Blue Rose Code

A nomad both geographically and musically, Ross Wilson writes from the heart abandoning any specific genre. The twelve songs on new 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 of Blue Rose Code and has seen him compared to John Martyn, Van Morrison and Tom Waits.

Underlining the sense of movement and place in Ross' work and The Water Of Leith is rooted in his return to his Scottish homeland. There, he reconnected with the stellar musicians who were to become an integral part of the new album's sound: multi-award-winning singer Julie Fowlis, celebrated Gaelic singer Kathleen MacInnes, BBC Folk Award Winner, Ross Ainslie, 2017's Scottish Jazz Awards' Instrumentalist of the Year Konrad Wiszniewski and more.

'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
'a work laden with beauty, possessed of depth, heart and soul' 9/10 Americana UK
'Seriously, can't recommend Blue Rose Code enough, cannot stop listening.' Ewan McGregor
