Birmingham’s Rosie Tee is a composer & performer known for her innovative, atmospheric blend of electronic, jazz, classical & pop. Her sound has been hailed as ‘transcendent’ and ‘genre-defying’, straddling the contrasting worlds of rising UK Jazz and contemporary classical. Colour and image are at the centre of Tee’s lyrical writing, depicting imagined scenes and scenarios. Her sound is inspired by the likes of Laura Mvula, Björk & Anna Meredith.
Over the course of 2018, Tee has collaborated closely with her quartet, which features a line-up of Rosie on vocals & glockenspiel, synth & keys (Tom Harris), bass guitar (Dan Cippico) and drums (Kai Chareunsy). The band have since made ‘great waves’ across their Birmingham hometown performing as part of Town Hall/ Symphony Hall Jazzlines, Sofar Sounds & This is Tmrw events. A UK tour will mark the release of the follow-up Chambers EP in 2019.
Receiving her musical education from renowned composers Joe Cutler & Sean Clancy at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, her orchestral-style arrangements for the band are mirrored in her compositions for professional ensembles. Tee also featured as a female composer for BBC Radio 3’s celebrations of International Women’s Day 2017.
