FOREVEROSE (France / USA) // One Harp/One Drum/Two Voices: A Duo of Feminine Power. ForêveRose is a group from Lyon, France, which makes Dream-Pop-Rock, but prefers to not 'define' their music. Jess was born in Memphis, TN (in the US). She plays the electric harp and sings. Her music and lyrics flow from the emotions and pulsation of her heart. Lola was born in Lyon, France. She is a drummer, singer, and slammer. She writes her rhythms and lyrics to the beating dance of her heart. Together these two women create a universe full of emotion and groove. Their music is strong and gentle; fragile and powerful; tender and passion filled. These Roses combine their voices, the electric harp, and the drums to freely create a universe full of emotion, rock, groove, and intimacy. Inside their petals dance poetry, feminism, joy, and freedom. The music of ForêveRose trembles in your heart and takes you to an unknown and mystic universe.
