Rosemary was the contractor & co-conductor of the 100 Voice Choir that was featured on Neil Young's ‘Living With War’ album & movie. The Superbowl, President Clinton’s Inauguration and The Grammy’s have all been graced with her unparalleled vocals. She won a “Telly” award for a compilation video of her performances with these artists created as an introspective look at her fascinating career.
Blessed with a 4-octave mezzo-soprano range, her vocal expertise is a technical marvel. She began her career playing the bass and singing in an all-girl Orange County based band called the “Ladybirds”. The band appeared on several L.A. area television shows & even opened for The Rolling Stones! She formed the all-female hard rock band “Birtha” that released two albums for ABC-Dunhill Records. Rosemary’s latest solo album, ‘YOU JUST WATCH ME’ was released in 2013, with the help of her friends, Kenny Loggins and Jackson Browne, which was met with great critical acclaim.
