With their infectious, feet-friendly grooves, soulful, storytelling vocals and sun-drenched vibes, The Rooftops set out to engage and inspire their audiences with meaningful and moving music. They have been delivering for nearly five years.
Since their highly-acclaimed debut at last year's Woodford Folk Festival, the band has been busy preparing for their third studio CD. They have enlisted soul legend, vocal coach and fellow Woodford favourite, Mr Percival, to produce the album, which will be recorded in Sydney in July.
They first met Percival in May 2009, backstage at The Planting Festival, and a few inspired conversations later, they were working together.. By the time he joined them on stage for their encore on New Years Eve at the biggest tent at Woodford, the whole band were singing backups – as was the crowd.
Well known in Brisbane from their four-year residency at The Bowery (voted best bar in Australia), The Rooftops are also regulars in the festival scene, having featured at the Brisbane Festival, Noosa Jazz Festival and Ipswich Festival, among others.
It is with great enthusiasm and expectation that they will be embarking on their first National tour to promote the first single from the album, Something So Familiar in October/November.
