At the end 20A native of Prince Edward Island, Rose Cousins lives in Halifax Nova Scotia. She deeply values being part of multiple music communities, and is constantly fueled by collaboration. Cousins’ 2012 album We Have Made A Sparkcelebrated her Boston community and featured a cast of musicians Cousins had known and played music with for a decade. It won a JUNO Award, 3 East Coast Music Awards, a Canadian Folk Music Award, was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize, and made picks/best of lists in USA Today, NPR Music and Oprah Magazine. Her music has found its way into several TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy.13 Rose Cousins reached a limit she didn’t know existed. Fearing burnout after years of constant touring she made a deliberate decision, barring a select few shows, to stop touring and focus on other creative avenues.
Her goal was to connect with artists, writers, and producers to make songs in new ways, new sounds with new people, not knowing where they would go and not needing to. Her catalogue and perspective expanded, and in that time her new album, Natural Conclusion, was conceived.
A long time film photographer, she spent time shooting, developing film, and printing photos using the dark room at the NS School of Art and Design. She also held a deep desire to develop skills in co-writing, so she began in Nashville the fall of 2014. From then, and throughout the following year, she traveled to Los Angeles, Nashville, Toronto, Ireland, and Boston where her focused creative time yielded dozens of songs, photographs, relationships, and a much needed change of pace.
