Blue Roses (aka Yorkshire singer/songwriter Laura Groves) began writing songs at the age of 17. Groves is proficient on both guitar and piano, and her fluid vocals, dreamlike imagery, and serpentine melodies have drawn comparisons to everyone from venerated songstresses Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush to highly lauded contemporaries like Joanna Newsom and Bat for Lashes. Her eponymous self-produced debut was recorded "guerilla"-style in multiple homes, bedrooms, and baths, as well as on a prized Steinway in a local piano shop before the ivory was whisked away to entertain wealthy denizens of a posh hotel. Blue Roses was released on XL Recordings in April 2009. ~ James Christopher Monger
