rumjig

Rumjig, currently located in Liverpool, find their inspiration in a variety of artists and have as their “soul” intention to “uplift and ignite people’s lust for life”. The band has released their debut, self-titled album.

Rumjig’s sound is a fusion of jazz, funk, gypsy, soul, ska, blues you name it they’ve absorbed it to good effect – in parts reminiscent of 1920s style music, heavy on brass and strings, and bearing more than a passing resembling to electro swing. The overall affect is an album of foot-tapping, earwormy tunes, which will have the listener nodding their head in time to the music.

The band Crowd Funded the album and raised a total of £5500 in just 55 days, back in late 2012. Their eponymous album has been a labour of love and a work in progress for the past three and a half years, but it will finally be released on December 2, following an album launch gig at The Magnet, Liverpool, on November 25.
