Roseanne is a 26 year old singer-songwriter from Edinburgh, Scotland, and has performed at various venues, sometimes acting as support for established artists - Tommy Reilly, Lucy Spraggan, Teddy Thompson, Otis Gibbs, Ricky Ross and Karima Francis to name a few. She was named as one of the four nominees for the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, and one of her songs was subsequently played on the Mark Radcliffe show. This also led to a live performance on Radio 2 on the Simon Mayo show.
In the summer of 2015, Roseanne was selected by Steve Earle for a Scholarship at his song writing camp in New York. He selected her for a Scholarship again in 2016 and 2017.
In late 2017, Roseanne announced the recording of a debut album. Funded through a Kickstarter campaign, recorded in Brooklyn, and with Teddy Thompson producing, ‘Trails’ was released in April 2019. The record also features a duet with Steve Earle himself.
In April 2018, Roseanne was announced as the winner of the ‘Lyrics Only’ category in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition for her song ‘Amy’. Judges include the likes of Lorde and Tom Waits.
In mid 2019, Roseanne was selected to showcase at AmericanaFest in Nashville.
With a loyal following that continues to grow, 2019 looks to be an exciting year for Roseanne.
