The Resonant Rogues are the songwriting soul child of partners Sparrow and Keith Smith. With influences ranging from gypsy swing to early New Orleans jazz, and from Appalachian old-time to eastern European folk music, they take their favorite flavors and blend them into a delicious, danceable dish. The Resonant Rogues have toured relentlessly during their first 4 years of existence, covering the United States, Canada, and Europe. Their newest record, Hands in the Dirt, is out May 12th.
“Their intense cohesion is so intertwined that it feels like they’re playing with one pair of hands. Harmonies seem to pour from one set of lungs… Onstage, the fluency they wield for their craft (or, I should say “crafts”) is impressive, in that understated kind of “come close and listen up,” kind of way.” -No Depression
“Young North Carolina group craft theatrical pop thrills from a heady mix of old-time, Balkan and Hot Club Influences. Guaranteed festival club floor-fillers!” -fRoots Magazine
“With plenty here to appeal to a variety of folk based musical tastes while still maintaining core band identity, it bodes well for a very promising future. “-Folk Radio UK
