"Album Review"

“Roe… Guys want to be them and girls want to be with them. These troubadours of lovesick lyrics will surprise you again and again throughout their latest release, Letters and Lights, a sterling 14 track CD filled with pop hooks and undertones of music started in our great state by the likes of The Fray and The Heyday. Roe has been prominently mentioned in local music circles as a band to watch in 2009 and their song-writing prowess justifies the entire current buzz. “ - Colorado Music Buzz


“Roe is inline to be the next act from the Fort to make a splash… Not for nothing, but what the hell are they putting in the water up there? Seriously.” – Dave Herrera.

- Westword Magazine

"Upcoming Album"

“While most college towns serve as hotbeds for experimental or jam-friendly bands, Fort Collins has recently been churning out glossy alternative pop rock groups like they’re lattes during finals week, like Roe, a five-piece outfit that’s poised to reach the next level with their new release, “Letters and Lights.” – Gene Davis, Denver Daily News

"Letters And Lights"

Beautiful.” – Greta Cornett, Scene Magazine

- Scene Magazine


"The music of Roe aspires to and succeeds in hooking individuals with its eclectic charm...” Jennifer Leigh Johnson, Loveland Reporter Herald - Loveland Reporter Herald

The Story:

A happenstance introduction between five strangers sparks the beginning of a band that is now heralded as one of Colorado’s premier up and coming groups. Roe, from the heart of the Midwest has quickly risen in the local scene through their honest portrayal of life, love and faith. The sound has been described as a mixture of upbeat melodies and swooning tales of heartache and change. Never veering from their sentiment, “Roe pulls us flawlessly into the emotion and honesty of their tunes without abandoning integrity. Driven by blending piano based rock with heartfelt lyrics, carried by guitars and drums, Roe cleverly walks the line between rock and pop with more grace than a ballerina; a sound that gently reminds us of the struggles of being young again and the hope of finding strength to carry on once more.”
