If you don’t know Loni Rose by name yet, you will. In fact, chances are you’ve already heard her music. In the last few years, Loni has landed over 20 of her songs in many network television shows such as Providence, Roswell, Jack & Jill, Meet My Folks, and MTV’s Road Rules. Her music has been featured in several major motion pictures, including the title track in Sony’s 2001 release, Life Without Dick, starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Harry Connick Jr. and in 1999’s hit comedy, American Pie, featuring her song, “I Never Thought You Would Come.”
It’s this kind of instant appeal that has earned Loni Rose a place onstage with artists like Chris Isaak, Shawn Colvin, Vertical Horizon, Five For Fighting, Nelly Furtado, and Kenny Loggins. Combine that success with an arsenal of over 100 songs and four independent releases and you’ll discover an artist with staying power.
After delving into violin, piano, and saxophone lessons in her earliest years, at age 16, Loni discovered her passion for playing guitar and for songwriting. In 1993 Loni released her Christmas song, Evergreen Christmas, in the Pacific Northwest. Since the song’s conception and release in 1993, Evergreen Christmas has held one of the top 10 slots on Seattle’s Warm 106.9 FM’s Top 200 Christmas Songs Countdown. By 1999 Loni had won a coveted slot at Lilith Fair and last summer, in her hometown of Seattle she won the KISS 106.1FM “Battle of the Girlbands.”
Loni Rose is a firecracker performer, a little bit pop and a little bit Austin Texas. She croons with the best of them and onstage, she shines. This fall, Loni will be in the studio accompanied by her band recording her much anticipated new album, “Bittersweet Disaster.”
