Rick Rose has been active in the music business for over 25 years, with songs on over 20 CDs, some charted in
Canadian Radio’s Top 40. He wrote the theme song for the Orion Film’s “Rude Awakening,” and wrote
“Dreaming Out Loud” for Doc Walker, two-time Juno Award Nominees. Rick is featured in three international
books, Tales from The Rock And Roll Highway, Spider With The Platinum Hair, and All The Young Dudes.
Rick has shared the stage with Eddie Money, Billy Ray Cyrus, Three Dog Night, and Barbra Mandrell, and has
toured Japan, Europe and Canada. He has written songs with respected songwriters such as Desmond Child,
Jim Steinman, Paul A. Rothchild, Mick Ronson, Roger Clinton, and Anton Fig. He was a staff songwriter for Sony
Music and Warner Tamerlane, and has recorded music for Elektra, Columbia and Attic/Polygram Records.
Rick resisted offers in New York City and Nashville, choosing instead to stay in Niagara Falls. He continues to
perform locally and immensely enjoys working with local upcoming artists. He operates the “Niagara Institute
Of Music & Arts," participates in charity events, and sits on Niagara Falls’ Arts & Culture Committee. Rick is
proud to be the producer of two local Arts & Culture Committee CDs, “A Niagara Christmas Tapestry” and
“The Spirit Of The Falls,” co-produced with Mark Matthews. Honesty and humbleness are wonderful qualities
in this truly talented performer!
