About the tour

Amazing Grace Presents: Aeris Roves

South Yorkshire born-songwriter and producer Aeris Roves makes music following Frank Ocean’s school of thought: his instrumentals are nuanced, drawing on electronic elements as often as they lean on classic percussion.

His songs are a practise in subtlety, where every sound – though gentle and muted – is always used to great effect beneath a soulful voice. Debut mixtape, Moon by Island Gardens – named after a regular South East London-haunt for Roves to clear his mind and draw inspiration from – was a fitting title choice. Poised and reflective, the songs were made for the small hours.

20-year old Roves – born Kyle Miller – has experienced a meteoric rise since his first performance: “As an artist, I always felt like there was something other inside apart from myself,” he tells me. “The first time I showcased ‘Aeris Roves’ at a performance, I met the people who would push me forward. There was only six months between that show and signing my first publishing deal. When I got off stage and listened to the feedback, it made me believe in myself.”
