Cailin Russo: September Rose

With a pedigree that boasts Scott Russo (frontman of punk band Unwritten Law) as her father and an appearance in Justin Bieber’s early videos (she was his love interest in “All That Matters” and “Confident”, Cailin Russo seems destined for her own life of creativity. Her new single September Rose is due for release this Friday 10th March.

With 501k Instagram followers and 115k Twitter fans, along with countless dedicated websites, the Milk Model and self-made star is now a fully-fledged social media celebrity as well as a successful campaign face.

“Roses don’t grow in September,” Cailin explains. “September Rose is about a young love relationship happening and it isn’t working because it’s not the right time.” This subtle, powerful concept lies behind a jazz-infused hip hop combination that flows under Cailin’s emotive vocals. With inspirations ranging from Gwen Stefani to the likes of Lauryn Hill, Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder, this old soul is a true creative with strong ambitions and inspirations, saying, “It was Erykah Badu who said if you write it down, it’ll happen.” Wise words indeed.
