Although she may be a relative newcomer to the vintage scene, Rose Devine brings a lifetime of experience to her performance with many years spent as a session singer & band member. But it was watching a vintage singer in Covent Garden 3 years ago which reignited the passion she had for retro tunes which began in her childhood with a love of Doris Day & her iconic movie ‘Calamity Jane’.
After soon realising that a career as a cowgirl wasn’t quite going to cut it, Rose concentrated on perfecting the songs she saw in films & later fell in love with the likes of Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald & Peggy Lee. An ever growing vintage wardrobe grew into an ever expanding repertoire of vintage songs & Rose Devine began performing as a vintage vocalist in 2013 at events in & around Derbyshire, even landing a spot at the prestigious ‘Summer of Vintage Festival’ in August 2014!
Her dream duet partner would have to be Caro Emerald for the dreamy jazz influences in her modern day classics & she would love a spin around the dance floor with Fred Astaire too! Have you seen Miss Devine move? If she is up dancing, then everyone is dancing along too!
Rose’s biggest performance to date was at the National Vintage Awards where she was nominated for ‘Best Vintage Style Performer’ where she got to share the stage with the likes of Kiki DeVille & The Tootsie Rollers. To be considered amongst the very best of all vintage vocalists across the UK in just 3 short years is a testament to the hard work she has put in to create an authentic retro performance.
