about

Produced and engineered by JUNO award-winning engineer/producer Michel Phillip Wojewoda (Barenaked Ladies, Great Big Sea, Rheostatics), Roam tells stories of illumination through tribulation with 10 originals + 1 cover of 80's classic The Pretender's "Hymn To Her".

Haunting melodies delivered by rich, sensual vocal; playful rhythms on acoustic percussion; warm instrument wood, strings, breath, skin blend with subtle eclectic studio invented sonics.
LUMINA is contemporary in writing and production with nod to traditions in Roma music.

Canadian music at the crossroads of song, culture and philosophy.

LUMINA means light in Romanian. original poem on inside of CD disc summarises the backstory:

"FRACTURES OF BONE AND HEART
ILLUMINATE
LAY MY ARMOUR DOWN
FOR LUMINA"

Nobody can keep me bound

Nobody can lock me up
Without a key i give them
Nobody can build a wall
Around my heart
I'm the only one
Who can call off the guard

I've got the whole world in my hands
the whole world in my hands

Everybody feels alone
It's universal
Don't hide at home
In exile
Make a wish
Everything you desire
