Roia Rafieyan has the vocal stylings of a Carole King or a Joni Mitchell and the quirky songwriting style of a Christine Lavin or a Dar Williams. Many of Roia’s songs come from her work as a music therapist. Her passion for her work is reflected in her lyrics and point of view as a songwriter. Her music is deceptively simple. She will drift effortlessly from the guitar to the keyboard. She is equally at home with a sparse accompaniment as she is with a wall of notes, her voice always floating above it all. You can detect the jazzy influence in her chord progressions, the folky flavor of her rhythms, and the classic rock influence all merged together into a new genre.
