Biography

(1989 – present)

Formed in 1989, Rooke’s music is an original blend of rock and folk harmonies, with a mature sensibility in the structure and content of the lyrics. While some songs are simply fun or frivolous, there are deeper undercurrents of love, relationships and passion that run through many of the lyrics. Their live shows are energetic without being frenzied, with a lot of audience interaction and a focus on shifting the spotlight onto different members of the band at different times. The style of the music is fluid around a common core.

Most of the members of the band switch instruments throughout the set, each bringing their own style of play and technique on the different instruments to the overall sound. This provides variation in the texture of the music without changing the essential weave. With 4 different singers, different songs are given different styles by the choice of lead singer and the complex harmonies that have evolved throughout the life of the band. Sometimes a different person will sing lead on a song normally sung by another member of the band in order to shake things up a bit, and provide a new dimension or perspective on the melody and lyrics.
