In 1999, Rose became a founding member (and co-songwriter) of the band, Snapdragon. In 2000, the band signed with Straightline/Atlantic Records, releasing their debut album, The Family Jewels in 2001.  Subsequent tours followed, supporting veteran acts The B-52’s, Toad the Wet Sprocket, The Go-Go’s and Eddie Money. Between tour dates, Summer appeared on the Bran Van 3000 Discosis CD, performing the song, “The Answer” with rapper/producer, Dizzy D. Snapdragon continued touring and writing new material until the band split in 2003. Songwriter/musician Earl Slick offered Rose an opportunity to contribute backing vocals on his 2003 solo album,Zig Zag. The album's lineup included David Bowie, Martha Davis and Joe Elliot with production dates scheduled at Olympic Studios in Barnes, England. Summer co-wrote the tune “Crunched” with Slick, which also features Rose on lead vocals.
In 2006, Rose released the self-produced track “Time Bomb” featuring an accompanying (self-produced) music video shot entirely in Summer’s two-bedroom apartment. Producer David J. Holman later signed Rose to a deal with Ruckus Entertainment. The resulting album, Big Mouth (released in late 2006)  includes the music video “Liar” and the mini-documentary, "Behind The Video: Liar"  Rose and Holman assembled a touring band including guitarist Mitch Perry and drummer, Sam Aliano.  Later that year, Rose received both the Rock City News, “Best New Band” award and the LA Music Awards top honor, “Independent Superstar of the Year” where she and her band performed "Boomerang".

Summer’s soundtrack work includes “Candy Colored World” (performed by Snapdragon) for the 2008 film Stilleto (with co-writer Rick Jude) as well as several compositions (with co-writers, Tim Paruszkiewicz and Stephen Phillips) listed with licensing company, Transphonic Records. In 2017, Rose recorded the song, “America My Home” for the stage play “Independence—The True Story of Dr. Mary Walker” written by television Producer Lloyd J. Schwartz. The track was produced by David Alley and engineered by Mark Capps.
In 2011, Rose founded “Summer Rose Designs” (SRD) offering custom, hand tailored clothing made from exotic fabrics and materials. Singer Ariana Grande chose SRD to create the featured outfit for Grande’s debut single, Put Your Hearts Up. Later that year, Los Angeles based clothing company, Foxbait featured SRD at Los Angeles Fashion Week. In 2012, SRD briefly worked with singer Marilyn Manson, creating outfits for both Manson and drummer, Jason Sutter. In 2013, Emmy-Award winning make-up artist Melanie Mills chose SRD to create a Wizard of Oz inspired, “Dorothy” outfit, (also for Grande) featuring SRD’s handmade ruby slippers. In 2014, SRD’s outfits were used as model costumes for America’s Next Top Model (Cycle 21 Episode 10). In 2015, Foxbait and SRD were featured exhibitors at New York Fashion Week.
