Internationally renowned Canadian cellist and composer, Raphael Weinroth-Browne is celebrated for his emotive and virtuosic playing. In 2016, Raphael joined Norwegian progressive rock icons Leprous. His cello has since featured prominently on their latest three albums; he has played over 200 shows with them in Europe, North America, and the Middle East and will be on tour across Europe in 2023 . Appearing on over 150 studio albums, including the Juno Award-winning Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light (Woods of Ypres), Raphael has also produced cello renditions of prog/metal songs that have been praised and reposted by Opeth, Steven Wilson, and Chris Adler (Lamb of God). Raphael released Worlds Within Live in 2021, a live rendition of the 2020 studio album, which led to performances of the material in Lisbon, Portugal and a highly successful collaboration with the Ottawa Dance Directive over four consecutive sold out nights. In early 2022, he toured extensively with Leprous, culminating in a performance at the legendary Royal Albert Hall. He will be appearing with the band later this year supporting rock heavyweights Evanescence and Apocalyptica.
