Women That Rock presents:
with The Shacks, Lip Talk, and a DJ set by Box of Paints
7pm doors • 8pm show
Psychedelic-tinged Americana singer Rodes Rollins brings her “dusty folk-pop” (Billboard) to National Sawdust for a special evening presented by Women That Rock. Rollins has worked with collaborators of Devendra Banhart and Weezer, and now she is joined by The Shacks, Lip Talk, DJ duo Box of Paints, and more special guest to be announced. Come be transported by this empowering show.
If a spaghetti western and Nancy Sinatra had a love child, it would be Rodes Rollins. The young singer could fool you into thinking she’s from another time, care of her haunting vocals and sprawling psychedelic-tinged Americana rhythms.
The rising musician released her debut EP Young Adult in 2017 with the help of producer Alex Goose (Weezer): a coming-of-age tale full of vintage rock, ethereal pop and wavy melodies. Many of the songs were inspired by her first love who had a momentary lapse in judgment and was put in jail and later deported. With a story so heavy and personal, she spent the five-track EP analyzing the lack of humanity there was surrounding his situation. Now Rollins is ready to introduce the world to more of her self-described “cowgirl poetry.”
Since then, Rollins has focused on opening up the narrative. For most of her newer releases, Rollins recruited Portugal. The Man’s Kane Richotte to play drums. This isn’t the first time she’s worked with big players in the game: Rollins’ recordings have featured accomplished artists like Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, Matthew Compton of Electric Guest, Noah Georgeson of Devendra Banhart. Major Lazer’s Jillionaire has even championed Rollins over the years, helping facilitate a collaboration between she and producer Branko for his album Atlas. And now, throughout the summer and fall months of 2019, Rollins is set to release her latest project, featuring new musicians such as renowned Brazilian guitarist, Fabiano Do Nascimento.
