Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Born: July 19, 1956    

Stuart Rosh (born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) is a songwriter and singer who lives in San Francisco. Over the years he’s lived in Italy, Israel and throughout the US. The child of Polish/Ukrainian immigrants and Holocaust survivors, Stuart grew up listening to and performing Yiddish (his first language), Russian and religious music. From the age of three until about twelve, he was obsessed with top 40 pop. Then he heard Muddy Waters and Miles Davis, and his taste moved from pop into the world of jazz, blues, and cabaret.

A former geophysics professor, Stuart Rosh put out three CDs this past decade, one solo and two with his band, The Geniuses. The first two, Accept No Imitations (2004) and Hummingbirds in Fight (2005), had a rootsy style heavily influenced by Hank Williams and Muddy Waters. The third, American Vernacular (2007) was an eclectic blend of what Stuart calls American Mutt Music, containing cabaret, blues, jazz and rock tunes. His albums have received critical praise in a wide number of indy oriented publications such as Indie-Music.com, ObscureSound.com, FreightTrainBoogie.com as well as a “Critic’s Pick” from the Cincinnati CityBeat and a “Choice Cut” award from the Village Voice....

Walter Kolosky, Jazz.com: It took about 10 seconds to realize that Rosh is a talented lyricist. Each fun tale is told in a succinct and entertaining flow. This is all about showmanship - a concept many times forgotten these days. I don't see how it is possible to not like this CD (Fundamental).

Global Rhythm Magazine: Performed with freshness, humor and verve. So vivid that you can almost hear the late-night clink of ice cubes.

Paul Freeman, Bay Area News Group: With Rosh's canny vocals and clever lyrics, backed by impressive instrumentation, “Fundamental” is fabulously funky fun.

Chris Handyside, Real Detroit Weekly: This guy has mega-chops: a beguiling cross-breeding cemented by lyrics that recall Cohen and Zevon.

Nate Seltenrich, East Bay Express: Charming tales about decaffeinated coffee, golf course foibles, five-dollar shoes, picking up chicks at the library, and more - all set to peppy, horn- laden cabaret grounded in blues and '40s and '50s vocal jazz - make Stuart Rosh's fourth album an unexpected and undeniable treat...
