POSTPONED - Rosehardt
7pm doors • 8pm show
To all our supporters, fans, family, guests, friends;
We’ve decided to postpone tonight’s Rosehardt show at National Sawdust. It truly breaks our hearts to send this message, seeing as the last 8 weeks have been devoted to making this a very special night for every single one of you. However, given the current unpredictability of the situation involving COVID-19, we feel as though it is the most responsible decision we could make.
Like everyone, we’re deeply confused as to what’s the most rational state of mind amidst a situation like this. For a team like ours, which exists solely because of the support from our fans, the last thing we want to do is disappoint you. Ultimately, we felt uncomfortable making any one of you feel uncomfortable. We’d rather pause and come together to bring you this show’s experience in a less hectic & anxious time.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and are truly grateful for your understanding.
We will have a new date soon, and please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.
All the love,
The Rosehardt Team
“Songs in the Key of Solitude is album as catharsis.” —Village Voice
Self-produced R&B/hip-hop artist and actor Rosehardt is a spellbinding lyricist, equally capable of heartrending, emotionally precise verses and soaring, pleading hooks. Having garnered attention from Pitchfork, Pigeons & Planes, Village Voice, and more, Rosehardt’s songs are earnest self-portraits of a young black artist, rooted in gospel and black folk music. After a Broadway debut in Tony-nominated play Choir Boy and a leading role in highly-anticipated HBO series Betty, Rosehardt returns to music with a special night of brand new, unreleased songs, featuring a full live band, visual projections, and some extra special guests.
Caleb Eberhardt is Rosehardt – a self-produced R&B / hip hop artist from San Francisco, CA, currently residing in Brooklyn, NY.
Coping with the slow and painful loss of his father to Alzheimer’s while subsequently ending a longterm romantic relationship, Rosehardt weaves a harrowing, humble narrative on his debut LP, Songs in the Key of Solitude, through dynamic productions that bend genre borders at will. A spell-binding lyricist equally capable of visceral verses and soaring, pleading hooks, his progressive compositions reveal an emotional sophistication rarely found amongst contemporaries.
Rosehardt has been writing and producing music for upwards of 10 years, most prominently as one-half of Quincy Vidal, a New York-based hip hop / jazz group heralded for their live performances. Their 2016 release Chi’ren attracted critical acclaim from Billboard, Boiler Room, and Impose Magazine, and helped secure opening slots for Lion Babe, Gabriel Garzón- Montano, and Noname.
Rosehardt’s solo material offers an intimate exploration of his personal history. His music is rooted in gospel and black folk music, echoes of which coat his recent singles, “Fall Into You” and “Bad Song”, with a weathered rawness. Creating soul music for a generation burdened by the weight of history and a depressingly unchanged present, Rosehardt’s songs are earnest treatises on life in America as a young black artist navigating the throes of modernity.
“My audience is my therapist”, says Rosehardt. But the reverse is also true; while traveling with him, we travel within ourselves.”
