Hailing from Vancouver’s North Shore, Rose Ranger‘s creative process is inextricably linked with the ocean and mountains that are just a stone’s throw away from her front door. Combined with her love of all musical genres and her utmost appreciation for all the creative arts – the blend creates a dynamic vibrancy in her songwriting process. Now with six albums under her belt, the multi-talented and seasoned songwriter is thrilled to be releasing new music into the world.
Her new song, “Power,” is about speaking the truth to those who are abusing their power. From the personal to the collective – it’s about justice and to finally stand up for oneself and to speak your own truth. It’s about how pain can be transformed into power and empowerment from the oppressive forces that want to keep us down and dim our light. It’s about finding strength in vulnerability and how they are connected even when it doesn’t seem like it.
Power can be used for good over evil as they say. It can be used for positive change or misused and abused. This song illustrates both.
“This album is about finding your inner hero and holding on to that metaphorical hero inside of us all,” says Rose. “Hang out with your allies in life. Don’t waste your life on the people, situations, or environments that try to take you down or drain your life force. Don’t let anyone make you feel like you don’t deserve to go for what you want in your life. It’s worth it.”
I’m Rose Ranger… I’m a singer-songwriter and actor born and raised in Vancouver.
My new single “Power” represents the instinct of freedom, dignity, equality, empowerment and truth. I cast two local Vancouver martial arts instructors to bring their Bo Staff talents to support the song’s message of strength and power. They’re sort of like back up dancers except they are even more badass! I filmed the music video in Vancouver at The Warehouse Studios which is such a beautiful space. Bryan Adams owns the studio- thanks Bryan!
I just try to write from an honest place, whether the song is autobiographical, about someone else, or entirely fictional. It has to feel honest. I find inspiration in telling it like it is and not candy coating the truth; unless it’s a candy-coated kind of song or the song is actually about candy! Writing from a personal lens often becomes the most universal message.
I’ll likely perform at some events later in the year and into 2023. I’m looking forward to it!
I have a few good ones for 2022, but it’s way more fun to show than tell… stay tuned!
