The Rosellys

"From genial acoustic country to contemporary bluegrass to thoughtful balladry and cajun, The Rosellys play music that's best described as Americana good 'n' true"

(Folk n Roots)


The Rosellys are a five piece Americana band from Bristol signed to Clubhouse Records. Regular tours to America clearly influence their song writing and live performances with close comparisons made to artists such as Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings to name a few.


The Band formed when Rebecca (guitar/vocals) met Simon (guitar/vocals/fiddle) in 2005. They've toured extensively across the UK, Australia and America - notably the Southern States where San Antonio, Texas has become their second home. Allan (pedal steel/accordian/dobro) joined the band in 2006 - recording on all of their albums to date including Drive Through The Night (2006), One Way St (2008) and Two Much Like Trouble (2011).

Drew (drums) joined the band in 2013 followed by Matt (bass) in 2015 creating a powerful Alt-Country sound.


The Rosellys have performed live on BBC Radio, KSYM Radio (USA), UKCountryRadio.com and at various festivals including Chepstow Folk Festival, FactoberFest, Worcester Music Festival, Crawley Folk Festival, Tingestock, Lazy Bishops Festival, The Woodzie Festival (New Braunfels, USA) and Maverick Country Music Festival, winning their song writing competition in 2010. Venues played include The Musician (Leicester), The Grain Barge (Bristol), The Canteen (Bristol), The Tower of Song (Birmingham), Casbeers (San Antonio, USA), Floores Country Store (Helotes, USA), The Cove (San Antonio, USA), Come Down And Meet The Folks (London), Enochs (Monroe, USA), Donn's Depot (Austin, USA)

Capitol Theatre (Tamworth, Australia) and the world famous Aubade Theatre (Lecompte, USA).

"Hailing from the UK, The Rosellys are really quite an exceptional band that proves the British country music scene is by no means dead and buried"

(Maverick Magazine)

Rebecca and Simon have been lucky enough to record guitar, backing vocals and fiddle for their favourite UK based country rock band (and label-mates) 'The Redlands Palomino Company' on their third album 'Don't Fade', and also on their latest CD 'Broken Carelessly'. Hannah Elton-Wall (Redlands Palomino Co) blessed The Rosellys third album 'Two Much Like Trouble' with beautiful backing vocals and The Rosellys are very excited to have Hannah back in the studio for their new album 'The Granary Sessions'. Her husband Alex Elton-Wall (also Redlands Palomino Co) has recorded and co-produced The Rosellys new album due for release later this year
