Wandering Oak brings you:
• Rozi Plain • (Memphis Industries / Lost Map Records)
When Rozi Plain upped sticks from her hometown of Winchester, she settled in the West Country capital of Bristol. Here, she took musical inspiration from her job painting the ferries that bob along the city's main river artery, the Avon. Her songs possess a plucky sense of charisma and brilliantly capture life's ephemeral nature: each track a beautiful snapshot of fragility, intimacy and gentle melody. Together with her older brother Sam (aka Romanhead), and her pal Rachael Dadd, she was a founding member of the Cleaner Records collective, a loose assortment of musicians based in Bristol.
The unassuming charm of Rozi’s live show has led to tours across Europe, the UK & USA. Along the way she has traversed countries and continents together with such like-minded luminaries as Devendra Banhart, KT Tunstall, James Yorkston and Viking Moses, as well as many appearances at Green Man Festival and End Of The Road Festival and opening the Park Stage at Glastonbury Festival 2013. A BBC Radio 6 Music favourite, Rozi has perfomed numerous live sessions for Marc Riley and Lauren Laverne. Whether performing alone or with an assembly of her regular musical allies (including Frànçois and The Atlas Mountains, This Is The Kit, Rachael Dadd and Being There) her uncluttered songs and effortless hooks create a blissful, singular voice.
