ROE is 19-year-old grumpy multi-instrumentalist from Derry (Ireland), Roisin Donald. Laying down her unique brand of self-styled “Grumpy Electro-Pop”, she has been blazing a trail for young female indie artists across Ireland, UK, Europe and beyond.
With performances at The Great Escape, Reeperbahn, M for Montreal, Other Voices, Live at Leeds, Eurosonic, Primavera and NH7 (India) as well as a UK and German tour 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 2017, two nominations for the 2018 Northern Ireland Music Prize (Best Single and Best Emerging Artist), and an invitation from Gary Lightbody himself to support Snow Patrol on their UK arena tour in January of 2019, ROE is carving out her own path, on her terms.
