As self producing indie music artist “Dreamerqueen” I’m excited to share my original pop music. I am Rose, aka. ‘Dreamerqueen’, and I’m a music artist and ‘artivist’, independent producer, writer of poetry, songs, blogs, and a couple books, advocate, vlogger, mom, fashion lover, chronic illness warrior, survivor, defiant and creative foodie, joy stealer, free thinker, truth and peace seeker…and more. I feel that, in spite of barriers, I’m on a mission and a journey of healing. A big part of this includes my intent to share of myself and my abilities, in a way that may help and inspire others, and contribute to positive change - especially through creative outlets like music. In 2017 I composed, recorded and released my debut music album, Live To Dream. I hope to make more music again in the future. Many people who’ve listened to Live To Dream have really enjoyed it and have given it glowing feedback, as seen in reviews. The pop based musical style on Live To Dream is original, fun, melodic and catchy.
Music has always been a big part of my life, and a turn to for coping. Growing up I loved good music, starting with the oldies and motown hits my parents used to play in the car. I intensely watched musicals, as well. My favorite musicals were ones like Fame, Cats, Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables, as well as musical movies like West Side Story, Gypsy, The Sound of Music, and another handful more. As I grew a little older I soaked up all the great super pop hits from artists like Michael Jackson, Madonna, Ace of Base etc.. As a preteen I loved Aqua and The Spice Girls as well as some hip hop groups like TLC and Destiny’s Child, and great pop/rock artists such as Alanis Morisette, Green Day and The Cranberries - all not uncommon for the times. However, I’ve listened to and enjoyed all kinds of different music - so that’s really just scratching the surface! I’ve had lots of musical influences to draw upon for writing and composing, which evolved over the years, beginning at age 14. I started with writing poetry as a preteen but within a few years, and after a lot of listening to the radio, it evolved into songs as well.
Live To Dream is predominantly a synth pop style. Given my influences, it definitely has a retro flare, reflecting styles of the past, but with a fresh, modern vibe. It’s catchy and fun, but also meaningful, with melodic hooks and great beats. It’s received positive reviews from listeners. The theme, and the lyrics, are meant to inspire confidence in overcoming struggle, pain, grief, and discrimination. Listening is lots of fun - but there’s a powerful message and meaning behind it. The album softly reflects my life experiences. It's a sweetly sung but also fierce survival story, which I think many can relate to in their own way. Song by song it passionately unfolds and invites you to hum and dance with it..
...and maybe be inspired by it, too!

I am a survivor reaching for thriving by deciding to steal joy, pursue dreams and share my message in spite of fighting life-limiting illness. I decided to own my dream: To make music in spite of circumstances. I hope to encourage you to ‘own it’ too - which is why I choose to use the stage name “Dreamerqueen.
Spelled in this way, it’s meant to represent more of a sassy and creative ‘hero/heroine of your own story’… rather than a prissy or pompous ‘Queen.’
I have turned my passion into a musically electrifying ode representing struggles and hopes, while also being really fun to listen to, and I want to share it with you!
