‘A folk duo whose voices combine to create a seamless flow of rich, harmonic beauty’ ~ Americana UK.
Since their first gig together in 2018, indie Folk/Americana duo Roswell has won Purbeck Rising 2018, had their debut single ‘Heaven Knows’ selected for Fatea’s Winter Showcase, and released their debut EP ‘Remedy’, recorded at the Roundhouse in London. The duo – singer-songwriters Jasmine Watkiss and Zoe Wren – are fresh from an exciting 2019, including appearing at festivals in the UK and Switzerland, and completing their second EP with Dan Wilde at Recordings, which they will be touring in February.
“One young Nashville singer is taking a big step toward distinguishing herself in the enormous pool of talent living and making music there. Ali Sperry, a modest young singer/songwriter with a personality that comes over with sweet earnestness in such a competitive world, has an ambition. That goal is to reach listeners by creating lyrics and melodies, with effective production values, that will resonate with listeners in powerful but varied ways.”
“As the presence of 70s jangle amongst the would-be modern singer-songwriter grows more and more prevalent, Nashville’s Ali Sperry has chosen to go the way of the Collins, Guthrie, and Denny. Rather than join the jangle-fray, Sperry chose instead to revisit that lost age of genre-medling magnificence on her upcoming LP Crooked Feelings. Its airy and open, but not so nebulous that Sperry’s musical and lyrical intentions become indeterminate and lazily referred to as “singer-songwriter” fodder.”–Sean McHugh, Lockeland Springsteen”Ms. Sperry’s vocals take the center stage throughout, with a warm Karen Carpenter-esque purity. Its familiar and inviting.”–Beverly Napalm, The Noise
