Rosi Golan is an indie singer-songwriter originally from Israel, now residing in Brooklyn, New York. Since 2008 she has released 2 LPs (Lead Balloon and The Drifter & the Gypsy) and 2 EPs (Fortuna and Collecting Bullets). Her songs have been featured in feature films such as Dear John and Tiger Eyes, various TV shows such as Vampire Diaries, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Brothers & Sisters, One Tree Hill, Ghost Whisperer, and numerous commercials for companies such as Chicco, Pantene, J. C. Penney and Walmart.


Golan was born in Israel, but made many stops in her travels, including Germany, Paris and finally ending up in Los Angeles at the age of nine. During her travels, she not only managed to hone her infectiously melodic songwriting, but also learned to speak five languages: French, Hungarian, German, Hebrew and English.

Golan began songwriting in Los Angeles after purchasing her first guitar on a whim. Soon after, she bravely began performing open mics at LA staples such as Molly Malones and Genghis Cohen. In 2003, Golan moved to New York to begin recording her first demos, promoting through Myspace as well as many other internet outlets. While never releasing those early songs, she did begin to hone her live performance skills by performing at open mics, cafes and small venues across New York City. She also began collaborating with other songwriters during this time. One of those early collaborations was with UK songwriter Jamie Hartman (Ben’s Brother). Their song “Let Me Out” was first released in the UK (EMI) and was Rosi’s first single. It was nominated for the prestigious Ivor Novello award for Best Song. In 2006 Rosi became the winner of the first ASCAP Robert Allen Award for songwriting excellence, she was recognized at the annual ASCAP awards show at Lincoln Center.
