Rosie Frater-Taylor is widely regarded as a virtuoso guitarist and a vocalist with a powerful emotional range and depth. Rosie’s critically acclaimed 2nd album ‘Bloom’ accumulated over 3 million streams and was nominated at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards and named Jazz FM ‘Album Of The Week’. Drawing influence from the likes of PJ Harvey, through Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush, to the rockier roster – where John Mayer, Meshell Ndegeocello, St Vincent and Madison Cunningham hold court, her upcoming album ‘Featherweight’ will be released in 2024 marking a stylistic shift, deftly blurring the boundaries between rock, alt pop, neo soul, new-school jazz and folk whilst tackling an array of themes.

“…an artist I’ve fallen in love with , musically speaking” – Gilles Peterson, BBC 6 Music

“You ain’t going to be disappointed… the character from Rosie in this, the guitars and how charming they are… wonderful blend of singer songwriter music right here” – Jack Saunders, BBC Radio 1

Rosie started playing drums at the age of 8, picking up the guitar and ukulele soon after. She spent her early teens discovering her musician parents’ record collection – an eclectic mix of artists: Zero 7, Tania Maria, Seal, Pat Metheny and more. She began exploring her own love of songwriting, jazz and alternative harmony studying at both the Roundhouse and Royal Academy Of Music. Rosie set off laying out multi-layered guitar-based demos on Cubase at age 16. These would eventually become her self-produced debut album ‘On My Mind’ (2018), a unique collection of songs which garnered praise from BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 1’s Abbie McCarthy, Becca Stevens “badass”, with Jazzwise magazine hailing her “one to watch”. In 2022, Rosie played over 60 shows across Europe, including opening for folk/Americana sensation Madison Cunningham, legendary singer Kurt Elling and playing Gilles Peterson’s We Out Here on the main stage.

‘Hold The Weight’, the lead single from the new album is an ethereal, angular guitar jam suffused with rage, describes the feeling when no amount of words can bear the burden of the intensity of emotion attached to them. Commenting on the new sound she explores on the ‘Featherweight’ album Rosie said: “The new record is grittier, rockier and more intentional for me. I felt it was very important to capture my live band’s energy and chemistry to do the tracks justice”.
