J.B. Rose started her career in 1983 as a vocalist and actress. Her strong interests in working with young people, moved on to teaching drama and singing, as well as directing and producing plays for various youth groups, theatres and schools. In 1994, she was commissioned to write Darker the Berry for Second Wave. Her writing soon progressed to television, with the pilot sitcom Striking Out for Chrysalis TV (95) and episodes of Brothers and Sisters (UK’s first black soap drama) for the BBC. In the summer of 1997, J.B. once again took on the role of director, where It’s all about Us was performed at the Brixton Shaw. Throughout her career, she never strayed too far from her first love – singing. Having completed a vocal teaching course at London Music College, she continues coaching singers and released her debut album in 1998.
