First and foremost, Rosalind is a cat.
Secondarily, and more relevantly, Rosalind is a Calgary-based indie-folk band.
Formed in early 2015 by Jesse Shire, Amanda Rishaug, and Mike Goossen after a spirited jam in the early hours of the new year, the trio quickly found a collective voice and before long expanded to include bass, drums, electric guitar, cello, violin, and as many other instruments and members as they could acquire to become a bona-fide folk orchestra.
Harmonies steeped in old-time folk, melodies with a marinade of soul; songs to bring you up, bring you down, and meet you in the middle, wherever that middle might be.
Rosalind's debut EP, 'The EP' is available now on CD and download here!
