not be too long until the Manchester-born artist is one of the hottest names in music…
