Rose Cousinswith special guest Ken Yates
Massey Hall presents
Following a sold-out performance at The Great Hall, Rose Cousins returns to Toronto, performing at The Harbourfront Centre Theatre this spring.
Driven by a voice that evokes raw emotion, Rose Cousins’ music bravely explores the shadowy corners of the heart. Cousins calls her latest album Natural Conclusion “the most honest and vulnerable thing” she has made to date. The Guardian explained, “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.”
Her 2018 nominations include The Grammy Awards, JUNO Awards and East Coast Music Awards which compliment her many wins for her 2012 album We Have Made A Spark.
A 2017 winner of two Canadian Folk Music Awards for Songwriter of the Year and New Artist of the Year, Ken Yates has steadily grown a reputation as one of the country’s brightest singer/songwriters. His sound offers the complete package—unforgettable melodies, emotionally charged storytelling, and top-notch guitar chops—all gloriously displayed on Yates’ new album, Huntsville. Produced by Jim Bryson (Weakerthans, Kathleen Edwards).
“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.”
