Roe takes on the stigma of mental health in new single ‘Down Days’

Fresh from winning the ‘Oh Yeah Contender Award’ for best emerging act at the 2018 Northern Ireland Music Prize, opening for Snow Patrol on their UK arena tour in January and February (at the personal request of Gary Lightbody) and playing shows on three different continents in just 3 months, the 19-year-old electro pop artist is about to drop her latest single, ‘Down Days’.

“I was having a really bad day. I felt like I couldn’t talk to anyone without annoying them, and I was angry and frustrated at myself. I felt like my brain was about to explode, with no idea how to handle it. That night I came home and started to write this song as a way of trying to make myself feel better. It’s okay not to feel okay. At a time when it can feel that we’re surrounded by negativity and constant social pressure, it’s important to remember that no matter how shitty you feel, you are not alone.” ROE

The new release comes at the beginning of a busy year for the young songwriter. She kicked off the year with radio spins on Huw StephensBBC Introducing tips for 2019” on Radio 1, was announced as one of the key artists on RTE2FMs 2019 “Rising”, will be supporting Snow Patrol on their arena tour around the UK before heading to Texas to perform at the world famous SXSW festival in March.
