Event description

Description

The life of a solo singer-songwriter can be lonely by nature, but Canadian JUNO Award-winning Halifax, NS-based Rose Cousins believes that it doesn’t always have to be that way. Indeed, it’s no small feat to stand alone on a stage and create an instant community out of a room full of strangers, but this is Rose’s secret weapon.

With her four full-length albums and more than a decade of touring, Cousins has mastered this by employing her sharp, wry humour and candid honesty to pull the audience through the fourth wall. “In my work, I seek connection,” she explains. “Sharing the stage is about connecting with who's there and sharing that connection with the audience. It creates anexperience, a memory.”

She frequently brings her openers onstage to collaborate and has been known to wrangle more than a dozen other players for a comprehensive chorus during festival performances. Regardless of how many people take the stage with her, by the end of a Rose Cousins performance, all those present are linked—a group of strangers who came together in a room for one night, who were moved by the same stark moments in her deeply emotional, stirring songs.

“deeply caresses her exquisite vocals through a dozen songs that form an exploratory, intimate meditation on the mysteries of being human: identity, fraility, relationships, the nature of love and spiritual connection” - LA Times
