Lara Rosseel was born on the Belgian coast in Veurne on September 16, 1985. She grew up with the guitar, cello and percussion and obtained a bachelor's degree in classical guitar, with cello as a second instrument at the Lemmens Instituut in Leuven. A few years later she graduated as 'Master bass, Jazz and Light music' with Nicolas Thys (Taxi Wars, Chris Defoort, ..) and Jos Machtel (BJO). She spent the last year of her studies in Göteborg (Sweden) with double bass virtuoso Anders Jormin (Bobo Stenson trio ECM).

This wealth of inspiration can be heard in the marvelous compositions of her own band.
