Beautiful songs, a genuine pleasure to have been involved' -Danny Thompson Following the death of the grandmother who raised him, Ross escaped to London, dogged by alcoholism and addiction and despite his troubles, Blue Rose Code was formed and soon started to get rave reviews for early live performances. Through 2009 and 2010 Blue Rose Code shared the stage with many celebrated writers including Bert Jansch, Kris Drever, King Creosote, John Renbourn and James Yorkston. Unable to shake off his addictions, Ross gave up playing music altogether until sobriety and redemption came unexpectedly, in Brooklyn, NY. Having been persuaded by friends to once again pick up his guitar, Ross played to small but rapt audiences in Williamsburg before returning to the UK where Blue Rose Code has since enjoyed a steady snowballing of new fans and momentum. In early 2012, now healthy and with a stunning batch of new songs, Ross was encouraged by his publishers Ho-Hum Music to record a debut album.
Blue Rose Code were then chosen by hipster clothing brand Aubin & Wills as the subject of a documentary 'The Modern Craftsman' about the recording of his debut 'North Ten' in Somerset and a recent promo film for the brand featuring Alex James (Blur) aired online soundtracked by Blue Rose Code.
