“A rare talent. Flexible, fragile and breezy…” – CLASH Magazine
Combining the natural beauty of West Coast Canada with London's urban forest, Roff fully embraces his dual nationality and likes to refer to himself as a Canadian-UK Sandwich.
With his powerful and soulful voice, classical piano background and self-taught guitar skills, Roff has developed a unique style strongly influenced by artists such as Bon Iver and Jeff Buckley.
