The story of this collaboration started in 2005 when The Roomates toured in Finland and met Sweet Jeena.
The soul of the Roomates are the singers: Steve Webb, Nick Kennedy, Mark Webb and Glen Brentnall from UK. They base their singing style on the italo-american doo wop like ‘Dion and the Belmonts’. They have been together for a long time and have gathered praise for their uncompromising sound and feel for the music. They have a solid fanbase in Europe and USA.
Sweet Jeena is a Finnish singer Jeena Rancken with a strong natural style and sound. She has a band Sweet Jeena and her Sweethearts that just debuted an album of their own 2009.
When the Roomates were searching for something unique for their next album, their manager suggested that they should try Jeena on some tracks. So they did and the results sounded so good that a quick decision was made to do the whole album together.
The result is here, an album filled with classic harmonies with Jeena flying her innocent pure sound on top. And it’s magic. The combination works like a charm. You’ll be moved and transported to another place and time.
