BLUES ROSES is 21 year old singer Laura Groves, and a shifting cast of musicians. Recorded in Laura?s tiny home town of Shipley (Yorkshire), the debut finds Laura?s haunting voice arranged amidst rich and varied instrumental textures. Much of the album was recorded in a piano shop (using a Steinway destined for a local hotel) because she "couldn't afford to actually buy one". One track features a choir of friends recorded in a local cafe. Elsewhere, living rooms and local churches were turned in to makeshift studios. At heart, Groves is an old-school songwriter and storyteller. From soaring folk to dramatic peaks; it?s a personal and heartfelt self-produced debut, a compelling and warm introduction to a major talent, who is already gaining a huge amount of coverage in U.K music press. "Blue Roses" is a must for fans of JONI MITCHELL, KATE BUSH, NEW BUFFALO, JOANNA NEWSOM and BJORK.
