“The soulful and electrifying melodies of singer-songwriter Corinna Rose are truly the next best thing to hit Montreal’s ever-growing folk scene” - Tyler Yank, She Does the City
Banjo wielding folk-rock troubadour Corinna Rose will make your heart flutter and use its beat to start a hoedown. Named after a traditional country-blues song, and her great-grandmother, Rose was raised on folk, but has always gravitated towards alt, pop, indie and prog rock. Rose crafts songs that simultaneously capture the warmth, joy and darkness of the folk tradition, yet unabashedly uses crooked rhythms, jazz chords and electric guitars. Her music is marked with heart-wrenching personal nuance, telling stories of nostalgia, loss, the countryside and breaking other people's hearts.
Released in August 2011, Corinna Rose produced and recorded her debut self-titled EP in a cottage in the eastern townships of Québec. Featuring musicians Matthew Daher (Drums), Leah Dolgoy (Autoharp), Nicolas Godmaire (Guitar) and Alex Leblanc (Bass), the EP is a mix of original barn-burning folk-pop tunes, and sharp indie-rock inspired ballads. Rose has been promoting her EP and touring across Canada by train this past year as a part of Via Rail's On-Board Entertainment program. She has played over 150 shows.
Corinna Rose's original song, Green Mountain State, a song written for a previous project, The Rusty Horse Band, is featured over the opening credits of Sarah Polley's film Take This Waltz starring Seth Rogan, Michelle Williams and Sarah Silverman. Rose has since sold over 1500 singles on iTunes, and in July 2012 Polley mentioned Rose in Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the top 5 artists she would like to work with on a future film soundtrack. Rose performed at premier of the film at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2011.
Corinna Rose participated in several festivals in 2012 including Canadian Music Fest, NxNE, the Montreal Fringe Festival and the All Folk'd Up Festival in Montmartre, Saskatchewan. She has previously performed at the 2011 Dunham Folk and Wine Festival and the 2011 Duckstock festival. She has performed alongside artists such as The Darling DeMaes, Christa Couture, Roxanne Potvin, Bent By Elephants, Ember Swift, Gabrielle Papillon, and These United States.
Rose recently finished recording her first full-length album, 'Northeast Southwest' at Mountain City in Montreal with engineer Joseph Donovan (The Dears, Sam Roberts). Joined by her band as well as talented string players Ari Swan (Folly and the Hunter), Quinn Brander (Lakes of Canada) and trumpet player Ryan Frizzell (Bent By Elephants) the album features 8 new tracks. Rose will be touring in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes right after the release of the album on April 11th.
