Many yearn for a career where you can infuse your passions collaboratively yet creatively both on and off stage. Indie-Pop duo, The ROAMies, have managed to combine these efforts and not only artistically create a path where both of them can express themselves, but one they can productively spend more time together while perfecting their craft.
Described as a 'happy musical journey for your soul', The ROAMies are composed of married couple Alexa James and Rory Partin. "We are so artistic, and we love being together, explains Partin. We are both passionate about each other and our craft, so we thought we wanted to experience this together."
The two are not only creating musical harmony in The ROAMies, but they each both have their solo projects. The ROAMies are a fun-quirky duo where soulful meets pop and are heavily influenced with folk-like instruments that delivers a blue grass feel. They officially joined forces a little over a year ago and says by joining they have gained momentum quickly and have been seeing a lot of progress all the while they have remained very supportive of each other and their solo projects.
The entrusting couple proved to be a great combination! "The best part about performing is connecting with people, and knowing that they feel something. says James. I want this to be a way of expression, it also allows for people to get to know us as a band and get a sense of who we are to build that foundation."
"People are getting us, and capturing that moment, says James. We are all hungry, but to be understood is really satisfying." The ROAMies are currently gearing up for their tour in Europe pretty soon and will be hitting major spots such as: Belgium, Holland, Germany, and Finland. While this is a huge step for the both of them, the two somehow keep their cool prior to hitting the stage by saying a prayer and giving each other a quick kiss.
How adorable is that?!
