At age four, Gigi Rose was learning to play the piano. Shortly afterwards she discovered her ability to also teach herself to sing, write songs and eventually play the guitar. After completing VCE at Padua College, Gigi opted to not follow her favoured tunes and instead studied bio sciences before working with the Peninsula RSPCA and Mornington Peninsula Shire.

With music pushed to the side, Gigi tried her hand at real estate, retail, renovating her first home, and travelling around the world. After this, she drifted back to her roots slowly in 2018, before speaking to Mornington Peninsula Magazine in early 2019 about the release of her first 10 original songs. Since then, you may have caught her tranquil tunes at Let Go Festival, Gods Kitchen, The Bay Hotel, Portsea Hotel, The Peninsula Showcase Festival, and weddings across the Peninsula. Setting off with her angelic voice, partner and their caravan to explore Australia and stopping at new places to perform throughout their travels was where this free spirit was headed in 2020 when the global pandemic hit.

“I had planned to start on the east coast, but this did not eventuate due to the COVID-19 restrictions,” Gigi said. “I spent most of my time in the mid-north coast of NSW in a small coastal town called Scotts Head. Here I was so fortunate to be able to spend time on the beautiful coastline meeting talented musicians with many different music styles. Musicians were unable to play at venues due to restrictions, so instead we kept our spirits up by supporting each other and getting together whenever possible. We were able to take advantage of the time to focus on practising new styles, building confidence and expanding our music skills. It really helped me shape my understanding of music and gave me so much encouragement to continue to learn and grow on my journey.”

Growing up in a house filled with music was bliss for the talented Gigi. Her parents sharing their passion for music with her is what helped shaped Gigi as a person and artist. Gigi’s a natural at writing songs and draws on her own experiences and dreams to create dreamscapes through her lyrics. This talented artist writes a few chords then adds some melodies and jumps on Garage Band to create her next hit. Gigi’s new single, Just Talk, is set to be released on Friday, April 23.

“Just Talk is about how life can be altered by rumours,” Gigi said. “It’s better to rise above gossip and not get drawn into it. Personally, I can be the type of person who sometimes has unrealistic expectations; I’m a little bit ‘away with the fairies’ but I often prefer it that way because it makes me strive towards making my bigger dreams come true.”

While the production aspect is challenging, Gigi believes you can learn so much during this stage through her close work with talented producers. Here she thrives on experimenting with many different genres, which also allows her to cultivate and grow her own style and sound.
