for electric violinist Roswitha’s DESTINY album…

by Jane Lambert, Modern Mystery Blog, CLICK HERE to read all. “…DESTINY, has been critically acclaimed and has garnered comparisons to the likes of Sia, Sade, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Björk, Florence and the Machine, Les Nubians, Stevie Nicks among others… Roswitha mixes gorgeous violin playing alongside her sultry vocals. With an infectious blend of jazz, classical, R&B, hip hop, rock and pop, Roswitha creates music that appeals to the masses, which transcends to the stage flawlessly.”

by G.W.Hill, Music Street Journal, CLICK HERE to read all! “I’ve put this album under “progressive rock.”…“art rock,”… This is great music that features a lot of violin and very complex compositions and arrangements. There’s a real focus on R&B and soul music, but plenty of other things, most notably world music … Personally, I’d say it falls closest to Bjork… quite an intriguing album … vocals on this cut make me think of Stevie Nicks quite a bit… pure style.”

Matthew Forss, Inside World Music, CLICK HERE to read all! “…Roswitha dazzles crowds with genre-bending compositions with mixed rock, funk, classical, new age, world fusion, and experimental-folk explosions of sonic beauty….vocally congruent with Adele, Leigh Nash and Katie Melua… Roswitha is an innovative musician that showcases fourteen unique musical concoctions that are almost indefinable. Nothing is amiss here.”

She organically inhabits a broad array of styles, tying them together with her euphoric and liberating message. “The general theme is live your dreams; free yourself from any external influences and seek answers from within,” she explains… Click here to contact Roswitha’s digital PR team!
