About Rosi Golan
New York, NY
Rosi Golan is an Israeli born singer songwriter who has made many stops in her travels, including Germany, Paris and finally ending up in Los Angeles at the age of nine. During her travels, she not only managed to hone her infectiously melodic songwriting, but also learned to speak five languages: French, Hungarian, German, Hebrew and English.
Rosi is indeed a long way from home, but certainly in the right place to showcase her unique talent for rich, dark melodies and a voice that not only draws you in, but still haunts you the next day.
Those talents are on full display with her Marshall Altman produced debut CD, The Drifter and the Gypsy. The 11-song record has already yielded 16 placements including “Think Of Me” in the new Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook) film Dear John as well as shows such as One Tree Hill, Private Practice, Brothers & Sisters, Doll House, Biggest Loser and Ghost Whisperer. Her song “Shine” is the anthem for the international Pantene campaign and “C’est L’amour” is currently licensed to Chicco Clothing with ads in Italy, Portugal and Switzerland. She recently released a new single, “Follow The Arrow” in conjunction with a national JCPenney holiday ad campaign on TV, cable and radio that runs 6 weeks prior to Christmas.
Her songs “Think Of me and “Hazy”, featuring William Fitzsimmons, were added to Clear Channel’s NEW! Discover and Uncover radio station and her new video for “Think Of Me” just debuted on AOL Music’s spinner.com and Fuse TV.
Rosi, a Kobalt Music writer, has co-written numerous songs for other artists, including “Let Me Out”, a single from Ben’s Brother debut CD (EMI/Virgin). The song was featured on Grey’s Anatomy and nominated for the prestigious Ivor Novello songwriting award for Best Song.
Rosi has toured the US with William Fitzsimmons, Greg Laswell, Ari Hest, Jay Nash and Julian Velard. She's been featured in Billboard Magazine and Performing Songwriter and her song “Think of Me” was the recipient of the ASCAP’s first Robert Allen Award for songwriting.
