Galway band Rofi James have been using their unique, dark pop/rock sound to gather a strong following in the west of Ireland and further afield after the success of debut singles ‘Fool For Your Love’, ‘Open Eyes’ (with Best Single nominations) and their follow up singles 'I Tried', 'Love Shot', 'Every Time I Make You Hate Me', 'Sorry', 'Berlin Wall' and most recently 'Over You'.
Since releasing their debut single, the band have opened for established acts including Picture This, Wild Youth, Hermitage Green, The Riptide Movement, The Stunning and The Blizzards to name but a few. Other notable appearances include Electric Picnic, Fever Pitch, OTB Music Festival and Riverfest.
Rofi James have acquired over 4 Million Impacts on Irish Radio and over 200,000 Streams on Spotify with regular airplay on RTÉ 2FM, iRadio, Beat 102103, Red FM and various radio stations nationwide.
Rofi James last run of live shows before the pandemic was the Galway 2020 Fire Festival, touring across the county of Galway, playing in Clifden, Spiddal, Tuam, Balliansloe, Portumna and Athenry, playing to nearly 15,000 people across the week. They were due to finish off the week playing at the grand opening ceremony in front of 50,000 people, however the event fell foul to the unpredictable weather of Galway.
The pandemic continued to wreak havoc on the music industry in 2021, however this gave the band a chance to go back to basics, write & record new material, and organise big plans for the future. They rounded off the year with 2 sold out shows in The Loft venue in Galway.
Rofi James are currently putting plans in place to make 2023 their best year yet, with several single releases, and a debut album in the pipeline.
