Blue Rose Code is Scottish singer and songwriter Ross Wilson.

A nomad both geographically and musically, he writes from the heart eschewing any specific genre and with an eclecticism that has seen him compared to John Martyn, Van Morrison and Tom Waits.

The Water Of Leith, his fourth studio album, has been praised to the rafters and was hailed by The Skinny magazine as their Scottish Album Of The Year. The album’s twelve new songs address themes of love, loss, travel, home, accepting the past and embracing the future.

Blue Rose Code were recently featured on Loose Ends (BBC Radio 4), the esteemed Quay Sessions (BBC Radio Scotland) was nominated for Scots Singer Of The Year in the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards, won Scottish Album of the Year and was listed as one of the Albums of the Year by The Skinny and No Depression respectively.

Reviews

“An astonishingly accomplished, pure and sincere record celebrating the next chapter, and the happiness and success that this ever-improving, undeniable talent rightfully deserves.”

The Skinny

“It doesn’t need categorisation, does it? It’s just great music, beautiful music, music to make you think, and to lose yourself in. All I know is, this album makes my heart swell. Filled with emotion and yearning and exploration of Scotland inside and out, it’s a splendid edifice. Here’s to its architect!”

Ian Rankin

“For those of you that long for Van Morrison to return to his days of Caledonian Soul or miss the late John Martyn, just switch your affections to Ross Wilson. ”
