Rose Cousins with Rosalind and Greg Genre
Sat Apr 6 @ 8.00 pm - 11.00 pm
“The simplicity of these songs is deceiving; as sparse as they feel, her voice draws you in until you realize you are at the heart of the storm.” The Guardian
“conviction and heart … haunting to uplifting in an instant” Maverick UK ★★★★
“…singer-songwriter Rose Cousins delivered an exquisite album, “Natural Conclusion,” that’s easily one of the most distinguished Americana releases of 2017” LA Times
“Cousins has a disarmingly fluid vocal tone and an ability to convey the most internalized emotions — disappointment, grief, resolve, forbearance — without an ounce of fuss.”
Introspective, harmony driven folk from York. Daring, soaring melodies, melancholia with irrepressible wings; Rosalind twine melodies and heart to create music that will wash over you. Old before their time, their songs handle nostalgia and the loss of innocence, creating deeply personal pieces with a delicate hand.
