Rosier pushes further the exploration of alloys between Quebec folk and the mix of indie, jazzy, pop, bluegrass and contemporary styles. They immerse us in their universe through original compositions, sophisticated arrangements, harmonic progressions and reinvented traditions. The bilingual band injects exuberant colour into the folk traditions of Canada, Quebec and Appalachian heritage, taking the roots that they have grown from and spinning their foundations into a movement. The result is mature, well-controlled music filled with emotion and a surprising freshness relevant in today’s shifting climates.

Formed in 2009, the group has been together since they were kids and inherited a musical proclivity from their folk musician parents. The quintet has performed in major cities and small towns in Canada, the US, Europe, the UK and Australia, and Africa, amassing impressive international experience. Incorporating nostalgia with their original compositions they have created a layered sound that connects generations through origin and craft. This summer, the band celebrates their tenth year together, announcing a rename and releasing a self-titled EP release reflective of the band's new identity.
