Bergamot Rose

Nouveau Alternative & French Fusion

A sound palette of world rhythms infused with a French twist.  Inspired by early '90's new wave,  Bergamot Rose's songs are composed of tart lyrics balanced by vibrant rhythms and instrumentation.

The group's upcoming album "Songs of Truth" explores the intense emotional landscape of relationships, finding oneself and uncovering the truth.  Why Bergamot Rose?  Bergamot protects the heart - the Rose - in all of us, while radiating sunshine, joy and beauty.  

In addition to the group's nouveau alternative vibe, Bergamot Rose is acclaimed for their performance of French Fusion and world jazz with vocals in French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and English.  The group has been honored to perform for The French Ambassador, The French Embassy, The Canadian Delegation to OAS and many in the diplomatic community.

Bergamot Rose is based in the DC Metro area and is available for gigs locally and across the globe.  



Bergamot Rose reflects a musical archeology that began in years of classical training, expanded into world jazz, and culminated in kaleidoscope of Nouveau Alternative sounds reminiscent of late 80's new wave.  The group is founded by pianist, songwriter and vocalist Jennifer (Scott) Bergamot-Rose and Ethan Foote bass and arranger accompanied by guitar, strings and percussion.

The group's songwriter, "Jennifer (Scott) Bergamot-Rose , is a free spirit that has maintained a strict discipline to the arts."  Top-40 Charts.  Well known for her French vocals, Jennifer has been sought after to perform by The French Ambassador, The French Embassy, Canada Council of the Arts and The Organization of American States.   At the same time, the rather playful side of this fascinating talent has found her performing on stage at Bushwick’s Public House and Freddy’s Back Bar, both in Brooklyn New York.   In 2016, “Jennifer [Bergamot-Rose] [broke] new ground with her “Le temps de l’amour” release. CMJ, one of the jazz industry’s most trusted names in chart reporting, share[d] that the Washington DC based artist debut[ed] at number 37."   Read from article by  – Top 40 Charts.   She is excited to present bitter sweet lyrics set to vibrant beats.
