Canadian Jacob Rose has performed all across Canada, as well as in Thailand, Catalonia Spain and Austria. Based out of Calgary AB, and St. Stephen NB, this singer-songwriter draws inspiration from many genres, including rock, hip-hop, folk and pop.
He's had over a decade of songwriting and performance experience from church functions and family gatherings, to open mic nights, folk clubs, house concerts and festivals. With every show, Jacob learns a little bit more and, like a fine wine, he gets better with age. This multi-instrumentalist plays the acoustic guitar, bass, ukulele, piano, percussion; and if you don't think too hard he can fake his way around a drum kit.
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 YYCMusic Awards in Calgary. In 2016, Rose released The Bare Bone Sessions, a home studio project that almost burned a house down, and a single "Staring at the Light": a reflective song about appreciating the people and environment that surrounds you.
Compared to the likes of Mumford & Sons, Jack Johnson and the Barenaked Ladies, Jacob Rose has carved out a unique space for his distinct lyrics and acoustic sound. With a hopeful melancholy, he explores themes of the Everyday, Philosophy and Empathy, and weaves them into a contemplative auditory garment.
Jacob Rose has supportedvmany folk artists across Canada including Andrew Smith, Hayden Wiebe, Abby Pond, Tanner James, Jesse Shire of Rosalind, Joel Strauss, Zachari Smith and more.
After taking a two-year hiatus in 2016 and pursuing a university degree, Jacob Rose is back in the music scene. In September 2018, Rose performed at the Big Rock Barn Burner concert featuring Leeroy Stagger and the iconic Sam Roberts Band.
