Hidden Gem #46: Rohey – A Million Things

RoheyDebut album from forward-thinking Norwegian soul group Rohey, which is being championed by BBC Radio 2’s Jamie Cullum.

Just three years prior to this recording, by lucky coincidence they all started in the same class at the music conservatory in Trondheim. They adopted the name of their singer, Rohey, after realizing the name means “My soul” in Arabic.

Even though they named the group “Rohey“, they consider themselves a band – consisting of four contributors that together create the total of the album.

This mix of people, with a wide range of abilities and stories, formed Ivan Blomqvist’s compositions into something new, leading us to choose the title for this album: “A Million Things”. The music has clear roots, but also stretches towards something fresh and unexplored. And it’s inside this explorative process we want ourselves and this album to be, constantly challenging and renewing what we already know.
