NOW TAKING BOOKINGS FOR 2023
Rosie Tee forges an innovative, atmospheric blend of electronica, psych and avant-pop amongst the industrial backdrop of the UK's second city. Colourful imagery is at the centre of Tee’s lyrical writing, where crystalline vocals meander between dark, forceful beats and fragile melodic contours. Finding joy in the experimental, she crafts a synth-heavy sound via manipulated vocals, effects pedals, synths and glockenspiel.
Collaborating closely with her quartet, Tee tours across the UK with a line-up of offkilter synths (Piera Onacko), swarming bass (Dan Cippico) and textural drums (Kai Chareunsy). Together, they ebb and flow between digital and analogue worlds, most at home on the stage of intoxicating live performances, where they’ve supported artists like Stealing Sheep & Submotion Orchestra.
The quartet recorded at Abbey Road Studios and Tee's compositions for professional ensembles & orchestras have been comissioned and performed internationally. Nominated for Best Jazz Act by the Birmingham Music Awards, the composer/performer has received national airplay on BBC Radio 6 Music and has been described as “a rare idiosyncratic talent” by The Unsigned Guide.
In 2021, Tee’s latest EP "Earth, Embrace Me In" surfaced as a love letter for a dying planet - a collection of bittersweet songs praised as a "truly mind-altering release" by Earmilk for its ecological message. The follow-up remix EP aptly entitled "Re // Embrace" is out now, featuring re-works from Vanishing Twin, Wildforms, NikNak, Matters & Maya Yenn.
