Artist Spotlight: Blue Roses

Sometime in between preparing materials for and building my ark during the Great Flood of Atlanta this fall, I stumbled upon the ethereal vocal stylings of Laura Groves, also known as Blue Roses. Now that Autumn is in full swing here in Georgia, Blue Roses’ self-titled debut appears to be the perfect soundtrack to such drizzly days.

It’s often said that it takes a village to raise a child, but in this case it took a village to record an album. The Yorkshire native gathered family, friends, and neighbors together to provide instrumentation and backing vocals. A local millionaire was so taken by her mission, that he offered to provide Groves a concert grand piano for the recording process. After much persistence, the record was picked up by the Beggars Group and is now for sale via XL Recordings.

More on Blue Roses can be found on her website.
