The Rooftop Collective is quickly becoming one of the most highly anticipated bands in the local music scene.
Revolving around lead-singer and songwriter Edward Waaka, the crew of guitarists, brass players, keyboardists and drummers come together to create a sound that is truly unique.
While the group has only been together for a matter of months, with each performance their momentum grows, and recently they have been receiving some positive feedback from industry figures and artists alike.
With an organic sound that is derived from a wide range of genres including soul, funk, reggae and dub, the group also strongly focus on identifying and reflecting Aotearoa’s landscape.
Technically and aesthetically pleasing, their music encompasses the subtle complexities, which make it sophisticated, intelligent and emotive, helping the group to connect with their audience on many different levels.
The band’s explosive ability to shift the atmosphere throughout a set displays their collective musicianship and on stage chemistry.
With more shows lined up for the summer, the group are setting their sights on a nationwide tour to promote their new and infectious brand of locally produced music.
