Roman Clarke is frighteningly versatile – equally comfortable behind the kit, at the piano, in front of a microphone, or in the producer’s chair. His new self-produced full-length album, “SCORCHER”, is evidence of this. His first real step into the world as a solo artist marking a turning point as he sets his sights firmly on his own path. With the exception of a few choice string parts, Roman wrote every lyric, played every instrument, and sang every vocal. His prolific catalogue is a reflection of his hardworking prairie roots, but the groove that comes through in his music are borrowing from influences far wider than his rural Manitoban upbringing would hint at. Blurring the lines between pop and r’n’b he uses his unique voice and style to tell honest stories juxtaposed over tracks that snap your head back with thick beats and uplifting synth arrangements.
