NUBIAN ROSE is a band with the roots in the 80’s hard, but melodic hard rock. The unique sound of their
music has a lot to do with their phenomenal singer Sofia Lilja, famous vocal coach from Swedish TV4-show
Idol. She’s got a tone like Ann Wilson of Heart, an attitude like Debbie Harry of Blondie and feelings like
the Queen of Soul herself; Aretha Franklin. Sofia is explosive and in total control of the stage and of
the audience. Her roots are in soul and classical music, but combined with the wonderful world of HARD ROCK
something great is happening. NUBIAN ROSE is a six-piece band with Thomas Lindgren and Christer Akerlund on
lead guitars, Henric Uhrbom on bass, Fredrik Akerlund on keyboards and David Algesten on drums.
NUBIAN ROSE have just finish recording their debut album; MOUNTAIN, which will be released in mid-April.
MOUNTAIN is mixed by Sweden’s greatest producer/mixer on the genre of Hard rock, winner of two Grammis,
TOBIAS LINDELL. Over the last few years he has built himself a massive reputation while working with bands
like; Mustasch, Europe, CrashDiet, Bullet, Hardcore Superstars, HEAT, amongst many, many, others. He has
truly made the NUBIAN ROSE debut album sound fantastic. The world famous guitar superhero and former member
of Europe, Kee Marcello, is making a guest appearance on the album, so does also Mats Leven, one of the finest
vocals in the world of hard rock and former singer of Yngwie Malmsteen’s band, Therion, Krux and Swedish Erotica.
All of these things together makes MOUNTAIN an unique, fantastic album that you want to have on repeat at every
party you will go to and if you listen to it in your car, beware, you might get caught speeding.
In China they say that the year 2012 is the year of the DRAGON.
They are wrong; it’s the year of the ROSE!
