Event description

Description

The music of Rollaway has been described as “floor-stomping blues” and “backwoods-choir elegance” (The Georgia Straight), and “dirty-southern-gothic-rock-country-folk” (Discorder Magazine). Hailing originally from Georgia, Rollaway’s bandleader Benton Roark has led the project across Canada and the States for over a decade, releasing no fewer than four records and forging a sound that combines ramshackle roots, Southern gothic poetry, and dark romanticism. While the band has been compared to classic acts like Dylan and The Band as well as younger ones like My Morning Jacket, Fleet Foxes, and Neko Case, Rollaway has made an independent name in the genre with the “poetry” and “complexity of Roark’s lyrics” (Maverick Magazine) and “topnotch” ensemble playing (The Georgia Straight). The latest record featuring Roark’s work with members of Rollaway, 2016’s Deep in the Pocket, Still No Change, has been featured twice on CBC’s North by Northwest and was named CD of the Week by The Vancouver Sun, which described it as “heartfelt”, “magisterial”, and possessing “a relaxed funkiness”.
