Urica Rose is a unique talent. Originally from Texas, the Southern girl moved North to Queens, New York at an early age. Over the past decade she has been entertaining both Rock and Hip-hop fans across the NYC Metropolitan area. She is a singer with an impressive vocal range and an even broader affinity for musical styles.
As the front woman of an Alternative Rock band, and then later as a solo artist, Urica Rose has made a name for herself in the Big Apple. In recent years she has been invited to perform a series of high-profile gigs including; Lincoln Terrace Park and Prospect Park in Brooklyn, Six Flags Great Adventure and the Giant Stadium Annual TailGate Event. She was even requested to sing the National Anthem at The Paramount Theater in Long Island. All the while she continues to write and record her own genre-defying original music.
“Murda” is Urica Rose’s current single and the lead track from her most recent solo album, “Evil Pussy.” In keeping with the artist’s innately unclassifiable sound, the song is a wild mix of musical styles. As an acoustic piano churns chords in the distance, Urica sings in praise of her own badassness over a downtempo groove that mixes elements of Trap, Reggaeton and a down and dirty Dubstep-style bass. Urica’s performance is equal parts attitude and skill as she drops gangsta rap lines into soulful R&B and Pop melodies, lyrically invoking the great Bob Marley along the way.
