Bio

For the best part of two decades, Roz has been shaking things up, challenging perceptions and very much forging her own direction through the music landscape. There have been rock records, folk tunes, country and more recently a successful move into musical theatre. In total, she has released more than 10 records in various guises, perhaps the best known though with her much-loved duo Women in Docs. It was ‘The Docs’ that brought Roz’s incredible voice and song-writing smarts into the spotlight and a band that has seen her tour the country and the globe more times than she can remember.

Now based in Cairns, the one constant through Roz’s career has been a drive to do her own thing and consequences be damned. And nowhere is that more apparent on her striking new solo album Sound The Alarm – due out mid 2020. Honest doesn’t come close. Writing and recording the album has been a deeply personal process driven by a simple desire to hold nothing back.

Talking about the first single ‘Let it Go’, Roz says it all: “This song is about wanting to be the change. It’s about a desire to do things differently in my life with bravery and passion. I wrote this song in less than an hour and I feel a like a frickin’ roaring lion when I sing it. Love it. This was the first vocal take on the first song we put down and it pretty much stayed. It just felt right.”
