“With a captivating and unique sound that draws its inspiration from a variety of genres her productions are crystal clear yet reveal an underlying grit…‘Rosy Disposition’ is an introduction to one of Cape Town’s freshest sounding producers.” – Themba Kriger, Red Bull
“Rosy Disposition is my tendency for optimism knowing that it will lead to disappointment. I realised I need to be objective and think beyond my own perspective. When I am disappointment or when I make a mistake in life the responsibility should not land on anyone but myself. It’s easy to forget this when we live in a world where everything is about ourselves. This is my catharsis (cause music emotions feels obvs).” – Rose Bonica.
