Despite her youth, 2017 has been an exciting year for the 18 year old artist. Kicking off with the release of ‘Fake ur Death’; featured on Tom Robinson’s weekly mixtape on BBC Radio 6, selected as ‘Track of the Day’ by BBC Across the Line (calling it “Emotive, engaging and just a little dangerous”, as well as being lauded by Jim Carroll of the Irish Times as a “talent on the rise”.
Since then, ROE has gone on to become the voice of the ‘Visit Derry’ tourism campaign, with her music being featured in an international TV advert to promote the city. ‘Fake ur Death’ was recently used as the music bed for part of Harp’s ‘Pure Here’ campaign and ‘Cheek, Boy’ was on an episode of ITV’s ‘The Only Way is Essex’.
With performances at Output (Belfast) and The Great Escape music showcase (Brighton) already under her belt, ROE has been moving from strength to strength with increasing momentum. Selected as one of 21 acts from around the UK (the only Northern Irish artist) to perform on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury, the future looks incredibly bright for ROE.
