Meet Mariah Rose from Taunton, MA 

It’s been a minute since Mariah Rose made music. She took a hiatus from writing and singing to focus on other things, specifially, her health and wellness. Competing in body building competitions, learning about nutrition and overall wellness gave her the edge she needed in life, and ultimately in music.

Five years after Mariah put music away, she’s back. The singer/songwriter from Tauton feels the timing is right and the song to re-enter the music world is a perfect fit. “Young Girl” is a letter to the artist’s younger self. The song starts with a slow progression, as if the narrator is taking baby steps, before building and soaring into some long, strong vocal strides. There are spoken inspirational messages in between vocals in the climax.

Clearly, the break served this artist well. Mariah is a strong singer with a penchant for inspiring others. She hopes her song serves as a reminder to the listener that every step taken in life is meant to lead you to the here and now. It’s the journey that we will undoubtedly rememeber, and certainly learn from most.

    Mariah wrote “Young Girl” with George Varetimos who also produced the song. She relayed, “Once I heard the beginning music George wrote, young girl immediately popped into my head. “Young Girl” has a rock-n-roll feel with a country edge. The song is a message to my younger self. A reminder that situations and events will happen in ways that I didn’t expect them to but no matter what, I’m proud of who I am because everything that has happened lead me to who I am today. I let go of music for around 5 years and since bringing it back into my life, everything just seemed to make sense again. It’s the perfect song to have as my debut single because it’s a pure example of everything that I was and am today. My hope is that the song will be relatable to the listeners not only females but males as well. The overall message is what I hope the listeners take away.”

    Push play to hear “Young Girl.”
