After moving from Livermore, CA to Reykjavík, Iceland in 2010, Ryan Karazija wrote and recorded Low Roar's self-titled debut with Grammy-winning producer Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele). Upon its release in November 2011, Karazija then recruited Logi Guðmonsson on drums and the two toured a myriad of European countries, eventually joining the Iceland Airwaves and ATP festival lineups, as well as supported indie favorites Soko and Ásgeir. Adding Leifur Bjornsson on programming, Low Roar issued their second album, 0, co-produced by Scheps and Mike Lindsay (Tuung, and featuring Icelandic darlings Amiina on strings, in 2014.
Now Karazija & Co. return in 2017 with Once In A Long, Long While, their highly anticipated third full-length outing. Low Roar is way past that "Made In Iceland" label. Ryan wrote the new album moving between Warsaw, Mexico City, California and London, where he finished recording and mixing with longtime collaborator Andrew Schepps. The results were the same: honest songs that can sooth your soul or break your heart depending on the time of day. Ultimately, it is deeply personal music that emerges, not out of an external landscape, but from within the most basic human emotions.
