Folk music reminds us of where we came from and informs us about where we’re going –– or at least
that’s the bracing ethos of Montreal-based band Rosier. A group who spent their formative years wrapped
in rich, untouched musical traditions, they are just as attuned to the present and the future, challenging and redefining their world through a modern lens. Rosier injects exuberant color into familiar folk sounds, taking the roots that they have grown from and spinning their foundations into a movement. The result is mature, well-controlled music filled with emotion and a surprising freshness relevant in today’s shifting climates.
Reclaiming and interpreting the romantic traditions of Que´be´cois folk, the bilingual band Rosier was born from a place of living heritage. These offspring of a pioneering generation of Canadian folk musicians were raised together in the underbelly of music festivals with folk music beneath their fingernails and tradition on their tongues. This upbringing created a unique bond unlike any other; the quintet evolved together musically and individually, immersed in generations of story and song yet influenced by the world around them. They were driven not to simply reproduce the music of their beloved culture but to redefine it.
