Teddy Thompson’s new album HEARTBREAKER PLEASE is released on Thirty Tigers. Roseanne Reid will open for Teddy on all tour dates.
The daughter of The Proclaimers’ Craig Reid is a new voice in folk-roots music and her debut album was produced by Teddy himself, alongside other special guest appearances including her mentor, and one of her champions, Americana legend Steve Earle
When they draw the map of authentic Americana, historians may not previously have thought of using marker pins for the cities of Leith, Edinburgh and Dundee. Now they’ll have to, to record the rapid rise of Roseanne Reid.
Following a couple of acclaimed EP releases, Trails — the debut album by the Scottish troubadour — announces the official arrival of a singular new voice in folk-roots music. It was recorded in Brooklyn with an A-team of players expertly corralled by the album’s producer and an artist from fine musical stock of his own, Teddy Thompson.
Reid’s songs conjure more from less, exuding a quiet confidence and sparse authenticity that recalls some of the genre’s leading lights such as Gillian Welch and Lucinda Williams, but with a tone that belongs to Roseanne and no one else. No wonder, then, that Steve Earle has not only adopted Reid as a personal cause, but makes a guest appearance on the delightful Sweet Annie.
Roseanne recently released The September Tapes, recorded whilst she was in Nashville performing at the Americana Fest. The EP includes an original composition Couldn’t Wish More For You, her version of You Are My Sunshine and a cover of Malibu.
‘Reid has clearly made members of folk-rock royalty sit up and take notice early in her career with her songs which are full of bluesy southern soulful stock, complemented by Reid’s husky voice and simple but effective guitar playing’
