Brooklyn R&B Virtuosos The Rooks Releases Their Debut LP Bend on Monday November 19, 2018.
LISTEN to New Single “Oh My” Below!
With Bend, The Rooks have made not only a catchy 9-song debut album, but also a powerful statement about the what the finest R&B should be: a storied tradition that isn’t afraid to play with 21st century toys like drum machines and synthesizers.
The Rooks deal in that which is fleeting but no less present and important: live music played by real musicians, true love, and real moments experienced by real people. The record was produced by Grammy Award-winner Yaron Fuchs (Herbie Hancock, Soulive) and Grammy Award-winning engineer Neil Dorfman (Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Sting), along with the power trio rhythm section of Steve Wolf (Beyoncé, Alicia Keys), Bobby Sparks (Snarky Puppy, St. Vincent), and Yossi Fine (David Bowie, Meshell Ndegeocello). Recorded in upstate New York near Woodstock, The Rooks’ upcoming LP is full of organic R&B, combining old soul flavors with modern melodies and production.
