Massey Hall presents Rose Cousins
Thursday, February 16, 2017
in The Great Hall’s Main Hall
Driven by a voice that evokes raw emotion, Rose Cousins’ music bravely explores the shadowy corners of the heart. Just as her songs embrace sadness, pain, and longing, these stark emotions are counterbalanced in performance by Cousins’ quick, wry wit. A native of PEI, she lives in Halifax, NS, deeply values being part of multiple music communities, and is constantly fueled by collaboration.
Her 2012 album We Have Made A Spark won a JUNO Award, 3 East Coast Music Awards, a Canadian Folk Music Award, and was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize. Her music has found its way into several TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy.
Rose Cousins will release her highly anticipated new album, Natural Conclusion, in February 2017 – recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer Joe Henry. Rose’s appearance at The Great Hall will feature a full band and will be her Toronto album release concert. It promises to be a special evening you won’t want to miss.
“Some voices hit you hard from first blush and this is one of them.” Exclaim!
“Stark, impeccably written songs … elegantly understated …” NOW Toronto ★★★★★
“achingly candid” USA Today
“It’s no wonder Cousins is the object of audience affection…” The Boston Globe
