A nomad both geographically and musically, Blue Rose Code aka Ross Wilson writes from the heart abandoning any specific genre. The twelve songs on his latest album The Water Of Leith, addressing themes of love, loss, travel, home, accepting the past and embracing the future, are painted with colours of folk, jazz, soul and pop – an eclecticism that has become a hallmark.
A sparkling catalogue of heartfelt and telling songs has brought BRC a growing following who relish the twists and turns in styles that he brings to records and the scintillating live performances. On stage he’s masterful whether solo or with his band (tonight is a trio), with the grace and passion of his songs shining through each and every performance.
‘Blue Rose Code is as slippery as an eel; a genre dodger; a mess of influences and contradictions. This rare display of soul and emotion will not be boxed, a sign of something special.’ Spiral Earth
‘The Water of Leith is an ode to forgiveness, to letting go of the past and holding on to hope – it’s an astonishingly accomplished, pure and sincere record’ ★★★★★ The Skinny – Album of the Year 2017
