PRESENTED BY JULIA GOLEMBIOWSKI
Elder Roche grew up in Dublin, has travelled extensively and is currently based between Dublin and Berlin. His theatrical narratives and folk/roots sound are underscored by his projection of a rawness of experience through his ethereal piano playing and a powerful, haunting vocal ability.
In the three and a half years since his first album release, Elder has been invited to perform and tour with many of Ireland’s greatest musicians including Kila’s Rónán Ó Snodaigh, Mary Coughlan, Paddy Casey, Mundy and Damian Dempsey, and has also mesmerised audiences at intimate solo gigs around the country.
Here's What the Press Said:
Nobody Knows (2009), his first album, received audience and critical acclaim. What the press said
"Lazy comparisons with Tom Waits do him nothing more than a disservice. Elder Roche’s voice and wit hint at a creative spirit all his own" - 4 STARS The Irish Times
“Manly vocals and powerful storytelling songs bring to mind the genius of Leonard Cohen” - News of the World
“There is something very spiritual about Elder Roche’s songs” - Dan Hegarty, RTÉ 2FM
“Truly talented and truly stunning” - Phantom FM
