A few weeks back, a fresh-eyed L.A. transport from just outside of Boston, Rosie Darling entered the indie-pop scene with her debut single ‘Coping’. It has since charted on 11 different Spotify Viral 50 charts (including India, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand and Taiwan), and landed Top 20 on the Global Viral Chart.

With ‘Coping’ being her first artist statement, Rosie has now amassed nearly two million streams across all platforms.

A talented team of songwriters, producers, and engineers reached out from the onset, wanting to collaborate with Rosie. 

The indie-pop gem is co-written with Justin Gammella (Lennon Stella, Ashe, Blake Rose), produced by Andy Seltzer (Chelsea Cutler, Shallou, Joan), mixed by Michael Brauer (Coldplay, Florence and the Machine, Vance Joy), and mastered by Joe Laporta (Halsey, JP Saxe, Gracie Abrams).

Today, Nettwerk Records shares ‘Coping (Stripped)’. While the original recording is an intimate window into Rosie’s life, encased in a vulnerable kind of electro-pop, the piano-based ballad digs deep into the lyrical dexterity and sonic range that defines Rosie as a singer-songwriter and storyteller.

Intense emotional growth is often the best fuel for a musician’s creative fire, and Rosie has certainly turned pain into beauty on her debut single ‘Coping’.

Like many artists, Rosie grew up in a creative and bustling household. Around the age of twelve, her dad taught her a few chords on the guitar, and those lessons, coupled with the rise of mega singer-songwriters like Taylor Swift, propelled Rosie into her own storytelling. At fourteen, she got into the studio and found that the recording process came naturally to her. In her words, the studio is her safe place. After casually writing and performing throughout the rest of high school and college, Rosie decided to pursue music more seriously, toplining on some tracks and connecting with producers. 

In 2017, Rosie and producer OKO released ‘L.A.’, and at about three million streams on Spotify, the track has done well considering the pair released it entirely on their own. Later in 2019, Rosie wrote “Never Be The Same” for EDM duo Tritonal, and the track hit number one on SiriusXM’s BPM radio in the States.

After moving to Los Angeles from the East Coast, Rosie took on the daunting task of networking in a city that is notoriously spread out and filled to the brim with other artists on the rise. After only two years in LA, Rosie has built a strong network of producers and songwriters, crediting her success to her focus and determination, along with a bit of risk-taking. But fully pursuing a passion can come with a price, and Rosie has poured all the loss and love of the past couple of years into her forthcoming debut EP.
