A 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 Spark celebrated 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.

To make her new record Natural Conclusion, she enlisted GRAMMY award winning producer Joe Henry and a cast of brilliant musicians and singers from Los Angeles, Nashville, Toronto, Halifax, Boston, Vancouver and Prince Edward Island. The result is what Cousins calls “the most honest and vulnerable thing” she has made to date.So far, Natural Conclusion’s journey has brought a JUNO nomination for Songwriter of the Year, a GRAMMY nomination for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, eight ECMA nominations / three wins (Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Folk Recording of the Year), and two Music Nova Scotia Awards (Americana Album of The Year and Solo Album of the Year).
