The Austin 100: Baby Rose
Hometown: Washington, D.C.
Why We're Excited: Baby Rose's voice is a remarkable instrument: It dispenses weary, heartsick ache with the deep blues of a woman trice her age. You'd never pin down the D.C. native's age at 25 — unless you'd seen her revelatory Tiny Desk performance, of course — but everything about Baby Rose's soulful, wounded R&B feels out of time in the best way.
Listen to Baby Rose's "All to Myself"
