Sinai Rose

For up-and-coming singer/songwriter Sinai Rose, a chance prank phone call to a family friend may have been just the ticket to kick-start her career. The first break for the 12-year-old powerhouse performer came as a result of her playful nature combined with her signature talent.
“My mom was in the kitchen cooking and I decided to prank call one of her old music business friends, Audrey Martell,” remembers Sinai. “I left a voicemail singing one of her songs. She called back and asked. ‘Whose voice was that? Where did that voice come from?’” My mom was like, ‘Oh, yeah, that was Sinai.’ Audrey said, ‘We have to get in the studio to record something.’ That’s when the wheels started spinning and everything fell into place.”
Sinai Rose (pronounced suh-NIGH) is the only child of Shannon Cook, a music journalist/talent manager, and Kevin Davy, a reggae artist/musician who performs with The Wailers. They raised their daughter in an artistic environment and she embraced the opportunity to perform whenever she could. “My father would always have a band in the basement and I used to burst into the studio and take over the session,” she laughs. “I remember singing for my father’s friends when I was three. Back then it was probably something from Sesame Street.”
A triple-threat, Sinai has flexed her musical, acting and dancing muscles in everything from off-Broadway productions (Keep on Walking) to guest appearances on Nickelodeon shows (Naked Brothers Band Season 2 County Fair) to astonishing crowds at the acclaimed Apollo Theater Amateur Night and haseven appeared in various television commercials.
Sinai Rose is now the first original artist signing for KIDZ BOP, the most-popular and recognized music series in the U.S. for kids, celebrating the unique, authentic voice of kids. KIDZ BOP music titles have sold more than 11 million copies and earned 9 Gold® certifications since their debut in 2001. Rose is preparing her debut release for 2010 and her first single “LOL” is a featured track on the KIDZ BOP music series release KIDZ BOP 16 out on August 4th, 2009. Sinai is featured in the direct television advertising campaign and in the album packaging as well as prominently on the enormously popular A music video for “LOL” will debut later this summer.
Sinai co-writes all her music and lyrics and works with an impressive team including producers Jens Gad (Enigma, Sandra), Toby Gad (Beyonce, Fergie, The Veronicas), and Mattias Gustafsson (Backstreet Boys), as well as songwriters Kerrie Roberts and Audrey Martell.
Young listeners will feel the high-energy girl power anthems and be empowered by tracks like “Back Packin,” and the sassy “I Fought A Boy,” in which Sinai rocks out while remembering a particularly tough day at school when some rambunctious classmates made the mistake of picking on her in the hallway. As she says in the lyric, “I fought a boy……and I won!”
