Blue Rose Code
A nomad, both geographically and musically, Ross Wilson aka Blue Rose Code writes straight from – and to – the heart. His songs address universal themes of love, loss, travel, home, accepting the past and embracing the future in a deeply personal way. They are variously painted with the vibrant colours of folk, Americana, jazz, country, soul and pop; an eclecticism that has become a hallmark of his work and which has seen him compared to John Martyn, Van Morrison and Tom Waits amongst others. Wilson has spent the past few years producing four hugely acclaimed studio albums, most recently, The Water of Leith, named by The Skinny as its Album Of The Year.
“It doesn’t need categorisation, does it? It’s just great music, beautiful music, music to make you think, and to lose yourself in. All I know is, this album makes my heart swell. Filled with emotion and yearning and exploration of Scotland inside and out, it’s a splendid edifice.” Ian Rankin
“They’re surely one of the greatest live acts around right now so if you get a chance to see them in any of their many guises do yourself a favour and go.” Americana UK
