Rockabella was born in 2014, when former lead singer of alternative rock band Evo, Teodora Morosanu returned to the local music scene with new material and a brand new approach. The independently produced, adult-alternative project brought together talented musicians with many years of experience (Dragos Simionescu – guitar, Radu Anghel – bass, Bogdan Morosanu – drums). The band released the EP “A World Outside” in 2015 which debuted with the atmospheric and introspective track “Motionless”. Later that year, Teodora & Bogdan, now leading the project towards their own vision, delved into music video production and drew inspiration from cinema noir to create a tantalizing and thought provoking video for the song “Buttercup”.
In 2017, Rockabella shape-shifts again and teases audiences with new material. Their first Romanian language track, “Incă un pas” is inspirational and optimistic, showing us a very different side of Teodora’s songwriting, though she assures that the new material is in no way an “easy listen”. Rockabella promises at least 10 new tracks in their new album, all written by Teodora who has retained complete creative control over the songs. The band has also finished production on their newest video for the song “7 Minute”, aimed to be released this fall.
With a powerhouse crew of amazing musicians supporting the project such as Andrei Ilie (Fameless) – drums, Serban Ionut Georgescu (Fameless, White Walls) – bass, and the vision and driving force of Bogdan Morosanu as music producer, Rockabella’s latest installment promises to be a deeply immersive experience.
By now a trademark of Rockabella’s music, we’re expecting something raw and unapologetic, yet sensitive and intimate. Another dive into the dark corners of our inner life.
