Rookes is known for her charismatic and commanding stage presence, and her fearless exploration of queer-female identity with influences from KD Lang’s androgynous prowess, and Kimbra for her powerful vocal style, as well as experimental, technological approach.
Following the overwhelmingly positive response to her debut EP, Rookes is currently preparing for her 2019 releases and tour. With eight years’ live experience under her belt, Rookes aims to bring the full force of her multi-instrumental skills, compelling song-writing and powerful voice to every live performance.
The upcoming EP ‘Liminal’ tells the story of being between relationships, of existing in a space between two states, of leaving a relationship, and starting a new one. The four songs serve together as a 3 year chronicle encapsulating the emotionally charged inbetweens spaces rarely written about in relationships.
Rookes’ female-led, female-empowering approach to current projects is reflected in this record, which she joins forces with award-winning mastering engineer Katie Tavini to complete it’s final quality anthem-pop sound.
