Grid City Magazine reflects that, “his work has always carried with it a definitive experimental element that’s helped keep it ever so unclassifiable, yet familiar and undeniably something all his own. A fan of low-fi sounds, Steel’s music has always maintained a certain degree of quirk...” CBC radio recently noted that his presence on the regional music scene has been sorely missed!

with guest CARLENE
A native of Prince Edward Island, Rose Cousins lives in Halifax. She deeply values being part of multiple music communities, and is constantly fueled by collaboration. Cousins’ 2012 album "We Have Made A Spark" celebrated her Boston community and featured a cast of musicians Cousins had known and played music with for a decade. It won a JUNO Award, 3 East Coast Music Awards, a Canadian Folk Music Award, was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize, and made picks/best of lists in USA Today, NPR Music and Oprah Magazine. Her music has found its way into several TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy.
CARLENE is a rising folk-musician stationed on the lonely shores of Grand Manan Island, NB. A defiant recluse out of necessity more so than choice, her milling thoughts are transformed into melancholic tunes of observation, tragedy and self-reflection.
