New Music: ROE

Rising Derry artist ROE creates a sound that is not quite like any other. Finely balancing essences of vulnerability with inner strength, this talent uses gentle vocals to deliver songs that carry sharp lyricism over emotive melodies.

On new single ‘A Temporary Thing’, ROE touches on the sensitive topic of mourning:

“I don’t think you ever really know what to say to console someone who’s grieving. I don’t think there are any magic words out there that can take that kind of pain away. I wrote ‘A Temporary Thing’ for my mum when my granny passed on, when I realised that the most helpful way to comfort someone is to just let them feel how they need to and be there for when they need you.”

To date, ROE has achieved support from the likes of BBC Introducing, Radio 1 and Radio 6 Music, while also winning an award with the Northern Ireland Music Prize and is a recipient of the PRS Foundation Momentum Fund.
