“...the singer-songwriter is an empowering figure for many ”
— The National Newspaper
Glaswegian musician, songwriter and producer Rosie Bans writes intelligent multi-genre pop music which has gained national support from press including features in The Musician Magazine (“melodic and finely observed songs”), Louder Than War (“powerful songs full of emotion”) and London based blog Gigslutz (“passionate and unique”) .
With tracks play listed on local Scottish and National UK radio stations including Amazing Radio, Connect Radio, CamGlen and Celtic Music Radio, Rosie’s music pulls out what’s living just under the skin and drapes it over memorable choruses and rhythmic piano grooves for all to hear. Never lacking emotion, Rosie’s lyrics can often hide hard-hitting story lines.
In 2017, Scottish newspaper The National featured Rosie’s debut album “Identify Yourself”, funded by Creative Scotland, in their weekly music article using the phrase “an empowering figure for many” to describe the artist.
With over ten UK and European self organised tours under her belt and multiple support slots for both UK and international artists, most notable Pete Docherty at Nambucca music venue in London, Rosie is a popular writer passionate about having a positive influence on the world through music and art, committed to opening up conversations around mental health and equality through her songwriting.
With a drive to help pave the way for change towards more equality in the music industry Rosie founded and runs Women Producers Meet, a group for music producers who identify as womxn to discuss, support and platform each other in the music industry. Along with creative partner and fellow songwriter Becci Wallace Rosie also runs Songseeds Songwriting Retreats, 4 day online writing camps aimed at developing, connecting and networking songwriters.
