Biography

Active: 2000s-2010s
Country Of origin: United States of America

The possessor of a voice that always projects warmth, wisdom, and spirituality, Jimetta Rose has been involved with a remarkable quantity of the progressive R&B and rap that has flowed out of Los Angeles since the late 2000s. The singer and songwriter counts Sarah Vaughan, Minnie Riperton, and Erykah Badu among her cross-generational pool of inspirations. Likewise, she easily adapts to her surroundings and can fuse a multitude of genres and styles, including jazz, soul, and hip-hop. As a guest collaborator, her highlights include Sa-Ra's "Love Czars," Shafiq Husayn's "Lost & Found" and "On Our Way Home," House Shoes' "Castles (The Sky Is Ours)," the Decoders' version of Riperton's "Reasons," and MED + Blu's Madlib-produced "Burgundy Whip." Just as significantly, Rose has some independent solo work to her credit, including The Barber's Daughter (2010) and The Light Bearer (2016), albums that feature the off-center funk touch of kindred spirit Georgia Anne Muldrow. Throughout her career, Rose has been active as a performer in support of many of her studio collaborators and others. She has also run a theater group. ~ Andy Kellman~ Rovi
