In the Autumn of last year, Rookling swapped the spires and hills of England for the Berlin underground. He stepped off the plane with a guitar, a suitcase, and a dream: to share his music with the world.
Each Rookling song blends the solemnity of an altar with the urgency of a church bell. The influence of the greats is unmistakeable: he channels the uncommon poetry of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, adding a more archaic thrill of his own. At a tender twenty-three, Rookling is a folk-prophet in the making.
On the 7th November 2019, he will bring out his debut single, “Football in the Field”.
