Rose Cousins

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 (Outside Music). “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.”

Cousins enlisted Grammy Award winning producer Joe Henry for the recording of Natural Conclusion. She and Henry each gathered trusted colleagues and met in Toronto. They were joined in studio by engineer Ryan Freeland, drummer Jay Bellerose, bassist David Pitch, pianist Aaron Davis, and guitar player Gord Tough. Also lending their talents to the recording were touring mates Asa Brosius), and Zachariah Hickman. Kinley Dowling added strings in the studio and joined the choir that also included Hickman and longtime friends Jill Barber, Caroline Brookes, and Miranda Mullholland.
