"Brimming with optimism, youthful exuberance and creative energy...." - The Huffington Post
Based in Music City, Nashville, TN, Roanoke is a 5 piece that bridges a gap between Alternative and Americana/Folk by writing palatable & melodic songs under a blanket of roots instrumentation, electric guitars, multi-part harmonies and the instantly-recognizable vocals of principle lead singers Taylor Dupuis and Joey Beesley. Transitioning to a full-time touring entity in 2018, Roanoke's 2017 touring resume includes appearances at MerleFest, SunFest and Master Musicians Festival, while also being sought for private, corporate functions for LinkedIn and Opryland Resort — all of which came as a surprise in the band's inbox. Artistically, Roanoke's praise has been sung by Huffington Post and Spotify, the latter of which includes four Roanoke originals, "Silent Films," "Tennessee Stone," "Jordan" and "The Light," on its OFFICIAL playlists, "Southern Gothic," "Rustic Romance," "Fresh Folk," "Pulse of Americana," and "Seize The Day!" respectively. New EP, distributed by Tone Tree, was released in summer 2018.
