The Rosie Taylor Project are Sam, Jonny, Nick, Sophie, John and Joel. 6 people with an exceptional view of the world. Seen through the windows of cafes and from the bottom of wine glasses. Romanticised yes, but never saccharine.
Lyricist Jonny Davies evokes a timelessly poetic view of the world - their songs are heartfelt, observations of everyday life delivered with an air of wit and honesty that owes as much to Woody Allen and J.M.Coetzee as it does to his musical contemporaries. Their sound evokes the gentle qualities of Iron & Wine and Frightened Rabbit with a nod to the melancholic atmospherics of The National and The Twilight Sad.
Formed in 2006, and signed to Bad Sneakers in 2007, their well received debut album, ‘This City Draws Maps’, was released in April 2007 on Bad Sneakers Records, home of The Sugars, The Lodger and The Old Romantic Killer Band and previously home of the acclaimed Wild Beasts. The band have been shut up in their basement rehearsal room writing and readying new songs for the follow up to 'This City Draws Maps' due later this year. 'Lovers or something like it' is the first glimpse of this new material.
The band have previously supported Midlake, Slow Club, My Latest Novel and Jeffrey Lewis and are about to embark on a mini UK tour to promote their new single as well as high profile slots at the Sellindge and Moor Music festivals to come this summer.
“…the kind of record that you immediately like”
– Drowned in Sound
“The Rosie Taylor Project - playful... bashful... soulful...never woeful...WONDERFUL!"
– Marc Riley, 6 Music
"simply a stunning piece of work. Melancholic, delicate, beautiful - the list of superlatives could stretch on but it would be entirely superfluous. And that would be the polar opposite of this record"
