Roli Frei is considered one of the best singers on the Swiss music scene. For five decades now, he has been able to inspire with his voice across generations, eras and genres. Whether with soulful soul, rousing blues, tender folk or complex prog rock, the Basel native, born in 1953, always conveys absolute authenticity, dedication, conviction and strong emotions.
Roli Frei discovered the soulful power of spirituals back in the early 60s. He still sings in this tradition today - soulful singing fueled by his very own emotions. For ten years he lived, worked and toured with the legendary Basel group CIRCUS, after which he also successfully toured Switzerland and Germany for years with the "Lazy Poker Blues Band". He has been on the road for 30 years as a singer-songwriter with his passion project "Soulful Desert", solo or with a band. He can look back with gratitude on more than 1800 concerts and 20 albums.
This is not the time for big plans. Intimate concerts on small and medium-sized stages, working on new songs, spontaneous appearances, small trips...... The main thing is that the feelings are right. Over the course of the year, we will see where the journey takes us.
