The Roches is the 1979 eponymous debut trio album by The Roches, produced by Robert Fripp, who also plays guitar and Fripperies (a variation of his Frippertronics). Also playing on the album are Tony Levin, Larry Fast and Jimmy Maelen of King Crimson and Peter Gabriel fame. The album was well received.

Speak is the fifth studio album by the folk trio The Roches, released in 1989 on MCA Records. The album features two singles which had accompanying videos, "Big Nuthin'" and "Everyone Is Good". Another track, "Nocturne", was featured in the 1988 film Crossing Delancey. The trio had contributed several songs to the movie's soundtrack, and the film featured Suzzy Roche as the best friend of Amy Irving's character in the movie.

The first Roches album was born of failure: Maggie and Terre Roche had gone to England to record as a duo. They’d gotten a record deal thanks to one of their mentors, Paul Simon, who they sang backup for on There Goes Rhymin’ Simon. Record companies wanted a certain kind of album from two women in the early ’80s-i. something with an equal amount of power chords and frizzed-out hair-and when the Roches did not appear to be delivering, they were called back from England. Last year, Maggie died of cancer, at the age of 65. The Roches ended. You could feel a hole open up in the city, and it seemed to signify the end of an era, an era that defined New York as a place that couldn’t necessarily be defined, much less marketed for mass appeal or branded.

The self-titled 1979 debut album by The Roches made g into music. It became a cult hit, turning Maggie, Terre and Suzzy Roche – New Jersey-raised siblings who embodied both cultural feminism and Greenwich Village boho cool - into sneaker-clad heroines of the folk scene. Self-written songs about pregnancy, work, family tensions, complex love and the feminine mystique gained clarity from the utterly clear, deliberately imperfect harmonies The Roches had mastered singing holiday carols in the street
