Sola Rosa, L.A. Mitchell

Sola Rosa’s diversity walks an ever-erratic line between organic and electronic elements, bewitching and beguiling ears in equal proportion.
Spikey Tee - vocals
L.A. Mitchell - vocals
Ben White - guitar
Matt Short - bass
Andrew Spraggon - production, keys, percussion, gadgets

Fusing elements of diverse genres with skewed soundtracks, rubbing shoulders with elements of dub, hip-hop, lounge and jazz along the way.

Since 1999, Sola Rosa’s Andrew Spraggon has been tantalising listeners with otherworldly aural experiences, honing his craft and taking Sola Rosa from a self-released one-man project to fully-fledged live powerhouse.

He’s kept good company on the road and in the studio – Sola Rosa has counted members of Dimmer, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Goldenhorse, Pluto and Sommerset among its ranks over the years, not to mention pilfering the best members of Che Fu, King Kapisi and Anika Moa’s bands, and tapping the talents of internationally renowned artists like Nathan Haines and Spikey Tee.

Add a succession of highly regarded releases on a slew of labels including Ministry of Sound, Guidance, Different Drummer, Stereo Deluxe and Satellite K, and you’ll see why so many eager ears are always fastened on what Sola Rosa does next.

‘Sola Rosa’s infectious beats hit the crowd with deadly aim right from the start and the variety of sounds on offer kept everyone on their toes – literally.’
- Renee Kirk, tv3.co.nz
