GROOVE-ISM presents Roland Clark, DRUU and More TBA
Roland Clark is known as House Music's Songsmith, Producer, Deejay, and Vocalist, all in one. He was born in New Jersey however hails in New York City for his musical upbringing. Some of Roland Clark’s early recordings helped to define the underground house scene in NYC in the 90s. Under the alias South Street Player he had a big hit in 1993 with "Who Keeps Changing Your Mind" released on Strictly Rhythm. His latest alter ego Jesus Jackson pegged the 3rd season opening of the show Grey's Anatomy with his song "Running On Sunshine." Roland's voice is often described as wildly erotic, soulful, loving, and deep Roland Clark can be heard on the latest Katy Perry hit Swish Swish out on Universal Music. His voice penetrates throughout the different realms and sub genres of House Music and his vocal touch is consistent; he is considered by many to the "Voice of House." His lyrics are powerful and political, and his voice is instantly recognized by everyone in the electronic dance music culture. Roland has written and sang vocals for many top producers, and his voice gives the tracks their soul and meaning. He is a featured vocalist on many Fatboy Slim releases, including the hit "Star 69 (What The F**k)" and Armand Van Helden's gorgeous "Flowerz." As Roland (under the alias Urban Soul) says himself on King Street Sounds' 2003 hit "President House"... "If House is a nation, I Wanna be President."
