Music Monday: Blue Rose Code

Blue Rose Code is singer/songwriter Ross Wilson. His first single, the doubled a-sided 'Whitechapel/Love', was released on Crystal Palace-based indie label Ho Hum Records, and he is currently finishing off his debut album 'North Ten' due for release by the lablel in early autumn.

Originally from Edinburgh, Ross now lives in Brockley and says 'I love it here, notably Nunhead Cemetery (complete with the Scottish Martyrs memorial), Telegraph Hill park, Hilly Fields, all the green bits (we've got two dogs and I like to run). But then the Brockley Mess, Hill Station cafe, all the junk shops and the endlessly cheerful community spirit is what makes it feel very much like home already (i've only been down here three months)'.

Among the musicians he has been working with on the album is famous bassist Danny Thompson, well known for his work with Pentangle, John Martyn, Richard Thompson and many others (didn't realize until I checked his biog that Thompson actually started out in the 1950s playing in a big band at the Locarno Ballroom in Streatham - he grew up in Battersea).
