"When asked what she wants her music to do for people, Rose Cousins simply lists: “Empathy, connection, relief, communion”. The JUNO Award winning songwriter, known for her distinct, pure voice, deeply truthful songs, collaborative spirit, and infectiously irreverent sense of humour, regularly brings listeners to both laughter and tears.
Ever since her 2006 full-length debut, Cousins has prioritized these things, emphasizing connection with her audience as well as with the people with whom she’s chosen to record and tour. Among them are some of the finest songwriters at work these days: Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jann Arden, Ron Sexsmith, Lori McKenna and Patty Griffin. Indeed, all the artists with whom she works seem to share Cousins’ emphasis on music as a path toward connection.
Her most recent album, Natural Conclusion earned a 2018 GRAMMY nomination. Rose also received a 2018 JUNO Nomination for Songwriter of the Year. The album won 3 East Coast Music Awards and 2 Music Nova Scotia Awards. She calls in her most vulnerable work yet. "
