One Way St

by The Rosellys

Influenced by country, bluegrass, roots, folk, cajun and blues, this UK based band are already making their mark on the increasingly popular British Americana scene. Extensive trips to the southern states of America have clearly influenced The Rosellys songwriting, leading to a combination of energetic upbeat numbers and melodic songs that are often compared to Alison Krauss and Emmylou Harris.

Maverick Issue 81 April 2009

The Rosellys, ONE WAY ..ST...
Self Released.
4.5 out of 5.

A very accomplished album that contains a number of extremely fine harmonies and spot-on guitar playing.
Hailing from the UK, the Rosellys really are quite an exceptional band that proves the British country music scene is by no means dead and buried. With only Simon Kelly and Rebecca Rosewell in the band, it is quite astonishing that just two people are responsible for this sublime and quite brilliant eleven track album. In the summer of 2006 they completed a nine-week tour playing coast to coast in America in a VW Campervan and judging by this album they must have brought down the house.

With lead vocals provided by Rebecca, hers is a voice, which sounds very similar to the Haley Sisters and that is never a bad thing. Caught Me At A Bad Time has a very fast beat to it which you could easily be forgiven for tapping those toes and dancing with your partner to. You Stole My Heart has the most country sound to it, with a pedal steel accompanying a very country drum beat. As soon as the tender and beautiful sounds of the pedal steel start the track, Rebecca’s vocals kick in which sound a lot like a lower-in-tone Alison Krauss. As with the first track mentioned, you could be forgiven for dancing to this track in the jolliest of manners.

Having seen the Haley Sisters perform at the hugely enjoyable Maverick Festival in August 2008, any song that sounds like them will always be enjoyed immensely by this reviewer. American Dream has a very optimistic sound which must have been written whilst they were touring across the States in 2006. The dreamy and
hopeful lyrics are sung to such a level, which makes me want to listen to more
of their work. Only Way She Knows has a catchy beat that instantly grabs your attention. Rebecca’s vocals are so strong it makes you wonder who the heck this singer is, as well who is providing the acoustic and electric guitar strumming.

After initially believing this band to hail from across the Atlantic, it was great to read that they are from the ....UK..... With some excellent strumming and vocals only surpassed by a handful of artists, this really is a band going places and cannot see why that nine-week tour of America couldn’t be extended to much, much longer. The Rosellys really are a band brimming with talent.


Latest Review from ’Country Routes’
Rebecca Rosewell, lead vocals, guitar and Simon Kelly, backing vocals, guitar, electric guitar and fiddle are The Rosellys.

The Nottingham based, singer/songwriters, lay down a string of memorable recordings on, One Way Street, at Reservoir studios, London

Help from Chris Clarke, double bass, percussion and studio engineer, Alan Kelly, pedal steel and squeeze box and Helena Rosewell, cello, effectively tie songs together, with emphasis clearly placed on Rebecca\'s atmospheric vocals.

Only Way She Knows, is the prime cut, with a crash hot bass, swinging to, Wake Me Up, a soaring, heart – tugger.

Home With You, 2- steps to, Rescue Me and zippy thought provoker, Caught Me At A Bad Day.

Mary, portrays the sadness of losing someone close, featuring some nice steel touches.

You Stole My Heart, slides to a perfect melody on, Mr Man. A possible self biography, American Dream, oozes song writers hopes.

Penultimate ballad, Moon and Stars, glides to closer, Redwoods. Tinges of Cajun lays the base for love on the open road.

With an overall acoustic feel, One Way Street, is simply magnificent. Perfect musically, Rebecca Rosewell\'s vocals rise and fall, telling stories, her way.

The album steps outside the box, of what we traditionally expect, but the step is a giant leap towards a true Brit identity of music. Does it work? Yes

Only Way She Knows, is now playing at

Latest Review From Americana-UK 9 out of 10
The Rosellys “One Way Street” (Independent 2008)

A Roselly by any other name would smell as sweet

What Shakespeare meant when he wrote the uncorrupted version of the line above was that had Romeo not been a Montague his love affair with the Capulet Juliet wouldn’t have raised eyebrows (or indeed hackles) anywhere. Similarly if The Rosellys were from some southern united state (rather than Nottingham) then they would be walking down Nashville mainstreet right now having their pick of producers and recording facilities. As it is when you listen to this debut release you can’t help thinking that if only their music could come to the right ears (and they had the requisite, essentially American, credentials) they would be huge. As it is they probably have only come to the attention of their friends, family and committed local followers (as is the way with these things). Oh, and of course, me and you. And what a treat we have found – a beautifully subtle and well judged acoustic jaunt through the back lanes and by ways (and one way systems) of British Americana. In another world they live in Laurel Canyon, she (Rebecca Rosewell) as Joni Mitchell and he (Simon Kelly) as James Taylor. Back down to Earth though and these Rosellys really do smell (and sound) sweet despite our more prosaic settings. Well worth sourcing a copy of this record – cynical hearts prepare to be melted.
