With a plethora of diverse influences, the Resonant Rogues write songs that transcend genres, and capture universal melodies and emotions. Gypsy jazz and traditional eastern european music blend seamlessly with american folk traditions like old-time, blues, and vintage hot jazz. Keith and Sparrow’s poignant lyrics and vocal harmonies give a new relevance to old stylizations. Their music has found it’s way into many different kinds of venues- from rowdy bars to quiet listening rooms, from belly dance conventions to circus variety shows, from the local DIY space to the local jazz club, the Resonant Rogues thrive wherever they are given the opportunity.
After spending the winter in New Orleans, soaking up the inspiration of that magical city, the Resonant Rogues have recorded two new EP’s focusing on two of their biggest influences. One album, entitled “Swing set” is a mixture of original and traditional jazz tunes. The other, “Go East, Young Band” draws from around the balkan region of south east Europe, with songs from Greece, Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Turkey, as well as a traditional klezmer tune and an original instrumental. They will be available online in mid-April.
The Resonant Rogues will be touring extensively this spring and summer, heading out to Colorado in April and then up the east coast all the way to Montreal in late May.
