Nick Rose is a 22-year-old artist, songwriter and producer from Connecticut, born in New Britain and raised in Plainville. Nick is the co-founder and creative director of his imprint, DONT TRIP RECORDINGS LLC.
Inspired by personal tribulations and his love for popular culture, a 12-year-old Nick started freestyling with friends at the school lunch table. Soon after, he began to utilize his talents as a writer and multi-instrumentalist to produce his own songs from his bedroom.
Since releasing his first full-length demo 'Purple November' in late 2017, Rose has built a colorful, genre-defying catalogue totaling 75 songs and 6 full-length projects, and counting. Including his biggest self-produced 2020 single "Nightmare" at 700,000 streams and counting, Nick's music has amassed over 1.5 million streams across all platforms. With years of experience performing around Connecticut and surrounding states - most recently opening for Ghostface Killah & Bizarre of D12 - Rose has received praise from publications such as Elevator and Daily Chiefers.
Nick currently distributes his music independently in partnership with HRDRV; in 2023, he will be releasing his next full-length mixtape - 'VERY COOL! Vol. 3' - as well as his literary debut 'To Simply Put It, Nonsense: A Creative Anthology'.
