ColoRising Mixes 28: Rudie Edwards

With an entrancing voice as golden as honey, there is an uncanny power to every square inch of Rudie Edwards’ being. Drop dead gorgeous with a sultry yet playful flair, the London-based artist has already ignited a flame in the music business writing for the likes of CeeLo Green and Erik Hassle, just to name a few. Whilst one would assume that penning songs alongside mainstream giants would entice her to follow a particular pop formula for her own music, Edwards has proven out the gate that not only has she crafted her own sexy sound that can compete with anything on the charts, but as an artist, well…she isn’t like anyone else.

ColoRising Mixes 27: Red Rosamond

Red Rosamond immediately commands attention – visually striking red hair, a stark beauty and a distinct, classic elegance possessed by past starlets. With all of her positive physical attributes, when she opens her mouth to sing, you began to understand that she is more than just good looks, but rather a vocal powerhouse whose voice blasts with soul and emotion. The Los Angeles-based artist first gave the world a grandeur introduction with her song ‘Looks Can Kill’, an epic pop meets shimmering soul tune that was technically fitting for a major motion picture. Her latest single ‘Damn’ continues her streak of mountainous production and lifting vocals, all containing a timeless flair. It would be an understatement to say that Red Rosamond will completely dominate music, but to watch the process will be a part of the joy.
