Rose Kemp (born 11 December 1984) is an English singer, songwriter and guitarist whose work has moved from acoustic folk to doom metal.

As the daughter of [a=Maddy Prior] and [a=Rick Kemp] from [a=Steeleye Span] (with whom she sang live while still a teenager), it is perhaps not surprising that Rose Kemp's early material (the 'Glance' album) is largely acoustic folk. However, from that point on, she began to move into a more heavily guitar-orientated direction and it is perhaps significant that 'Glance' is the only one of her albums that Kemp does not acknowledge on her website.

'Mini-Album' and 'A Hand Full of Hurricanes' can probably best be characterised as hard-edged indie-folk rock but 'Unholy Majesty' and 'Golden Shroud' have moved decisively into metal-edged doom rock, with Rose Kemp's image similarly moving from an indie waif to a woad-smeared warrior priestess. In recent years, she has played at both the Roadburn and Supersonic festivals.

Throughout the musical transitions, the constant has remained Kemp's voice, switching from ethereal to crushing and back again with effortless ease.
