May Roze is truly a world musician – a singer/songwriter born and raised in Switzerland but currently residing in London and France. Growing up in a musical family, perhaps it is not surprising she performed on stage for the first time at just 3 years old!
She continued her passion singing and dancing in musicals at the tender age of 6 and aged 8 set about vocal training with some of the best international coaches such as Stéphanie Dumouch and Nick Cooper (vocal coach for Beyonce, Emeli Sande, Ciara, Zendaya, and others.) In 2012, aged 16,she signed with TGIT Management Company and recorded 17 English and French covers at Metropolis Studios in London and the Electric Lady Studio in New York.
In 2015, May made it to the semi-finals of the Swiss Eurovision (Eurosong Contest) with the song “Letter to myself”, co-written with Lise Cabble. In the same year she made the bold decision to move to London to start writing her own pop/R&B music with renowned producer-composer Load Track. It was a wise move! They started working on lots of tracks together and released a fair few singles throughout the year. But it was in 2018 that May really started to make her mark in the UK when her single “Again”, a song about leaving someone behind and learning from mistakes made, reached number 23 in the Commercial Pop UK Charts and number 1 in the Kings of Spins.
Now she is revisiting “Again” with a new distinctive Hip-Hop/ R&B Remix. She says herself, this version shows a new side to her music:
“After releasing the original version of “Again”, my producer and I wanted to explore a different sound. That’s when we came up with the Remix. It was a way for me to show a different side of my music, more R&B, with some dance parts in the video, a direction that will lead what’s coming next.”
It is definitely a song most people can relate to in some way too, and not necessarily in a negative way. Sometimes you meet people because you need to learn from the experience. As May says: “at the end of the day, it really is here to make you grow.”
