Rofi James Release New EP ‘Helium’ Ahead Of Live Performances

We first met Rofi James at Easter, when they were performing at the inaugural Irish Music Party Showcase, held at Dublin’s world famous Workman’s Club. Now the pop/rock band from Galway have released their 5 track debut EP, ‘Helium’, following on the success of their previous releases, ‘Fool For Your Love’, ‘Open Eyes’, and most recent single, ‘Reason’.
