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. The music of Nickel&Rose (Carl Nichols-Guitar, Johanna Rose-Upright bass) has become a travelogue 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. Imagine Peggy Lee and Ali Farka Toure at a Bluegrass jam. Better yet, experience them live. With tours of seven countries under their belt, expect to see them in a town near you, bringing their diverse musical backgrounds together to create a new style of American music.
Nickel&Rose performed at a corporate event for us this past week. They were great to work with. The day of the event they were very punctual and they sounded great. We loved their music! We received many compliments from the attendees.

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.
