Meet Rozzi Crane

You won't forget Rozzi Crane. Inspired by Adele's honest soulfulness and Beyoncé's commanding charisma, Rozzi Crane is passionate to a fault and diligent in her effort to stir an audience. "I want people to have fun, the way Prince can make people have fun," says Rozzi, "but also I want to write songs that articulate how people feel." "I want to write music with the kind of emotion Alicia Keys expresses with her songs."

Born and raised in San Francisco, the 19-year-old singer-songwriter fell in love with music in her first grade talent show. "I'll never forget that feeling I had after I finished my song. I just knew that was what I was meant to do, that I would be a performer for the rest of my life."

Born and raised in San Francisco, the 19-year-old singer-songwriter fell in love with music in her first grade talent show. "I'll never forget that feeling I had after I finished my song. I just knew that was what I was meant to do, that I would be a performer for the rest of my life."

Since starting study at USC's elite Popular Music program, Rozzi has had the honor of opening for Frankie Valli And The Four Seasons, The Steve Miller Band, Neal Schon of Journey, and the underground sensations Chiddy Bang and Milkman. Currently Rozzi is rehearsing with Sergio Mendes and will join him and his band as a lead vocalist on their international tour this summer.

Four of Rozzi's original songs can be heard on Lifetime Television's second most watched film of all time, "Sins of A Mother," starring Jill Scott. Rozzi's compositions in that film received recognition from the New York Post and other media acknowledging Rozzi as an artist to watch.

After finishing her first California tour in the summer of 2010, Rozzi is back in Los Angeles where she has made the Dean's List at USC. With the recent release of her new EP and more new songs on the way, this is just the beginning for this talented, young artist.

Pop Goes the Music Program
"  Rozzi Crane, a singer-songwriter from San Francisco, was another student chosen to open for Miller’s band. 'It was such an honor and so much fun,' Crane said. Before she started at USC, Crane already had worked with high-profile musicians from Tower of Power and Credence Clearwater Revival. 'It was just wonderful timing that this program started this year,' she said. 'I was really considering taking a year off because there wasn’t a place like this where I can do exactly what I want to be doing. It was absolutely my first choice,' she said.  "

Single Review: Back and Forth

Quote from SF Bay Guardian:
"  Neither Rozzi Crane nor Taylor Thompson had ever performed in a club, which is understandable since both are 15. Crane, a Christina Aguilera–inspired siren from San Francisco, hit the stage first with a three-song set predominantly of oldies: Gladys Knight's "If I Were Your Woman," Brandy's "Baby," and the blues standard "Call It Stormy Monday." She was solidly backed, as were the other participants, by Clear Soul, a jazz-imbued quartet that is especially distinguished by member Quetzal Guerrero, who alternates between acoustic guitar, congas, and electric violin. Though her cadenza on the blues was overwrought, Crane has alto pipes that are remarkably pliant, and her phrasing at times suggested an Anita Baker influence. She shows much promise and is currently working on a demo with Sundra Manning, Ledisi's former musical director, now Prince's organist.  "
