Rose and the Bass

Rosan Asmussen AKA ‘Rose and the Bass’ is a young up and coming bass artist from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 

Asmussen was active in New York as a bassist for the American pop-rock band Blac Rabbit, toured with Laura Newman in her live show ‘Abracadabra’ through Florida, collaborated with artists like Abbey Hoes, and worked with The Voice winner Iris Kroes. Asmussen was recognized as a local talent by Alain Clark and launched her YouTube platform ‘Rosans BassWorld’ in early 2020, securing endorsements from Sandberg Guitars and Eich Amplifications.

She grew up in a small village in Friesland before embarking on her musical adventure in Amsterdam. For her debut album, she took bold steps, strapped on her bass guitar, and boarded a plane to Mozambique. There, she delved into African life and rhythms deeply. In 2017 she released her debut album ‘An African Tale’; an intriguing blend of 1970s disco-funk, lounge jazz, and Chopi chants and patterns. Asmussen sings in her own language; Rosan’s. In that small, fragile blonde from Amsterdam, seems to be something big and incredibly groovy – Bass Magazine, Low End Nation, No Treble, De Bassist
