Multi-instrumentalist Roselien is best described as a force to be reckoned with. Fusing R&B, neo-soul, electronic, nu-jazz and funk to create her signature soundscape, ‘Give Me A Break’ is taken from her forthcoming EP ‘Seventh Ascension”. Receiving praise from the likes of Worldwide FM, Last Day Deaf and Soho Radio to name a few, Roselien has also opened for artists such as Meshell Ndegeocello, Gregory Porter, The Jones Girls, Bilal and Gabriel Garzon Montano. Playing shows at iconic venues such as The Jazz Cafe, Rich Mix and The Lexington to name a few, this songwriter is destined for a successful career on stage.
Sharing her thoughts on the message of the iconic new single, Roselien explains, “Give Me A Break is about realising how high the price can be for chasing your dream”.
“Give Me A Break” is an adventurous, groove-infused number with a strong neo-soul persona. Energetic and empowering all under one roof, the exceptional new release specialises in leaving listeners wanting more. Bound to leave your feet tapping from the very first note, ‘Give Me A Break’ continues to bring something new to the table with each listen.
Explaining how she finds her inspiration, Roselien shares “,I get my inspiration from forward thinking musicians and producers such as George Duke, Quincy Jones, Frank Ocean, Esperanza Spalding, Erykah Badu, Moacir Santos and Johnny Guitar Watson to name a few. I get inspired by interactions with people, by nature, by reading, by art, by listening to music and studying it – I find it all inspiring”. Created using a DX27 Yamaha synthesiser and a JX3P Roland synthesizer, Ableton and drum samples of Dr Dre and Timbaland, the forthcoming EP is a diverse release that reflects Roselien’s time in London, after moving from Brussels to pursue a career in music. Her emotions and struggles are expressed in the four songs, which were not only self-produced, but Roselien also played every instrument you can hear on the EP.
Roselien’s soulful new release ‘Give Me A Break’ is out worldwide August 27th.
