The Phoenix Rose - Launch the new album Friday, May 6th 2016
Good things come to those who wait! Fronted by composer & singer Jarvis Smith, The Phoenix Rose is a London based musical tsunami that celebrates the power of music to reach the entire human family with dynamic, uplifting themes & irresistible grooves. After nearly eight years of preparation, the band's self titled album will be released this month, and the buzz is palpable.
Struck by the band's Isle of Wight set, renowned producer Native Wayne Jobson (No Doubt, Toots & the Maytals, Gregory Isaacs) offered to produce the band’s first record. Jobson brought Junior Marvin (Bob Marley & The Wailers) and Patrixx Anthony (UB40) to record guitar and trumpet on the album. Throughout the album a frenetic and propulsive orchestration runs at the core, the vocal melodies soar above it all in spectacular fashion, tapping into those world influences that challenge and rewrite the rules of standard western music.
