17 year old singer songwriter, Rosie Byrne from Dublin, releases her single ‘Leaving With Me’ on Friday 3rd September 2021 on iTunes, Spotify and all streaming services. About to head back to school for her 6th and final year, Rosie is a very recognisable voice and face from her stints as a hugely popular busker every week on Dublin’s Grafton Street (Covid rules dependant!).
Rosie first started playing drums at the age of 10. However, when she moved into secondary school she realised that it was going to be hard to bring a drum kit into school every week for music classes and took up the guitar. She quickly fell in love with the guitar and found that it was much easier to write songs with her new instrument!
Rosie’s first EP titled ‘Proud’ was recorded in early 2019. The title track gained support on RTÉ Radio One from both by Fiachna O’Braonain & Gavin Glass.
In June 2019, Rosie won the ‘DownTime’ inaugural busking competition in Northern Ireland where the first prize was an Ed Sheeran designed guitar, made by Lowden. She was a finalist in 2020’s Forestside Singer song writer competition which gave her a slot in the recently held Glen Arm’s Festival in Larne, which was the first time she has performed to a live audience, since the first lockdown.
Her last release ‘Daylight Robbery’ got great support from various radio stations around Ireland.
Rosie can be found most weekends, hail, rain or snow, on Grafton Street, where she has become a regular among the very talented young busking community. YouTube channel ‘Dublin City Today’ uploads live videos of the buskers where Rosie regularly features and you can find over 100 live videos and interviews.
Rosie supported Brian Kennedy last year and was delighted to perform in the famous Ruby Sessions, the International Circle sessions and support Glenn & Ronan in 2019. She can’t wait to get out live gigging again!
