Rose is the daughter of well known musician and song writer Billy Falcon - known best for his numerous Bon Jovi hits. "It wasn't like my dad prepped me or pushed me towards it. It just happened organically," says Rose. "It all started with poetry. I was going through an awkward stage in high school. I don't know if that was from losing my mom at a young age and being raised by my dad or if i was just awkward."
Those poems turned into songs and at only 14 she landed a record deal with Columbia.Her career ended up going more in the direction of songwriting, with her work picked up by stars like Faith Hill and Lady A. But her own voice has certainly been heard. "I had verizon wireless commercial, build a bear, estee lauder, jc penny. I could go on and on," says Falcon.
Now signed to Show Dog Records, Falcon says she is finally putting herself out there .She's released two EPK's and her very first music video for her single "If Love Had A Heart" premiered on CMT this week. "It's not about a specific heartbreak just wishing love was a little kinder to my heart."
People often ask her why she doesn't release a full album? Falcon says that's next, but for now she just wants people to enjoy a small taste of the truth and heartache she's turned into songs. " To me it's like talking. I'm just trying to communicate the lyrics the best way possible, the best way I know how to."

Tennessee sends search and rescue team to Oklahoma
May 21, 2013 16:19 GMT
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A Tennessee-based team of emergency service workers has gone to Oklahoma to help with tornado recovery.
Memphis Fire Department spokesman Wayne Cooke said that Tennessee Task Force 1 left early Tuesday from Memphis.
Cooke says the 80-member team will mostly help with search and rescue efforts after powerful and deadly tornadoes struck cities in Oklahoma on Sunday and Monday. Emergency crews are digging through the rubble of destroyed structures to find trapped people.
The team is bringing search dogs and semi-trailers loaded with equipment to help dig through collapsed structures and perform other duties. Cooke says the team consists of emergency personnel from around Tennessee.
The task force was one of several teams that deployed to areas affected by Hurricane Sandy last October.
