Today, JUNO Award winning songwriter Rose Cousins shares her version of Prince’s classic, “I Would Die 4 U”, recorded together with Bear’s Den and Christof van der Ven while all were serendipitously in Toronto on a day off from tour.

“Prince died on my birthday,” Cousins says. “He was bigger than life and yet so utterly, humanly vulnerable. Everyone has their own relationship with his music; I find his story and talent fascinating and his death tragic. This particular song resonates with me and when I knew the Bear’s Den guys were in town I could hear us all singing it. We had no idea we'd all be in town at the same time until two nights before when I was at their show in Boston. I'm such a fan of these guys and I'm so pleased we got to collaborate again.”

Cousins' last project, Natural Conclusion, received notable acclaim, including a nomination for a 2018 Grammy Award, a nomination for Songwriter of the Year award at the 2018 JUNO Awards, and three wins at the East Coast Music Awards. Cousins also writes for film and TV and her songs have appeared on the programs Grey's Anatomy, Supergirl, Reign, and Nashville, among others. She has shared stages with heroic songwriters such as Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Lori McKenna, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jann Arden, and Ron Sexsmith.

ROSE COUSINS SHARES NEW VIDEO FOR “GRACE”

INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED NEW ALBUM, NATURAL CONCLUSION, OUT NOW VIA OUTSIDE MUSIC

Just in time for the Mother’s Day weekend, JUNO Award winning songwriter Rose Cousins is sharing the new video for “Grace” directed by Jenna MacMillan from her latest, internationally acclaimed album, Natural Conclusion. “The video enhances the heart of the song: regret, humility, atonement, forgiveness, the plight of being human,” says Cousins. “The experience for me, is enhanced by the generosity of the truly meaningful cast of the choir.”

“I had this video idea for ‘Grace’,” continues Cousins. “Me, solo at a piano in a church with a choir that is revealed at the end. I was intrigued by the videos that PEI filmmaker Jenna MacMillan was making for my friend Kinley Dowling so I dug deeper into her work, was very impressed and also thrilled at the idea of working with someone from home.”

“The making of it is a perfect small town story of needing help and the community showing up to make it happen. We contacted the church, collected friends and family and made a beautiful thing. The choir includes my Mum and Sister, a friend I’ve known since kindergarten, one of the first friends I made in University, several PEI musician friends (including Kinley), a former CBC journalist, a retired theatre director, a friend’s daughter.”
