At times, it feels like life is leading us away from exploring our creative potential. There’s a longing to rediscover your artistic voice, but you’re feeling uninspired and unsure where to start.
In Rhythm + Rhyme + Flow, we ease into a soulful embodied voice practice, combining movement, reflective writing, and spoken word into one harmonious flow that ignites inspiration and artistic fire.
Each one of us has a genuine voice that resides within our hearts. Like any muscle in the body, there are tools and exercises to strengthen the connection to our voice. A daily Embodied Voice practice is a creative way to bring vitality, ease, and confidence to our voice, translating to better listening and communication skills in everyday life.
What is Embodied Voice?
Embodied Voice is a subtle yet powerfully transformative practice that empowers our true, resonant voice to shine through. Whether you are new to exploring your voice or an established performer, the process nourishes and awakens the creative wellspring at the core of our being, allowing natural expressiveness, artistry and vocal strength to flow whole, healthy, and free.
Due to concerns around COVID-19 this event will be held virtually through Zoom. An email containing the link will be sent prior to the event date. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Christine at email@example.com.
Shea Rose has possessed numerous titles throughout her career: singer, songwriter, style icon, and music curator are just a few. Her music, influenced by soul, hip-hop, rock, and folk, speaks to identity, self-acceptance, and transformation. She has received numerous honors for her musical talents and is a recipient of the Abe Olman Scholarship from the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Rose is a featured songwriter and performer on two Grammy Award-winning jazz albums, The Mosaic Project (2011) and Money Jungle: Provocative In Blue (2012), both produced by legendary drummer Terri Lyne Carrington and featuring an all-star cast of musicians including Patrice Rushen, Cassandra Wilson, and the incomparable Herbie Hancock.
In 2017 Rose released the D.T.M.A. (Dance This Mess Around) E.P. She recorded and produced the album independently with funding from Kickstarter prior to being offered a contract by Virgin Records, which she turned down. The songs describe a struggle with identity and the conformity that often accompanies mainstream success. In advance of releasing D.T.M.A., Rose recorded a cover of Sinéad O’Connor’s “Black Boys on Mopeds,” a striking commentary on police brutality in black communities. Before her current releases, Rose put out two independent albums, the Little Warrior mixtape and the Rock’ n Rose EP.When she’s not performing, Rose is an Assistant Professor at her alma mater, Berklee College of Music, teaching in both the Contemporary Writing and Production and Voice Departments. She holds a B.A. in English and a B.A. in Communication from Pine Manor College.
Rose is a student of yoga and meditation, and she writes one poem a day!
