Five Roses came to be thanks to a chance encounter at a barbershop where Jade worked as a hairdresser and Zack had an appointment. As he sat on her chair getting coiffed, the usual salon small talk soon became something promising when they discovered they shared a passion for country music and Zack acknowledged that he wanted to start a duo project. After hearing her sing for the first time, he knew he'd found the voice he was looking for. It only took one jam session to know that there was instant chemistry that translated into a summer of songwriting.
Their first independently released single “Baby You Can Drive” reached the top 100 on the Canadian Country Chart in 2018 and the band played a jam packed showcase at Canadian Music Week in May 2018. The duo played several Country Music festivals over the summer and shared the stage with country stars such as Brett Kissel, Meghan Patrick and Dan Davidson. The band was also invited to appear at the prestigious Songwriter Series for the 2018 Canadian Country Music Awards week alongside top 5 Canadian Country hitmakers The Reklaws and Aaron Goodvin. Their debut EP was released in August of that same year. Inspired by acts such as Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town, their songs were soon added to the hottest playlists and have now gained close to 500 000 streams on Spotify. The band is now working on a second EP to be released in 2021.
