December Luna Music is a musical project created by Jessica Rose Price, violist and composer/arranger. Rose has 16 years of musical experience and exposure, starting with viola lessons from Professor Paul Windt of Muhlenburgh College in Pennsylvania. She received private vocal instruction from Lunda Cornelius, for five years, and was also involved with Pennsylvania Youth Theater in dance and theater. She graduated from the Lehigh Valley Performing Arts High School in Pennsylvania and was a violist for the Young People’s Philharmonic & Moravian College Orchestra; she then went on to be the second chair violist for the Richmond Philharmonic in Virginia.
In the beginning of 2011, Rose was the violist and assistant recording producer of Gypsy Cat Project, a guitar/viola duo who performed in Tucson and Las Vegas. By June she started her solo music career, began composing, and tutoring viola students. Rose performed at many nightlife hot spots in Tucson, including People’s Imports, La Cocina, The Hut, Tucson Botanical Gardens, and at the Fox Theater with the Tucson Civic Orchestra. She also was a special guest on The Duke and Cat Show—Access Tucson, and The Breakfast Club hosted by BSceneLive. Her unforgettable viola playing & vocals have been heard alongside several other bands, including Dr. Meatpie, Cinder Bridge, Top Dead Center, Heaven’s Gators, Modern Feedback, and One Heartbeat. Currently, Last.FM, CauldronFM in the UK, and No Label AZ Radio, circulate air time for Rose’s original songs. The Hermetic Library featured December Luna Music’s original songs, “The Golden Rule” and “Tourniquet,” on the Magick, Music and Ritual series of anthologies. Rose is now performing with the acoustic band, THE PRICE IS RICE at venues all around the Lehigh Valley, Pocono’s and Reading areas, including the Sherman Theater, Sarah Street Grill, Revolutions, and The Gin Mill, to name a few. Rose Price was nominated for “outstanding string instrumentalist” for the Lehigh Valley Music Awards 2014. December Luna Music’s second solo album, Children of the Mystics will be released in the near future.
