"Some performers are like circus ringmasters when they are on stage. Rosie Bans was one such performer and she soon tamed the animals in the audience. Benefitting from a musical education and thus actually knowing what syncopation is, she adopted a direct approach to audience manipulation through the kind of slick songs and slap your face banter that easily marked her out as a proper entertainer and that’s a rare thing to see in Glasgow these days.
Job done, as they say." - Bluesbunny, independant reviews
"Rosie Bans is my newest little obsession. A little soul, kind of jazzy, almost funky. Then there is that sweet, clear voice above all. A slight departure from my usual folk, alt-country, shoegazy, lo-fi garage, electronic, sophisti-pop, and twee favorites". - I Sing in the Kitchen Blog
"With the likes of Adele storming the music scene this year, 2011 has shown that now is the time for strong voiced female singer/songwriters. Rosie Bans is no different with her latest single ‘Pictures’ the self-titled track from her new EP. Her voice has a soulful element with a contemporary musical style making her fresh and enjoyable to listen to. ‘Pictures’ is about ridding yourself of someone and moving on with your life - a theme we’ve all heard in music countless times, but with Bans her unique approach somehow makes it seem fresh and somewhat feministic." - Unsigned Britain
