Genre: Jazz

With a 21st century freshness, past any concept of vogue, or any linear genre lines, Norwegian band ROHEY deliver powerful and energetic nu-soul music that bristles with authenticity, that grooves with the best funk, that has deep soul roots while keeping an eye on the broad expanse of a very promising future. Lead vocalist Rohey Taalah brings all the emotional complexity you would expect of a classic jazz or soul singer being compared to giants as Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse and Nai Palm (Hiatus Kaiyote).

With the release of “A Million Things” on Jazzland Recordings in early 2017, their path can be expected to take them ever further: music this good can’t be kept secret for long. “A Million Things” is a sincere conviction and joyful an artful expression without making things unnecessarily difficult for the audience. This has been borne out by the their nomination for ‘Best Single’ at the Scandinavian Soul Awards in 2015. The album also gained unanimous praise from radio legends Gilles Peterson and Jamie Cullum of BBC Radio.
