Artist Spotlight: Rebel Rose

Rebel Rose is an independent music label based in Newcastle upon Tyne, focusing on emerging artists to help them grow and reach a wider audience. Rebel Rose was launched in October 2019 by Jay Landman and Laura Rosierse, both music industry professionals that had already been working in music for over four years. They decided that together they would be able to help more artists, and after a year of working with several artists, on live shows and on PR-campaigns, it was time to expand. 


Born from a shared passion for music, and a commitment to championing emerging artists, blossoms Rebel Rose. A collaboration between Jay Landman of Pillar Artists and Laura Rosierse of Lively Music Management has flowered into the rising of North East-based indie music label Rebel Rose. Both individuals have been working in their local music scene for over four years and decided it was time to combine forces and give the North East music scene its well-deserved boost. 


Jay Landman is well-known for putting on sell-out gigs throughout the United Kingdom and has been influencing friends, family and anyone who wants to hear it with his impeccable taste in indie and alternative music. 



Laura Rosierse has been managing Dutch artists and swam across to live up to her own expectations in the UK and started managing British acts as well while still maintaining her connections with the Netherlands by booking Dutch act in the UK and vice versa.


Rebel Rose works together with Monomyth Records and has worked on music from Georgia Lee, Kahuna, Courtyards, The Banquets and many more.

Single Review: ‘Tell Me’ - Jay Moussa-Mann

by Ilana Hawdon The feeling of pure betrayal and heartbreak is perfectly captured in Jay Moussa-Mann’s latest single, ‘Tell Me’. Jay Moussa-Mann is the folk dream we have been waiting for. A favourite on BBC Introducing, Radio 6 and BBC Radio Tees, Jay ’s sound is easy on the ears but delightfully addictive. With a background in writing and film, she began her solo musical venture when she released her debut album, ‘Little Deaths’ in late-2019, and since then, Moussa-Mann has defined herself as an artist with unbelievable range and promise.    ‘Tell Me’ is completely timeless; with notes of Carole King and Joni Mitchell, Moussa-Mann creates a folk-inspired track which is simultaneously heart wrenching and strangely empowering. Beginning as a simple guitar tune, ‘Tell Me’ builds with layers of luscious strings and twinkling piano, tied together with Jay ’s vocal line which is equal parts melancholic and divine. The song feels unwaveringly intimate; the lyrics ask, ‘what was I worth?’

Single Review: 'So Deep' - Brianna Knight

 by Emily Jackson New York-based singer-songwriter Brianna Knight’s latest track, 'So Deep', is a declaration of love without any soppiness; it’s pure soul. With a voice like honey that oozes power and control at the mastery level of some of her biggest influences (Lauryn Hill and H.E.R.), Brianna’s vocals soar.  ‘So Deep’ is an intoxicating listen and in just under three minutes, Knight sells you a whole story about fun, lust-filled young love. The heavy funk bass line evokes nostalgia, making you want to get up and dance, whilst keeping things contemporary by being an upbeat tale of passion rather than your bog-standard ballad. Brianna’s sound blends 90’s R’n’B with a modern take on Soul; hearing just the first few notes is enough to wish that she could narrate your wildest nights and worst heartaches.   As Brianna sings “you’re addictive to me” - you stop and realise that you may just be addicted to her. Just before you think the single couldn’t get better, the first verse c
