Rosie Frater-Taylor 'Bloom' live
Doors 6.30// show 8pm // 21-year-old UK singer, songwriter and guitarist Rosie Frater-Taylor has been hailed as "One To Watch" (JazzWise Magazine), "Genuinely exceptional" (Tom Robinson, 6 Music) and "One of the most amazing musicians to come out of the UK music scene in recent years" (Yolanda Brown). Her self-produced debut album "On My Mind" (2018), received both critical and public acclaim, garnering praise from 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, Ian Shaw, Love Supreme Festival and songstress Becca Stevens, one of Rosie's main inspirations. With new album 'Bloom' accumulating over 200k streams, Rosie has so far caught the attention of the likes of Gilles Peterson, Nitin Sawhney, Jordan Rakei, Michael League, Mark De Clive-Lowe, Osunlade & Rosie Lowe amongst others, with Complex Magazine, Bandcamp, Jazz FM, Worldwide FM, Jazzre:freshed, Soho Radio and global platform Pickup Music championing the young musician too.
With ‘Bloom’, out on 04th of June 2021, Rosie blends adventurous songwriting with a whimsical pop sensibility, multi-layered acoustic soundscapes and virtuoso guitar skills. While preserving her trademark luxurious vocals and unique guitaristic song-structures, Rosie's sound has been elevated through a collage of experiences and connections, be it through navigating the London jazz and folk scene or collaborating with musicians such as Snowpoet’s Chris Hyson on two songs.
Rosie's last single 'Hey' was championed by Gilles Peterson on his BBC6 Music show and he then invited her to play his legendary Brownswood Basement Session, performing 4 tunes from 'Bloom'. Gilles then went onto playing another three tracks from the LP, making it 8 album plays on national radio in the space of a week!
