Biography

Rosa Sky is authentic music. Passionate acoustic music – somewhere between folk, blues, country and pop. Guess you can call it Americana. Singer/songwriter Nicole Schouten and guitarist/songwriter Ben Jasink started Rosa Sky in 2007, creating their songs at home at the kitchen table. Both have been musicians for years and originally played in several bands in the punk and rock-scene. Soon more musicians joined Rosa Sky: Henk Mellema (acoustic bass) and Rene Holthuis (acoustic guitar and lapsteel). Nicole is a singer/performer and had a career in Storytelling. We have been recording and working together with producer and singer/songwriter Martin van de Vrugt in his studio. For the CD - Sweet Surrender – we also worked together with our friends Albert Bartelds (acoustic guitar and standing bass) and drummer Ben van de Bunt . A beautiful version of the song Sweet Surrender has been recorded with the Senegalese singer/songwriter Thierno Barry.
Rosa Sky is: Nicole Schouten:vocals, Ben Jasink:acoustic guitar, Henk Mellema:acoustic bass, René Holthuis:acoustic guitar/lapsteel. Rosa Sky is sometimes featering Jan Willen ten Brinke on drums&percussion.

Lyrics

All Around Us

Written By: Schouten

All around us
Time is way ahead of us again. And I can only turn around, turn around to see what’s unchangeable to me.
Like an oyster in a shell, we know nothing of the sea. Big blue infinity all around you and me. Eyes closed fixes we fix our dreams. Thinking it is heaven. Thinking it is hell. That’s unchangeable to me.
All around us.
At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless, neither from nor towards. At the still point – there the dance is.
All around us.
