Influenced by John Martyn, Nick Drake and Neil Young, the 23-year-old's work nods to classic folk along with the more modern sounds of José González, Eaves and C. Duncan.
London based singer songwriter Westerman is a 23-year old storyteller - who weaves lyrics that drift between imagined people and real life. Influenced by John Martyn, Nick Drake and Neil Young, Westerman’s sound alludes to the greats, but the wordsmith pushes classic folk into 2016, referencing José González, Eaves and C. Duncan. Westerman will release his debut EP 'Harvard' this Spring
"Take heed of her flame red hair as the fiery Glaswegian unleashes her wrath and emotion on us all." (Louder than war)
Rosie Bans is a fierce Glaswegian independent artist. Throughout her intelligent sophisti-pop songwriting we are treated to tales of honesty, deceit, family arguments, identity crisis and romantic differences.
"Never lacking emotion, Rosie’s lyrics can often hide hard-hitting story lines". She pulls out what’s living just under the skin and drapes it over memorable choruses and rhythmic piano grooves for all to see.
Drawing inspiration from the songwriting skills of Imogen Heap, Amanda Palmer and Tori Amos Rosie is a far cry from the usual female, piano-pop singer-songwriters that dominate the industry today, Rosie is bulldozing her way through the crowds, kicking and swearing and screaming to be heard.
