Biography

Rosemarie Hurst was born in Sussex, England and came to Canada when she was 8. Her interest in the poetry and life of Canadian poet E. Pauline Johnson greatly influenced her own writing and way of looking at the world. Other notable writers that inspired her were Kahlil Gibran, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Phil Ochs, John Prine, Gordon Lightfoot, Lao Tse, Daniel Lanois, Stephen Fearing, John Bottomley and Jann Arden, amongst many others.

Rosemarie came to Vancouver in November 1997 from Ancaster, near Hamilton, Ontario. She sang Christmas carols with a group for seniors in the West End of Vancouver. Then with a theatre group, and her huge puppet Emily, she sang for children at the local community centre’s Community Days.

Her big break came with the BC Festival of the Arts call for entry for singer/songwriter’s. One of the songs she sent them was ‘Eyes of the Angels’. She was one of 14 applicants out of 100 chosen to perform her own music, this time, at the Herald Street Theatre in Victoria, B.C. in front of 250 people. She was honoured to have shared the stage with the likes of Stephen Fearing and Colleen Eccleston.

Rosemarie is an avid photographer who has her sold many of her photos and photo art cards. Two of them are of E. Pauline Johnson’s cairn, Stanley Park, Vancouver and are on display at Pauline’s birthplace, Chiefswood Museum, Ohsweken, Ontario.

All the songs on her debut CD ‘Eyes of the Angels’, except Day Dawn, were written by Rosemarie. She accompanies herself on guitar, shakers, and harmonies. She also produced the CD and took all the nature photos.

Her writing style is poetical lyricism. It is very romantic, spiritual, soft and intimate. It’s an unadorned acoustic record, not a hook-driven pop formula. It’s passionate and refreshingly honest. She’s had some great feedback about her CD so far.

‘Faded Away’ has a bit of a beat; ‘I’m No Angel’ rocks up a little; ‘Je T’aime’ is a waltz timing; ‘Words’ has a flamenco style rhythm. The rest are romantic, spiritual, finger-picking style ballads.

This is a headphone's type CD, so dim down the lights, light some candles, put your feet up, put on your headphones and enjoy.
