REFUGE’s sound is high-energy, guitar-driven rock with strong influences from ‘70s greats such as the Allman Brothers, Black Sabbath, Neil Young and Santana. A comparable modern band would be Greta Van Fleet.
The band’s youth and diversity is unmissable – members are 12 (singer) to 15 years old and they have roots in 7 countries and 4 continents. The lead guitarist and singer are also siblings. All of the members come from parents that work in humanitarian aid and development, which is what brought them to Kenya in the first place.
After 2 years of gigging some of Nairobi’s best venues, REFUGE started making waves throughout East Africa in 2018 resulting in multiple international TV, radio and online appearances. Their first recorded song even debuted at #1 in the East African rock charts, and held that position for months. Consequently, exposure on social media has grown to over 15k followers, mostly in the US and Europe.
REFUGE is confident and ambitious, and is looking for more exposure. They are highly creative and fully independent – 100% of their music is written, composed and directed by the band itself, which recently recorded a demo of 9 original songs under the album title ‘Haven to a Heavy Soul’.
I believe REFUGE’s music would be an excellent fit with your musical direction and style, and I would be grateful if you could review their top 3 songs below:
