A nomad both geographically and musically, Ross Wilson (Blue Rose Code) writes from the heart - eschewing any specific genre. His songs, which tackle love, loss, travel, home, accepting the past and embracing the future, are painted with colours of soul, jazz, folk and pop - an eclecticism that has seen him compared to John Martyn, Van Morrison and Tom Waits.
Blue Rose Code were recently featured on Loose Ends (BBC Radio 4), the esteemed Quay Sessions (BBC Radio Scotland) was nominated for Scots Singer Of The Year in the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards 2017, won Scottish Album of the Year 2017 and was also listed as one of the Albums of the Year by The Skinny and No Depression respectively.
“For those of you that long for Van Morrison to return to his days of Caledonian Soul or miss the late John Martyn, just switch your affections to Ross Wilson.” **** – Scottish Daily Express
