Music Duo in Southwest Florida

When James Badger and Sarah Rose met in the spring of 2016, their mutual love of music was the catalyst that propelled their blossoming relationship into what is now known as “Badger and Rose”. With a background in creative writing, music, and communications, James’ natural gift of prose produced original songs that came to life when he and Sarah began building intricate harmonies together. A degree in Vocal Performance, with a concentration in Opera, Sarah’s resume includes stints with Central Florida Lyric Opera, Intimate Opera of Indianapolis, Opera Naples, and Gulfshore Opera, and yet a deep appreciation of folk, indie, and acoustic music is clear in the duo’s original work, which they often compose together, influenced by musicians in the gene. Both teach music, voice, and guitar at Gulf Coast Charter Academy South, and feel fortunate to share what they love to do with audiences in Southwest Florida.
