“Rose Hendren – Brito” – Interview

American Country Songwriter Rose Hendren-Brito may be a new name to the songwriting industry, but Rose has been writing songs for as long as she can remember. She was born and raised in a small farming and ranching community in Eastern New Mexico. Rose grew up in a large family; she is the eleventh out of thirteen children. Growing up in a small town there was not a lot for kids to do. Rose would often spent time alone writing poems, which in time inspired her to write lyrics. With the love of music and the love of writing, Rose and her siblings would often get together and sing each other songs that each of them had written. Some songs were crazy, some were true, but they would always lead to Rose singing her favorite songs “Crazy” and “Bobby McGee” for everyone. Rose enjoys listening to all types of music, but country will always be her favorite. She grew up listening to her favorite artists such as Patsy Cline, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, George Jones and Don Williams – who are still her old time favorites to this day. Her current favorite country artists are, Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, just to name a few. Rose said that sometimes song lyrics just pop into her head so she scribbles them down and adds them to her pile of lyrics that will eventually be used in a song. Rose also said that writing is therapeutic and there is no particular style or time in which she likes to write, but when she writes she prefers being alone and doing it the old fashion way, with pencil and paper. However; she is open to trying different types of song writing techniques. Although Rose put her song writing dream on hold while she and her husband worked full time and raised two daughters, she would always write in her spare time. Now that her children are grown, Rose feels that this is the perfect opportunity to follow her dream of becoming a professional songwriter and hopefully learn to play the guitar. Teaming up with singer/songwriter Michael Rey, Rose and Michael wrote their first song together “Kiss Me” and are finishing up the loose ends on their second song “Drive On”, and Drive On, is exactly what she intends to do. Rose hopes to keep writing with Michael Rey for as long as possible and together create memorable songs that last a lifetime. Rose said she knows it would be impossible to become as great of a song writer as Willie Nelson, or Kris Kristofferson, but she would be blessed just to come close. Rose also has a great love of animals, and hopes to one day follow another big dream of opening up her own foundation for helping animals.
