The Sweet Sounds of Ellysa Rose

Ellysa Rose ReviewEllysa Rose gives you one thing, and then surprises you with another. With a sweet take on pop, she could stand alongside Christina Perri. “Content With a Memory” isn’t what I expected. Rose proves that you can never judge a book by its cover. On the outside, she appears to be an Avril Lavigne type; a punk rocker with a pop side. Instead this song comes through like a true blue singer songwriter. It sounds like a song that would make the four chairs on “The Voice” turn around. It’s clear that this is a girl who wears her heart on her sleeve. Even when she’s covering other people’s songs – it’s crystal. She takes on Wiz Khalifa’s touching track from the “Furious 7” soundtrack, “See You Again” and creates this haunting presence with it. Rose has a great grasp on who she is an an artist from “Content” to “Be Free.” She’s like if you took Anna Kendrick in “Pitch Perfect” and blended her with Cassadee Pope. If you’re a fan of constructed pop that has a story to tell, check out Ellysa Rose. (
