Emerging Canadian country artist Olivia Rose is back her new video for “Gold”, which you can watch exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Co-written by Rose and David Borys (Wes Mack, Kadooh) and brought to life by Juno and CCMA award-winning producer Bart McKay, “Gold” is the first new music for Rose since 2019’s single, “Put It Like That”, which has earned almost 120,000 Spotify streams to dat.
In speaking about the new track, Rose says, “I’m not going to lie – my own dating history has led me to write my fair share of sad break-up songs. With David, we went in the opposite direction by starting at the beginning of a relationship instead of at the end, and we came out of it with something happy and upbeat.”
Far from a lavish sonic exploration of a high-rolling romantic adventure, the heart of Rose’s lyrics is really a nod to the “solid gold” connection that one can form with a true best friend and partner.
She says, “I want people to sing this at the top of their lungs in the car with the windows down. Having that perfect match in your life is such a rush and I wanted to capture and celebrate the spirit of that feeling in the lyrics and flow of the song.”
“Gold” is just the latest highlight for the Elk Point, Alberta-born artist, who got one of her first big breaks at age 14 when Canadian country legend George Canyon invited her on stage after an intermission set to perform her debut single. Since that formative moment, she has developed her artistry through a series of enriching experiences. A two-time Edmonton Music Award-winner for Rising Star, Rose participated as a Top 12 Finalist in Alberta’s prestigious Project WILD in 2018 and attended Canada’s Music Incubator in Toronto on a full Bell Media Prize scholarship in 2019.
As she enjoys the single release of “Gold”, Rose is currently nominated for Rising Star again – this time as part of the 10th Annual Country Music Alberta Awards – which will take place February 28th on YouTube.
