The life of a singer-songwriter can be lonely, but JUNO Award-winning Islander, Rose Cousins believes that it doesn’t have to be that way. When a Cousins performance ends, all those present are linked—a group of strangers who gathered for one night, moved by the same moments in her stirring songs.
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.
