British/Jamaican/Nigerian singer-songwriter Bianca Rose has been writing and composing for the best part of a decade. In 2007 she self- released her debut EP 'Truth and Tiny Tragedies', and has continued to collaborate and write songs for other artists ever since. Bianca’s live shows include sets for Sofar Sounds, Tigmus, London Jazz and One Taste Festivals, City Showcase, The Vortex and the CrimeJazz Festival in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. With additional performances for Playstation, OH TV, & radio play on Radio 1 and 1Xtra. As lyricist in the Ready Riters song writing collective, Bianca recently co-wrote X-Factor contestant Anastasia Baker’s debut album, resulting in Annastasia’s 2014 Mobo nomination.
Bianca has decided that 2017 is the right time to focus on her own music again, and release some of the songs she's written over the last few years.
"I feel like my musical journey was in some ways interrupted by my own personal struggles, but I've grown so much since my initial forays, so when I started writing the songs for this album, I had so much to say."
Londoner Bianca's personal story forms the basis for this project, as she's fought and won some major battles with fear and doubt.
"Most people write a bunch of songs and choose the best to then release into the world. But these songs are literally the first songs I wrote after winning some major battles with fear. In some ways they're my initial, unfiltered musings on a somewhat dark period." 'No Fear Here', produced by critically acclaimed jazz musician and producer Femi Temowo [George Benson,Andrea Bocelli,Amy Winehouse,The Roots, ESKA & Soweto Kinch] is an uplifting discourse on a very particular snapshot in Bianca's recent history.
Musically, No Fear Here is an expansive interpretation of the singer songwriter genre, fusing Bianca’s folk/gospel sensibilities with both Bianca and Femi’s african diasporic perspectives.
