Streetlight Records

Roe Kaparas debut vinyl release on Epitaph Record brings the songs from his wildly successful 2023 digital release, i hope hell isnt real ep, together with his catalog of singles from 2021- 2022.

Nobody was born cool proclaims Roe Kapara. Wheres the fun in that? After relocating from Nashville to Los Angeles just before the pan- demic, the St. Louis-born singer/songwriter did what any reasonable 20-something would: find solace online and build a community. Soon, his burgeoning digital fanbase hit six digits, enthralled by his endearingly unpretentious personality but also by his irresistible music, a modern swirl of indie, psych, dream pop, and alternative.

Dwelling on the death of his own past is a common theme through Kaparas music, throughout a catalog of DIY singles like Everyones Dying and Past Grow that helped boost his streaming listeners into the 2 Millions and TikTok audience over 350,000 (with 5.8 Million likes.) But just as hes willing to expose vulnerable parts of himself in his songs, hes quick to shine the mirror outward to address the creeping dread of modern life: consumerism, corporate greed, climate change, the general feelings of the younger generation in 21st-century America.

Combining these two sides of his musical personality deeply relatable yet unafraid to stand up and ask lifes big questions into pop songs makes for a musical journey thats a little off-kilter, sure, but all the better and more interesting in the end.
