Emily Deeanne Zaletel, better known as Emilee Rose, is an Atlanta singer/songwriter. At a young age she got her first taste of performing live when she’d sing for the residents at the assisted living facility owned by her parents. Emilee gained a lot of music knowledge from her dad. Growing up she listened to music dating all the way back to the 1940’s. Her father introduced her to artists such as The Beach Boys, Patsy Cline, ABBA, and Roy Orbison, who became early musical references. As a child she dreamt of being an opera singer, and started classical voice lessons and piano lessons at the age of 12. Emilee then went on to participate in Chorus and Musical Theatre during middle school and high school, further developing her love for performing. In her sophomore year of high school Emilee joined a competitive all-female acapella group, Take 7, performing folk and pop music. This was one of many experiences that took her love for music to another level, changing her dream of being a classical singer to being a pop musical artist. Emilee soon realized this was a way to express her creativity and personal struggles such as anxiety and depression. She started writing and creating her own songs, and it quickly turned from an intimate hobby to a passionate career. When she became 16, she took a leap of faith and moved to Atlanta to pursue her passion for music. 

Soon after arriving in Atlanta, she recorded her first few songs at Patchwerk Recording Studio, and the artist “Emilee Rose” was established. In 2019 Emilee Rose released her song “The Best” on all music streaming platforms, as well as its music video on YouTube. As of May 2020, “The Best” has accumulated over 155,000 streams on Spotify and Apple music, resulting in a growing fan base of “Stars” in her “Galaxy” in countries such as Germany, Sweden, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Emilee has made appearances on programs such as Hoodrich Radio and Heatseekers New Music Live Day on 107.9 in Atlanta. She is currently managed by Erica Kane of NO B.A.N Entertainment.

Emilee loves all genres of music including Hip Hop, Pop, R&B, Alternative, and EDM. She likes to incorporate all those genres into one when creating her own music, gaining inspiration from artists such as Rihanna, Beyoncé, Dua Lipa, The Pussycat Dolls and Amy Winehouse. Emilee not only writes about her own experiences; she also writes from other people’s viewpoints in hopes of relating to a broader audience. Emilee Rose has her own unique style that can be considered eccentric/futuristic and has a spunky fun personality. She is an artist that stands for empowerment and refuses to be labeled or held back. Yes, this bold Libra hailing from Atlanta is one to watch. Emilee Rose has arrived!
