The Rose Affair are Lucas Jones (vocals), Matt Jones (guitar), Jacob Pett (drums) and Tom Brown (bass). Formed in 2013 as a four piece band, they have since released several singles and played at countless venues across East Anglia and London, including The Junction 1, The Underbelly, Surya, and headlined both Junction 3 and The Portland Arms.
Influenced by a wide variety of different artists; From Jeff Buckley, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Jamie T to The Pixies, The Smiths and Bob Marley, The Rose Affair have often been quoted as creating a ‘Refreshingly unique sound’. With their passionate adoration for music and energetic live performances, The Rose Affair have caught the attention of many audiences in the past year. After releasing their first single, a review from Moth to the Flame stated;
‘With its heartfelt lyrics, stunning vocals and catchy melodies, [this song] capitalises on the current trend of alternative/indie music, but with enough emotion and imagination to stand up above their peers with an appeal that makes you want to listen… Keep an eye on these boys, they are the real deal.’
Most recently, The Rose Affair have released a brand new single titled ‘Fifth Avenue’ which has been awarded ‘Track of the Week’ on BBC Introducing Cambridge and has been played consistently on various radio stations further afield such as Six Towns and Sin Radio. Currently, the band are working on their debut EP set for release around mid-2015, followed by a string of shows across the UK leading into festival season.
