Performer since age four. Writer since age seven. CEO of Record Label & Publicity Firm at 15.
Rose Cora Perry is the former frontwoman of major label signed act Anti-Hero and has performed at some of the world’s most renowned music festivals including: Summer NAMM, Canadian Music Week, NorthbyNortheast, Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Regatta, Warped Tour, and MEANYFest NYC.
Bringing audiences of over 500,000 to tears with her emotional sound and sincere performances, Rose has been crowned a well-respected industry pro and has been named one of the Top #10 talents in Canada. In line with her efforts, in 2011, she was invited to attend the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles as a honourary special guest artist.
She's performed at Budweiser Gardens, graced the covers of magazines, achieved “Top 30” radio singles, conducted numerous guest lectures, served as a Voting Committee Member for the Jack Richardson Music Awards and was elected to represent the “voice of the independent musician” in a three-month expose for Canadian Musician.
While most recognized for her contributions to the Great White North's indie rock scene, as a classically trained performer with over 20 years on stage, Perry is skilled at singing in any genre and compelling audiences of all ages - a fact that was proved when she landed a starring role as Vivienne Kensington (Elle Wood's adversary) in Simply Theatre's production of Legally Blonde and was credited as playing the character with "the right amount of feline fastidiousness and overweening self-possession."
In 2010, Perry launched her critically acclaimed debut solo album, "Off Of the Pages" and its associated non-for-profit foundation, MusicSaves, which aims to impart onto troubled youth the healing capacity of music. In association with her foundation, Perry has volunteered her time as a Guest Speaker and Editorialist for a variety of Mental Health events and publications.
Beyond her music-making, Perry has worked as a Photography Model, Graphic/Web Designer, Social Media Manager/Publicist and is the brainchild of four successful column series. In 2012, she finally got to fulfilling a longstanding shelved dream of hers: to make the transition from Print Journalism to Broadcast.
Perry hosted two popular programs on RogersTV: London's Driven, a community-produced bimonthly pilot series which featured young entrepreneurs striving to make a difference in the Forest City and Mosaic, a regularly scheduled “live-to-taped” weekly program which profiled members of London’s multi-cultural community and the organizations that serve them.
Rose continues to regularly lend her talents toward various non-for-profit and community events acting as an Emcee, including London Defeat Depression.
2016 marked the triumphant return of Perry's musical efforts with the critically acclaimed worldwide release of her sophomore solo album, "Onto the Floor". In conjunction with the album's release, Perry formed high energy powerhouse duo, The Truth Untold, featuring the exceptional talent of Tyler Randall on Drums (Blind Mag/Swerve); Perry handles Vocals, Guitar and Songwriting. Windsor Bassist Kait Howard joins the band live on tour.
Within a mere six months of coming together as a live performance act for Rose Cora Perry's latest release, The Truth Untold conquered audiences of 25,000+ , performing at notable festivals and winning over crowds of 20-somethings and babyboomers alike.
Rose Cora Perry has three visions she hopes to achieve as an artist:
1) to inspire
2) to provoke thought
3) to relate
