Blue Rose Code, aka acclaimed singer-songwriter Ross Wilson, has just released his new album, The Water Of Leith, out now on Navigator Records.
A nomad both geographically and musically, Ross writes from the heart eschewing any specific genre and the twelve new songs on The Water Of Leith, addressing themes of love, loss, travel, home, accepting the past and embracing the future, are painted with colours of folk, jazz, soul and pop; an eclecticism that has become a hallmark of Blue Rose Code and has seen him compared to John Martyn, Van Morrison and Tom Waits.
Blue Rose Code has been touring the album extensively, with the UK tour dates continuing as below:
Nov 13 Latest Music Bar, Brighton, UK
Nov 14 LAUNCH PARTY at Bush Hall, London, UK
Nov 16 The Met, Bury, UK
Nov 17 Roots Club, Doncaster, UK
Nov 24 Harbour Arts, Irvine, UK
Nov 25 Harbour Arts, Irvine, UK

In the space of a few short years and the release of well-received albums North Ten, The Ballads Of Peckham Rye, and And Lo The Bird Is On The Wing, Blue Rose Code has built a growing reputation as a powerful writer and performer, gaining extensive radio play and the praise of key broadcasters. Author Ian Rankin is also a fan and has written insightful sleeve notes for the new album.
