SolaRose

From his humble beginnings experimenting with a 4-track recorder at the tender age of 19, Sola Rosa frontman Andrew Spraggon has gone on to cultivate over 15 years of rich, well-crafted melodic beats. Weaving and infusing a rotating mix of hip-hop, jazz, reggae, latin, neo-soul and funk, before topping it with an icing of assorted and diverse vocalists, Sola Rosa have released six critically acclaimed long players to date. The most recent being 2014’s Magnetics, a soulful dreamscape of sound and new direction for Sola Rosa and the winner of ‘Best Soul & R&B’ award in the heralded iTunes ‘Best of 2014’, and more recently picking up a nomination for ‘Best Electronica’ in the prestigious upcoming Vodafone NZ Music. Magnetics showcases an eclectic assortment of fresh vocalists from across the globe: Kevin Mark Trail (UK), Sharlene Hector (UK), Jordan Rakei (AUS), Georgia Anne Muldrow (US), Tawiah (UK), Noah Slee (AUS) and Oliver Daysoul (UK).
