On My Mind

Rosie Frater-Taylor

“‘On My Mind’ is singer-songwriter, Rosie Frater-Taylor’s debut album. To listen to these beautifully crafted pop song structures, after hearing her play live, only re-affirmed what I already know. ‘In A Dream’ is the perfectly formed song - strange, knowing chord changes and a strong sure melody, marks Rosie as a unique, immensely accessible new voice. The banked-up vocals, Rosie’s creative, honest and highly musical guitar accompaniment, and heart-stoppingly fresh lyrics, echoes an important legacy of singer/songwriters from Janis Ian, through Joni and Tracey Chapman to the denser, jazzier roster- where Me’shell Ndegeocello, Rebecca Martin and Emily King hold court. Superb, surprising and highly enjoyable, this is a cracking debut from this new young artist" Ian Shaw, Sept 2018
