“I’m very vulnerable on this album,” says violinist, producer, and singer-songwriter Roswitha. “I want to create a shift from negative to empowering messages and inspire people to live their dreams because I know how much strength it takes.” On her latest album, Destiny, the renowned jazz and classical artist lives her own dreams, making the bold move to step out as a singer-songwriter. Here, she embraces her total musicality and tastefully integrates her instrumental virtuosity within a musical style Roswitha started to describe as Jazz Rock Pop. It’s an elegantly eclectic blend of jazz, classical, R&B, hip-hop, rock and pop that showcases her gorgeous compositions and soulfully angelic vocals....

“I’ve put this album under “progressive rock.”…“art rock,”… This is great music that features a lot of violin and very complex compositions and arrangements. There’s a real focus on R&B and soul music, but plenty of other things, most notably world music … Personally, I’d say it falls closest to Bjork… quite an intriguing album … vocals on this cut make me think of Stevie Nicks quite a bit… pure style.” G.W.Hill, Music Street Journal
“…Roswitha dazzles crowds with genre-bending compositions with mixed rock, funk, classical, new age, world fusion, and experimental-folk explosions of sonic beauty….vocally congruent with Adele, Leigh Nash and Katie Melua… Roswitha is an innovative musician that showcases fourteen unique musical concoctions that are almost indefinable. Nothing is amiss here.” Matthew Forss, Inside World Music
