Walking the fine line between jazz, folk, and soul, Rochelle Rice, lives in between the cracks of hard and fast genre rules. As a singer steeped in the music of Lizz Wright and Joni Mitchell, Rice's sound leans heavily on solid lyrics, jazz-influenced harmony, and soaring vocals. Her debut EP, Wonder, released in 2016, (featuring the likes of Brent Birckhead and Mark G Meadows) established her as a singer's singer with beautiful original songs, a sizzling quartet, and lush strings.
Rice's versatility and unique skills opened the door for a long-standing stint with world-renowned, social justice-centered women's group, Sweet Honey In The Rock. Steeped in the rich legacy of the storied group, Rice released her roots music tinged single, “Mountains”, an autobiographical account of the artist’s struggle with anxiety and depression. Carrying the torch of Washington DC's indelible sound, the song features Christie Dashiell, Micah Robinson, and Shacara Rogers. Never one to shy away from self-examination, Rice continues to bare the innermost of herself, making for refined, freeing, and honest music.
