BLUE ROSE CODE

“Blue Rose Code is as slippery as an eel; a genre dodger; a mess of influences and contradictions. This rare display of soul and emotion will not be boxed, a sign of something special.” Spiral Earth

Edinburgh born Ross Wilson spent his creative formative years in East London, then moved to South England “to be by the sea’s energy” but it is in his homecoming that he has found where his heart is. Life wasn’t always simple for Wilson. “I have swapped one type of chaos for another” says Wilson.

“On my darkest day I found my benediction”

Now a committed enthusiast and creative whirling dervish, Wilson has seen the past few years produce his most exciting work including the album ‘The Ballad of Peckham Rye’, which was nominated for the prestigious Scottish Album Of The Year Awards in 2014 and featured a roll-call of remarkable talent, including Danny Thompson, Karine Polwart, John Wetton, Aidan O’Rourke and Kathryn Williams.

'Grateful', the first single from the new album, was released at the end of 2015 and was playlisted on BBC Radio Scotland for a full five weeks. In unprecedented fashion, the following two Blue Rose Code singles were playlisted by Radio Scotland, making three in a row.
