Bio

Talia Rose writes about her favorite robots and her least favorite feelings.

 

Born and raised in Boston, Talia picked up the guitar at age ten after telling her parents, “I don’t know, it just sounds fun.” An early love of fingerstyle guitar led Talia to seek mentorship from guitarists including Thomas Leeb and Jon Gomm. In 2016, she moved to New York to study Jazz at New York University with legends Peter Bernstein, John Scofield, and Adam Rogers. She then earned her Master's in Jazz Performance from New England Conservatory, where she studied with Julian Lage, Dominique Eade, and Ran Blake.

 

Talia’s 2018 release What Goes Unmentioned marked the beginning of an exploration of her voice as a songwriter. Her writing combines intricate guitar accompaniment and a complex understanding of harmony with carefully crafted, deeply personal lyrics. Talia's songs reflect elements of the music she grew up with; from the melodic sensibilities of Imogen Heap, to the vulnerability of Adrianne Lenker, to the wittiness of Prefab Sprout.

 

Talia’s diverse career has led to shows as a solo artist and band member at venues including Club Passim (Boston), The Blue Note (NYC), Duc Des Lombards (Paris), The Kofferfabrik (Nuremberg), and at the Belize International Jazz Festival. She has played alongside artists including Naomi Westwater, Heather Scott, Corey Hales, Ryan Peete, and Grammy-Award-Winning actress Milly Shapiro. In addition to her performing career, Talia enjoys time spent playing in musical theater pits, teaching guitar, mandolin, ukulele, and piano, and wondering what her sixteen-year-old cat, Buddie, is thinking about.
