Jazz vocalist Rose Colella currently performs regularly at Chicago’s top jazz clubs and hotels, including The Jazz Showcase & The Green Mill, alongside the city’s top jazz musicians. Rose released her critically acclaimed album “Small Hours” in 2009 and plans to release her next album in the coming months. Rose received her Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Studies from Roosevelt University in Chicago and owns the entertainment agency Lola Bard Productions, named for her grandmother, a 1930s vocalist who performed and recorded with Bobby Hackett & The Original Dixieland Jazz Band. Rose & Lola were recently featured in The New York Times, with a story detailing Rose’s career as a jazz vocalist in Chicago, inspired by Lola’s career as a jazz vocalist in New York City.
