Nickel&Rose is a powerful Duo from Milwaukee, Wisconsin playing a unique style of Folk that blends Blues, Jazz, Soul, Americana, Swing, and African music. Carl Nichols (Guitar) and Johanna Rose (Upright bass) bring their soulful voices and diverse musical backgrounds together to captivate audiences around the world, taking listeners from a Griot Ceremony in Senegal to a basement punk show in Portland, all while retaining the true spirit of American Folk Music.
It wasn’t long after Johanna and Carl meet in the summer of 2016 that Nickel&Rose was formed. The duo's shared love for music, and adventure took them to Europe where they successfully toured for four months and recorded their EP, “Oh Sweet Love." Traveling mostly by train, Nickel&Rose spent the winter carrying an upright bass across seven countries, playing shows, writing music and making friends along the way. Nickel&Rose continue to travel, playing music wherever they are, and have plans of recording a full length album soon.
