Without question these two Canadian artists are one of North America’s best kept secrets, the next big thing. They have now joined forces to create one of the most exciting and dynamic musical duos in recent memory.
From the stages of Carnegie Hall to Walt Disney World Florida, these pop-instrumental recording artists have been capturing the hearts of audiences with their fresh musical arrangements, their technical virtuosity, their endearing on-stage presence, and their ability to invite their audience into the music- making process.
Please meet Roy & Rosemary, the modern take on the Piano/Violin duo.
Highly gifted and extensively trained, pianist Roy Tan, and violinist Rosemary Siemens, are musicians at the top of the improvisational craft. Their music features lush and captivating arrangements of familiar and contemporary numbers, with a highly cinematic and theatrical influence. Their diverse styles are an artful palate of sound, using elements of jazz, pop, and classical, expanding beyond the limits of any single genre. This results in a thrilling live experience where their shows have many instances of exciting audience participation, often including a request set as well as a fun and imaginative creation session, leaving things “unhinged” for both the audience and the artists on stage.
Not surprising, this duo has already performed in a diverse number of venues ranging from intimate house concerts, to a number of concerts at New York’s famed ‘Carnegie Hall’, a performance as the first ever instrumentalist at St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican; at the Egyptian Consulate in Washington DC; at the Miss America pageant in Las Vegas, entertaining at numerous private events, including for Donald Trump at his Mar-A-Lago estate in Palm Beach; as well as performances at the 2008 Beijing and the 2010 Vancouver Olympics; and even opening Hockey Night in Canada.
Now based in Vancouver, BC, Roy & Rosemary are also sought after as arrangers, orchestrators (including full string productions) and artistic consultants, most recently arranging and recording a single with Mary Zilba (from “The Real Housewives of Vancouver”) for a film written and produced by Frank Giustra (Lionsgate Entertainment). Most recently they worked with Grammy-winning producer Ian Prince, and five time Juno award winning producer, Sam Reid from Glass Tiger.
This year, enjoy their debut album, Once Upon a Dream, available on iTunes and in stores across Canada. Why not let their music take you away and make you dream.
