With a clear sense of purpose, 22-year-old singer, songwriter & guitarist Rosie Frater-Taylor blurs the lines between jazz, folk, pop & soul. Think Joni Mitchell meets George Benson, Lewis Taylor teams up with Emily King or a female version of John Mayer!
The native Londoner started playing drums at the age of 8, picking up the guitar and ukulele soon after. She spent her early teens discovering her musician parents’ record collection, an eclectic mix of artists : Zero 7, Tania Maria, Seal, Pat Metheny and more. She began exploring her own love of songwriting, jazz and alternative harmony studying at both the Roundhouse and Royal Academy Of Music.
Partial to a DIY-slant, Rosie set off laying out multi-layered guitar-based demos on Cubase at the age of 16. These would eventually become her self-produced debut album ‘On My Mind’ (2018), a unique collection of songs which garnered praise from 6 Music’s Tom Robinson, Radio 1’s Abbie McCarthy, Becca Stevens “badass”, with Jazzwise Magazine hailing her “one to watch”.
“an artist I’ve fallen in love with, musically speaking”
– Gilles Peterson, 6Music
