Today, Guyanese singer/songwriter JUKE ROSS returns with his latest single “Fresh Roses” via Republic Records.
“Fresh Roses” is JUKE ROSS’ first single following his debut EP “Grey.” “Like a Fresh Rose needs rain and nurturing so does new love. The song is about being caught in the space between trying to latch on to the bliss of new love while escaping the sting of the past,” say JUKE. “Fresh Roses” showcases his signature acoustic style and sets the tone for what Juke has in store for 2018.
Located on South America’s northern mainland, the celebratory and life-affirming spirit of Guyana remains an undercurrent of JUKE ROSS’s songwriting. The youngest of 14 siblings, he can recall falling in love with music at a young age. The family radio played everything from Caribbean standards to Bob Dylan and Michael Jackson, and he would sit and listen for hours on end. Inspired by his nurse mom, he enrolled in medical school. In the midst of his studies, guitar beckoned to him. JUKE feverishly began penning music. Among those early compositions, he created “Colour Me,” which became an independent phenomenon, landed him a deal with Republic Records, and positioned him as one of 2017’s most exciting artists to watch!
