Jasmine Rodgers releases ‘Underwater’, a live recording made at Kore Studios in May. Featuring Ivor Novello Award winning Scott Matthews, ‘Underwater’ also features Danny Keane on cello. “I wanted to capture us all together in one room because I think the energy is different and more intense. I’ve beenfortunate enough to support Scott on his last tour and I knew it would be really fun to do this. It’s a song with deep meaning for me and both Scott and Danny got it.”
Rodgers is a London born musicianand says this has nurtured a deep love of many different genres. Her solo shows feature her complex guitar picking styles and intricate vocals, effortlessly veering from folk to rock music, which is why Matthews invited her to support him on his latest tour.
Her solo forays take her to more folk based territory, and last August she travelled up to Shetland to perform at a sold out show with Jenny Sturgeon (Jenny Sturgeon Trio, Salt House). Jasmine also has a solid fanbase in the Japaneseanime world thanks to her work as frontwoman to British rock band Boa, who wrote and performed the soundtrack to award winning anime Lain Serial Xperiments.
Jasmine is currently working on new material set for release later this year and her recent collaboration with Scott Matthews and Danny Keane has culminated with a live video recording at Kore Studios.
