APHROSE is an Indie-Soul artist from Toronto, Canada. Raised in the culturally diverse neighbourhoods of Scarborough, Aphrose's musical tastes were shaped by all the various genres present in her Trinidadian household: genres such as Soca, Calypso, Reggae, Soul, Gospel, classic Bollywood soundtracks and even Country.
Life-changing experiences inspired her to honour her family history and take on the artist name of Aphrose. In her own words, she explains the significance of this name. “I’ve been raised and taught by some of the strongest, most loving women in the world. My mother's birth name was Aphrose and I chose my new name to honour her and the many powerful women in my life who give me strength and purpose.”
Aphrose released her first single, 'The Middle' (produced by Scott McCannell, Giordan Postorino & Jim JR.) in June of 2017 and 'Move On' (produced by Scott McCannell) in February 2018, and is making waves with her music which is a unique blend of old meets new, amongst fans and critics alike.
Aphrose's EP "Fire" is expected to release in Fall 2018.
