GEN Z POP PHENOM CLAIRE ROSINKRANZ RELEASES NEW EP: 6 OF A BILLION

LISTEN TO 6 OF A BILLION HERE

“”Remi Wolf and Benee fans, take note of TikTok breakout Claire Rosinkranz, who will surely be your next favorite.” – Billboard

“2020 may have been a banner year for Rosinkranz, but it’s a culmination of the work she’s put into her craft.” – American Songwriter

After building anticipation for its arrival, Gen Z singer-songwriter Claire Rosinkranz releases her anxiously awaited sophomore EP, 6 Of A Billion, today via slowplay/Republic Records.

Listen to 6 Of A BillionHERE.

She heralded the project with her most recent single “Boy In A Billion.” In a week, it has already amassed over 1 million total streams. Attracting critical praise, The Honey Pop fittingly described Claire as “what’s next in pop music.” In addition to plugs from DORK and more, Clash raved the track “underlines her alt-pop prowess.” The project also boasts “Frankenstein,” which has reeled in 6 million streams and counting.

The EP could double as the ultimate Gen Z teen flick with the star as its narrator. The opener “Hotel” glides on a bouncy beat wrapped in sunny guitar as she details the art of sneaking out (without getting caught) and promises, “One day I’ll write a story that’ll sit on a shelf about partying with my friends at some random hotel.” On the opening track, Claire says, “I wrote this song about the feeling of sneaking out, partying with friends, driving fast and eating pasta.”

Her voice seesaws over a sparse riff on “Pretty Little Things” as she laments with a soft croon, “All these pretty little things in life we have to learn to ignore. Everything culminates on the jazz-y feels of “LAX.” Her powerful delivery echoes in tandem with a bold horn section on one last crescendo.

Check out the full tracklisting below.

Claire definitely asserts herself as one of a billion and a new kind of pop outlier! Stay tuned for more soon.

Claire’s most recent single, Frankenstein, has already been streamed more than 5 million times in less than a month. Additionally, she attracted acclaim from various outlets, including Dork and The Honey Pop who raved, “Our jaws are on the floor at the growing potential and stardom of Claire!”

“Frankenstein” marked Claire’s first collaboration – with M-phases, Chelsea Lena, & artist Lexi Jayde.  Another quirky and catchy bop, cowbell holds down the guitar-laden beat as Claire adds her own 21st-century spin to the song inspired by The Cardigans’ classic 90’s hit “Lovefool.”  She immediately shocks pop back to life with the hook, “Guess, I gotta build my Frankenstein.

Claire continues to receive rave reviews from tastemakers in the media. Billboard says, “Remi Wolf and Benee fans, take note of TikTok breakout Claire Rosinkranz, who will surely be your next favorite.” American Songwriter remarked, “2020 may have been a banner year for Rosinkranz, but it’s a culmination of the work she’s put into her craft.”

Under his direction, SF Ballet has become a company widely recognized as one of the finest in the world.

Tomasson has balanced devotion to the classics with an emphasis on new works, cultivating frequent collaborations and commissions with choreographers such as William Forsythe, Christopher Wheeldon, Alexei Ratmansky, Trey McIntyre, Cathy Marston, and Mark Morris, among many others. He has choreographed more than 50 works for the Company, including full-length productions of Swan LakeThe Sleeping BeautyRomeo & Juliet (taped for Lincoln Center at the Movies’ Great American Dance), Giselle, and Nutcracker (taped for PBS’s Great Performances).

He conceptualized the 1995 UNited We Dance festival, in which SF Ballet hosted 12 international companies; the 2008 New Works Festival, which included 10 world premieres by 10 acclaimed choreographers; and 2018 Unbound: A Festival of New Works. Tomasson has also connected SF Ballet to the world, through co-commissions with companies including American Ballet Theatre, The Royal Ballet, and Dutch National Ballet; and major tours to Paris, London, New York City, China, and his native Iceland. In 2020, Tomasson received the San Francisco Arts Medallion, created by the Museum of Performance + Design to recognize those individuals whose leadership, action, and generosity have benefited the cultural life of the San Francisco Bay Area.   

ABOUT THE SAN FRANCISCO BALLET

San Francisco Ballet, long recognized for pushing boundaries in dance, has enjoyed a long and rich tradition of artistic “firsts” since its founding in 1933, including performing the first American productions of Swan Lake and Nutcracker, as well as the first 20th-century American Coppélia.

SF Ballet is one of the three largest ballet companies in the United States and currently presents more than 100 performances annually, both locally and internationally. The mission of SF Ballet is to share its joy of dance with the widest possible audience—in its community and worldwide—and to provide the highest caliber of dance training in its School.
