Country Sweden

Style Classic Rock/Hard Rock

Profile NUBIAN ROSE is a band with the roots in the 80’s hard, but melodic hard rock. The unique sound of their music has a lot to do with their phenomenal singer Sofia Lilja, famous vocal coach from Swedish TV4-show Idol. She’s got a tone like Ann Wilson of Heart, an attitude like Debbie Harry of Blondie and feelings like the Queen of Soul herself; Aretha Franklin. Sofia is explosive and in total control of the stage and of the audience. Her roots are in soul and classical music, but combined with the wonderful world of HARD ROCK something great is happening. 

NUBIAN ROSE is a six-piece band with Thomas Lindgren and Christer Åkerlund on lead guitars, Henric Uhrbom on bass, Fredrik Åkerlund on keyboards and David Algesten on drums.

NUBIAN ROSE have just finish recording their debut album; MOUNTAIN, which will be released in mid-April. MOUNTAIN is mixed by Sweden’s greatest producer/mixer on the genre of Hard rock, winner of two Grammis, TOBIAS LINDELL. Over the last few years he has built himself a massive reputation while working with bands like; Mustasch, Europe, CrashDiet, Bullet, Hardcore Superstars, HEAT, amongst many, many, others. He has truly made the NUBIAN ROSE debut album sound fantastic.
The world famous guitar superhero and former member of Europe, Kee Marcello, is making a guest appearance on the album, so does also Mats Levén, one of the finest vocals in the world of hard rock and former singer of Yngwie Malmsteen’s band, Therion, Krux and Swedish Erotica. All of these things together makes MOUNTAIN an unique, fantastic album that you want to have on repeat at every party you will go to and if you listen to it in your car, beware, you might get caught speeding.

In China they say that the year 2012 is the year of the DRAGON. They are wrong; it’s the year of the ROSE! Long before the European release of ‘Mountain‘, NUBIAN ROSE were also booked to play the main stage at the first Hard Rock Hell AOR festival in Rotherham 2013. This was the band’s first European show and their appearance was one of the festivals most talked about with Sofia Lilja sporting a Union Jack cat suit for part of the show to mark the event!
With some changes in the band line-up, Nubian Rose is now back with their sophomore album. It’s called Mental Revolution and is clearly a step forward. Christer Åkerlund has produced it and Swedish superproducer, Tobias Lindell(HEAT, Europe, Hardcore Superstar, Avatar, Mustasch), has once again done the mixing. The production is more edgy and bigger in every way; drums and guitars are dominating together with great melodies. Christer and Sofia’s cooperation as a songwriting duo has deepend and matured. It’s obvious that the roots of the Nubian Rose music is coming from the same place as before, but with Mental Revolution they have clearly been taking a big step forward.
