Acquaint yourself with California and New York-based composer, producer, singer, and musician ROOS.
The elusive artist is gearing up to release Standards Volume 1, the first release of a three-part “song cycle exploring the aftermath of failure, from resistance to transcendence. Each song illustrates a moment in the ongoing cycle that inevitably results from effort and ambition.”
The 4-track release features a host of talented musicians including Sam Gendel, Andrew Aged (Inc No World), Eliza Callahan (Jack and Eliza, Purr), Jimmy MacBride (Herbie Hancock) among many others.
With a sound that does not solely fit into one genre, stylistically, ROOS create a collage of musical voices and styles, including gospel, country, shoegaze, r&b, jazz, soft rock, torch songs, trap music, contemporary classical, bossa nova, and free improvisation. It’s classic pop songwriting reaching toward experimentation.
We’re delighted to be bringing you the premiere of ‘Shame Shame’ featuring Eliza Callahan and Sam Gendel.
