Elizabeth Mencel, known professionally as Rozes, is an American singer-songwriter and musician. She started climbing the ladder to success in 2015 when she collaborated with The Chainsmokers on their smashing hit “Roses“.
Mencel was born in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania, in 1993. She grew up in a gospel-influenced household and studied piano from a young age. Furthermore, she also learned to play the clarinet, saxophone, guitar, violin, flute, and trumpet. She began pursuing a music career when she was in high school and, later, left the Temple University from Philadelphia because of that.
In 2014, Rozes collaborated with Just a Gent on the single “Limelight”, which topped the Hype Machine and gained more than 2 million plays on Soundcloud. One year later, she featured on the 3x Platinum-certified single “Roses”, by Chainsmokers. It peaked at number 6 on the Hot 100 chart and number 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic chart. In early 2016, Rozes released her debut EP, “Burn Wild“. The EP is a collection of 7 songs about love and relationships. In 2017, the artist collaborated with Cash Cash, on the single “Matches”, which reached 38 on the Dance/Electronic chart.
