Roanoke seamlessly blend a 70s/80s aesthetic with modern sensibility by delving into a mystic rock core. For 8 years, these elements have persisted in their music, evolving as the band has risen through the ranks of the independent rock scene. Mysticism is a primary component to the band’s foundation and not only in their lyrical themes – the band’s live shows bring their spirituality and mysticism all to fruition. Roanoke has grown into a road-tested outfit, retaining an affinity for raising energy and rich vocal harmony. Their live shows have won over audiences since the band first started touring 6 years ago.
Roanoke is fronted by Taylor Dupuis (vocals/acoustic/songwriter) and Joey Beesley (vocals/electric guitar/songwriter). Richard Bennett is on bass, and B.L. Reed on electric guitar. On their latest project, the band teamed up with producers Richard Bennett and Kevin Robinson in Muscle Shoals.
“Selene” is the band’s latest single. The 7” vinyl will be available for pre-order, backed with “Juna”.
