Roswitha

Queen Rose Music is proud to present Roswitha’s official LIVE DVD Release Concert at the Blue Note, showcasing selections from her album DESTINY and featuring special surprise guests, her musical friends and collaborators on the NYC music scene. Expect a musical party!



“I’m very vulnerable on this album,” says violinist, producer, and singer-songwriter Roswitha. “I want to create a shift from negative to empowering messages and inspire people to live their dreams.” On her latest album, DESTINY, the renowned jazz and classical artist is making the bold move to step out as a singer-songwriter. Here, she embraces her total musicality and tastefully integrates her instrumental virtuosity within a musical style Roswitha started to describe as World Soul. It’s an elegantly eclectic blend of jazz, classical, R&B, hip-hop, rock and pop that showcases her gorgeous compositions and soulfully angelic vocals. Roswitha’s album DESTINY made it into 10 categories for a potential GRAMMY nomination in 2013.

Though the album has garnered favorable comparisons to such diverse artists as Sia, Sade, Florence and the Machine, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Tracy Chapman, Stevie Nicks, Les Nubians, Zap Mama and Björk, it‘s purely Roswitha. She organically inhabits a broad array of styles, tying them together with her euphoric and liberating message.

Previously, Roswitha has had an esteemed career as a topflight violinist. She has appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brian, in the movie August Rush, at the Latin Grammy’s with the likes of John Legend, Santana, Gloria Estefan and Patti LaBelle, and was featured on MTV’s Unplugged with Trey Songz. She’s also built a highly respected jazz profile sharing stages with such icons as Abbey Lincoln, Billy Hart, Joanne Brackeen and Butch Morris and issued the delightfully exotic Cherchez la Verité, a silky jazz album with violin, sensual vocals, and limber Afro Cuban grooves. She has notched over 50 production, arrangement, composition and performance credits on over 19 released albums, videos and film soundtracks.

“…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.”
- Matthew Forss, Inside World Music

“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.”
- G.W.Hill, Music Street Journal

"... (Destiny) is about as unique as her description of it… a fresh sound…Her voice is light, yet strong in a way that could be compared to any number of female artists including Florence and the Machine or Sia… a progressive sound… finds its place peppered within multiple genres… it has a way of becoming oddly addictive after awhile.”
- Alec Cunningham, goodvibesmusicreviews
