Live At The Silver Building: Rosie Frater-Taylor | Royal Docks Originals
Rosie Frater-Taylor: Bloom21-year-old East London-based singer, songwriter and guitarist Rosie Frater-Taylor blurs the lines between jazz, folk, pop and soul. Think Joni Mitchell meets Pat Metheny, Lewis Taylor teams up with Emily King or a female version of John Mayer.
After picking up the guitar, ukulele and bass soon after, Rosie simultaneously studied with Tomorrow’s Warriors, NYJO the Royal Academy of Music and attended songwriting workshops at the Roundhouse. At 16, she started laying out multi-layered guitar-based demos on Cubase, which would eventually become her self-produced debut album ‘On My Mind’ (2018), a collection of songs which garnered praise from BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson “genuinely exceptional”, BBC Radio 1’s Abbie McCarthy “complex, jazzy, smooth, delicate”, songstress Becca Stevens “badass”, with Jazzwise Magazine declaring her “one to watch”.
Rosie has just released her new album ‘Bloom’ which sees her collaborate with Snowpoet’s Chris Hyson on two songs. Rosie blends adventurous songwriting with a whimsical pop sensibility, multi-layered acoustic soundscapes and virtuoso guitar skills, catching the attention of the likes of Gilles Peterson, Jordan Rakei and Michael League.
