Alicia Rose on new beginnings and finding her true voice as film director
At 25, Alicia Rose owned San Francisco. Moving there on a film scholarship and finding her legs as a DJ at KUSF, talent buyer at The Chameleon bringing in iconic bands such as The Jesus Lizard, Neil Hamburger and Courtney Love and touring as an artist under the name Miss Murgatroid, she was living the rockstar life. But, the question remained: “Did I do this or fall into a funny zeitgeist?” Thus at 25, Rose left her California roots and moved to Oregon for a fresh start.
Now in her 20th year as a “Bornegonian”, Rose has proven herself to be the ultimate renaissance woman. From working as a founding partner for Nail Distribution, Doug Fir Lounge and Mississippi Studios to becoming an acclaimed music video director, she is just now finding her true voice as a film director with her upcoming web series “The Benefits of Gusbandry”, which is currently raising funds on Seed and Spark.
The Gritty Birds Podcast sat down with Rose, to hear the ultimate story of new beginnings, talk about her upcoming show and listen to a preview from her new band “Moon Tiger”.
