Blending watery synth and guitar tones of 80s post punk with smooth and soft layered vocals of 90s alternative R&B, newcomer Roken finds himself swimming within a contemporary mixture, and the results are effortlessly individual. After receiving a laptop for his 14th birthday, he hurled himself into creating music. Roken began to figure out how to write and record songs of his own and started to craft a musical world that is difficult to categorize yet familiar to the ear. Seven years on, Roken is a multi-instrumentalist songwriter/producer.
