Rosier is an outstanding bilingual group from Canada that forges a unique blend of folk traditions and pop textures. Folk at its core, the group takes over an audacious approach where old folk songs become the intimate accomplice of well-crafted indie-pop, all this while creating a full array of musical colours and flavours that engages and inspires listeners from the very first notes.
Rosier has crafted their sound over the last decade, playing across the globe at major music festivals and stages world-wide. Notable performances include the Edmonton Folk Festival (Canada), NPR Mountain’s Stage (USA), Rocky Mountain Folks Festival (USA), Festival Of Lights (New Zealand), Port Fairy Folk Festival (Australia), Tonder Folk Festival (Denmark), Festival Pause-Guitare (France), Edinburgh Fringe Festival (Scotland), to name a few.
With a compelling collection of award-winning music under their belt, and hundreds of thousands of plays on streaming platforms, the ten-handed music project is set on a clear direction: one where the unheard meets the existing, and stories passed down from generation to generation are rejuvenated with a contemporary twist.
