“Jacob’s songwriting has a chilled-out, earthy vibe that you can’t help but tap your foot to.”
— Calum Graham
With heartfelt energy, Jacob Rose is a Canadian singer-songwriter based out of St. Stephen, New Brunswick. Mixing rural roots with insight and influence from extensive travel, Jacob’s songs offer hopeful melancholy and nostalgic reimaginings of genre.
Jacob Rose shows are personal. He gets right into deep values, vision, and protest, without things feeling heavy-handed. There’s light and air in Jacob’s approach.
With over a decade of songwriting and performance experience Rose has played folk clubs, house concerts, festivals, and internationally.
In 2015, Jacob Rose recorded his first E.P. titled Last Another Day at Lake Studios in Kelowna, British Columbia. The song, “Marco Polo”, was a runner-up in both the Roots/Folk and Country categories at the 2016 YYC Music Awards in Calgary. In 2018, Jacob Rose performed at the Big Rock Barn Burner in Calgary Alberta and supported Leeroy Stagger and Sam Roberts Band.
Jacob released his sophomore EP, Can’t Hold It All on June 12, 2020. Featuring heavier folk undertones, and moving between dissonance and groove, this EP asserts that harmony is still possible. Jacob gratefully acknowledges the support of FACTOR and the government of Canada in bringing this project to fruition. #FACTORFunded
