Discovering Stillness in Crisis

Singer-songwriter Rosa Tu shares her music and explores the profound lessons that can emerge from crisis when we learn to sit still and truly be with ourselves.  Recorded in November of 2018.     ABOUT THE GUEST:  ROSA TU
  • A multi-cultural New York-based singer/songwriter with a penchant for vocal harmony, Rosa writes to open up windows into the unconscious and bring listeners into themselves. While people stay home, searching for meaning in the mess of social media, news, and advertisements, Rosa writes stories of psychological and emotional freedom where no one is buying or selling anything.
  • Combining elements of folk, pop, and classical music, Rosa’s songs lean heavily towards the dark, painful sides of human experience. She believes exploring these parts of ourselves is a way to deep and unconditional love. She sees the kind of beauty she hopes to express in the work of poets and artists like Mary Oliver, Frida Kahlo, and Joan Baez. What emerges are introspective songs based on personal experience, expressing timeless, universal stories.
  • Rosa released her first album ‘In Winter’s Shade’ in 2013, followed by a 5-track album 'Glass House' in 2015. In 2016 she moved to Berlin to write and perform with her cousin as the acoustic duo Mother’s Favorite Daughter. Rosa’s music video “Davy and the Priest” was an official selection for Roma Cinema Doc 2020 in the experimental film category. Rosa’s single and animated short film 'The Swamp' comes out April 17th, followed by her full album 'Drink All The Wine,' available in August, 2020. She is represented by the label/collective The Famous Gold Watch.
