TooFab's TooGood Artist of the Month stops by our studio to talk about life after "surreal" tour with Maroon 5 and sing two new songs.
Singer-songwriter Rozzi seems to be OK with going about the whole "rock-star fairy tale" completely backwards.
Discovered by Adam Levine at the age of 19, Rozzi was propelled into stardom seemingly overnight. By 21, she was signed to 222 Records and was touring the world with Maroon 5, but "it wasn't completely everything that it seemed," Rozzi told TooFab when the TooGood Artist of the Month stopped by our studio.
"There was so much about it that was so surreal and fairy tale-like," she said of her years spent under Levine's management and touring with his band. "Ultimately, it wasn't necessarily the environment that was allowing me to be in touch with the artist within myself."
Now 26, Rozzi is currently signed to Small Giant and is gearing up to launch her debut album. Despite having parted ways with Maroon 5's frontman, she said their relationship is "all love" and that it's an experience she's still "eternally grateful for."
It was only after she "broke up" with Adam that Rozzi was able to fall in love for the first time, but as she quickly came to discover, "love isn't always enough," which is the basis of one of her very personal new songs, "Never Over You."
