Winner of ‘Best Emerging Artist’ at the 2018 Northern Ireland Music Prize, ROE is 20-year-old multi-instrumentalist from Derry (Ireland), Roisin Donald. Laying down her unique brand of self-styled “Grumpy Electro-Pop”, she has been blazing a trail for young female indie artists across Ireland, UK, Europe and beyond.

Releasing independently through hometown label Fictive Kin Records, and with support from Help Musicians NI, ROE has already performed on the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury, been the voice of a UK wide advertising campaign to promote her hometown of Derry and most recently had her music used as part of a TV and radio campaign for BBC Music NI, ITV’s ‘The Only Way is Essex’, Channel 4’s ‘Made in Chelsea’ and Netflix’s ‘Terrace House’.

In March of 2017 ROE was announced as one of the picks for Help Musicians UKs new Northern Ireland scheme: “3:3, three bands in three years”. The scheme will see a funded programme of development and support for ROE and her team over the next few years to help build and maintain a sustainable career in the industry.

With performances at The Great Escape, Reeperbahn, M for Montreal, Other Voices, Live at Leeds, Eurosonic and Primavera, ROE has been moving from strength to strength with increasing momentum. Selected as one of 21 acts from around the UK (the only Northern Irish artist) to perform on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury 2017, ROE is carving out her own path, on her terms.

ROE kicked off 2019 being featured on BBC Radio 1s “Introducing Tips for 2019” by Huw Stephens, included in RTE2FMs “Rising” list, and supporting Snow Patrol on their arena tour around the UK. She performed her first shows in the US at SXSW 19, and has some huge supports coming up with Snow Patrol, Kodaline, Tom Odell and The Coronas.

Her latest single Down Days was released on February 1st, and featured on a number of prominent streaming playlists including “New Music Friday UK” and “New Pop Revolution” on Spotify, racking up 20,000 streams in its first week of release.
