This Toronto native has suffered for her art.
There’s been emotional pain. Particularly in matters of the heart.
There’s been physical pain. As a teenager, she quite literally broken her spine in a training accident, ending her career as a gymnast.
And of course there’ve been a series of life experiences that she has filed under the heading of “what doesn’t break you makes you stronger.”
It’s little wonder then that the striking West Indian singer’s music posesses the same fiery spirit as other strong female musicians like Santigold, M.I.A. and Metric’s own Emily Haines. Quite simply, Rouletta’s been antagonized. The result is a rowdy collection of songs; some angry, all heartfelt and musically packaged in what Rouletta has dubbed
“New Jack Rock ‘n’ Roll".
