“My inspiration comes from St. Louis and life experiences,” said Rose Logan. “When I write, I am talking about who I am and what I represent.”
ST. LOUIS – Rose ‘Sunny Rain’ Logan’s award shines in the introductory album
The moment you see Rose “Sunny Rain” Logan for the first time, you immediately become interested in who she is – from her brown and black mid-length dreadlocks to her detachable gold mouthpiece to her edgy tomboy chic. Style. Her aesthetic makes you wonder who she is and what she does.
“The grill is reluctant, my fraudulent network strategy. It’s a conversation starter, ”Logan said. “I’ve never really worn a grill until now because when I started making videos I decided I wanted a certain look.”
Her introductory project “Sunshine” begins with “That’s Crazy,” a reflective song that expresses gratitude as she counts each blessing. “Country Gramma,” a tribute to everyone proud to be from Gateway City, pays homage to the hometown heroes we all love and who we recognize for being the hip-hop scene of St. Louis put on the map, St. Lunatics. Five more tracks are included in the project.
“My inspiration comes from St. Louis and life experiences,” Logan said. “When I write, I am talking about who I am and what I represent.”
Logan’s favorite song from the album is the second track, “We Own,” which she says is an ode to the place where she was born.
“It’s basically about where I’ve been and where I am now, how grateful I am to be from the Midwest.” Said Logan.
Logan’s producer Issac “Sir Issac Da Inventor” Watson, whom she has known for more than a decade, produced “Sunshine”. His successful collaboration with Logan is noticeable in the project.
“It’s always good to be in your element and you can express yourself artistically,” said Watson. “I had a good time working on the album together [with Logan]. ”
Both agreed that the creative process was seamless and definitely a mood. Watson said that it usually started with curating a beat from scratch while Logan was bringing in rapes at the point in her head. Or sometimes he would provide input suggesting a certain concept and direction for how to hear the songs flow.
“Our creative process is really organic. It’s about building the song the moment we go into the studio and digging deep into how we can create a new sound, ”said Watson.
When Logan was growing up, his interest in music began between the ages of eight and nine. As the only child in about 15 years, she had to find ways to keep her occupied.
“I sold my own mixtapes in elementary school,” Logan said. “When I was in fifth grade, I would play instrumental CDs, then put a tape on my mother’s stereo and record my voice. Then I would take it to school and bill my classmates $ 1 for it. I performed in the playground and on my DARE degree, which stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education, a program that educates children about the harmful effects of drug and alcohol abuse.
Logan is happy with the unity among other artists in town and looks forward to the next rapper from St. Louis.
“St. Louis is on the rise right now. If there hasn’t been one lately, there will definitely be some space shakers coming soon, ”Logan said.
Logan’s EP ‘Sunshine’ and her other music are available on all digital streaming platforms. For the latest information on new music releases and tour dates, visit their website: sunnyrainwrldwide.com.
Logan is a 2009 graduate of Parkway North High. She has been featured in Hip Hop Weekly, The Source, Thisis50, and Sway’s Universe.
