First/Last-Rolin Humes

"Rolin Humes is a pop / rock / blues quartet that is slowly becoming a circus blues act .
Comprised of four individuals, influenced by many different cultures, societies and music genres, Rolin Humes soon became much more than just a childish dream. The band, in it's present form, came together during a blues session, when for the first time, four young musicians, felt the power of immediate musical and personal understanding.

Check out the band at their official Website, Facebook, SoundCloud, Twitter and BandCamp. The Croatian band released their debut album, "Rolin Humes welcomes you to the Penultimate Supper 6/8", last Summer and is busy working on it's follow-up. The guys are trying to play in Berlin and if you follow this link and vote for Rolin Humes, you will be spreading some international love!
