Absinthe Rose is a Boston based band consisting of singer songwriter Kimbo Rose on acoustic guitar and vocals and a core rhythm section of well-seasoned Portland based musicians. The band mixes different styles of music into their own blend of Folk with a strong DIY ethic and both personal and political subject matter! Absinthe Rose is the musical brainchild of singer songwriter Kimbo Rose and was originally formed in 2008 as a solo acoustic project based out of the Medford and Ashland Oregon area. Sometimes accompanied by friends and fellow musicians Chari on Washboard, Ash on Violin, and Leah on Saw, Kimbo began performing regularly throughout the Southern Oregon for the next year or so before relocating to Boston in the spring of 2009! Soon after moving she self-released her debut CD entitled “Digging Ditches & Escaping Holes” on her newly formed DIY as it gets record label called SCREECH OWL RECORDS. This was a ten-track solo acoustic album of material she had been playing for years in Oregon and recorded in Boston soon after the move. In the spring of 2010 Kimbo Rose partnered up with Bill on Bass, Josh on Banjo, Nick on Electric Guitar and Rich on Drums and the band as you know it today was born!
Absinthe Rose recorded their debut EP entitled “Consistency Through Skepticism And Awareness” in 2010 and began playing out around the Boston area! Since then they have toured the US and played countless local shows. In the winter of 2012 they recorded their brand new full-length album entitled “The More That We Learn, The More We Learn That We’re Wrong” which was released in the spring of 2013! They have since gone on to release the new debut album “Black Earth” which was released on Screech Owl and Riotska Records.
The rest is history yet to be written!
