NEWS: Rose Cousins Debuts Video For “Go First” From Acclaimed New Album “We Have Made A Spark” & Continues North American Tour

In late February, the award winning singer-songwriter from Prince Edward Island, Rose Cousins, debuted her short film “If I Should Fall Behind” The short film tells a story of a unique Boston music community that welcomed the  songwriter as she made her third full length album,  We Have Made A Spark. Now, Rose Cousins has debuted the first video from her new album for the gorgeous piano led “Go First”. “We Have Made A Spark” was released on February 28 by Outside Music to instant critical acclaim and Rose Cousins immediately hit the highways, freeways and flyways of North America in support. Full tour dates are listed below. 

Watch Rose Cousins and her band live at The Ironwood in Calgary on April 2nd

Rooted in authenticity and conviction of voice, from driving opening track The Darkness to stark piano ballad Go First, you feel as though Rose Cousins sings for you, about your life.  It is that sincerity that leads some to compare Cousins to our most beloved songwriters, and yet, her passionate delivery is distinctly, Rose.  From  writing songs from a tiny cabin without electricity on a New Hampshire island (All The Stars, The Shell) to the stage of one her many international tour stops her lone voice reaches out to listeners, all of us surrounded by our own forms of darkness, and charges us to have the courage to forge ahead.  

It’s not surprising that Boston performers were quick to adopt Cousins when she started traveling there 8 years ago.  To make We Have Made A Spark, she gathered her friends and collaborators Zachariah Hickman (producer) and Austin Nevins (who both play in Josh Ritter's Royal City Band), songwriters
Rose Polenzani, Kris Delmhorst, Mark Erelli, Jennifer Kimball, Laura Cortese, Amy Correia, Ana Egge, Edie Carey, members of Session Americana Billy Beard & Dinty Child, and multi-instrumentalists Sean Staples and Charlie Rose together to make the record at well-known American studio (Q Division) used by James Taylor, Aimee Mann, Patty Griffin.  Along with new music comes a short film called If I Should Fall Behind, about the heart of the community where the record was made.
