Our feature act this week is Rosie Smith. Born in Glasgow, Rosie returned to her parents’ native Edinburgh a few years ago for university, and finally got around to her longtime goal of learning to play the guitar. Rosie’s first Out of the Bedroom performance was also her open mic debut, back in February, with her first three original songs. She has since expanded her repertoire of melancholy songs, often reminiscent of the sad Scottish folksongs, which she is also a keen performer of. Rosie’s other main influences are Joan Baez, Simon and Garfunkel, and Billy Bragg. Most of her music centres around a poignant and mournful expression of love, heartbreak, and healing.

OOTB #675 took place on 6th September. Photos from the evening can be found on our Facebook page. Line up was: James Igoe, Suzanne Dyson, Danny Emerson, Tina Louise Avery, Rosie Smith and feature act Gareth Herron.

Callum’s heartfelt songs take their cues from Cash, Waits and Cave as well as more modern influences like Chris Stapleton and Colter Wall, all with his own alternative twist. Callum says: I’ve written songs, on and off all of my life, from punk and metal through to folk and country and finally found something I’m comfortable with – honest songs, warts and all. I’m looking forward to releasing my debut six-track mini album in September 2018 but, until then, hope to share it live wherever I can.”
“Callum has a lovely voice, very well suited to the songs he writes.” [Leith Folk Club]
“Conjured up images of muggy nights on the street corners of New Orleans and the neon-lit honky-tonks in Nashville.” [Club Nitty Gritty]
“Callum was a top quality addition to the evening and I look forward to hearing a lot more from him” [Out of the Bedroom]

Scott Candlish, our excellent host for the evening, introduced our first act Matthew Mcghie, making his OOTB debut. Matthew was an innovative performer with an impressive vocal dynamic range. ‘Open’ showcased his high-pitched, guttural singing while telling an aching story of goodbyes which kept me intrigued from start to finish.  ‘Love’ was written in the last week and hinted at an unhappy experience (sample lyric: “you will suffocate until you drown”). Again, he used his voice as a powerful instrument and this was deeply affecting. Read the remainder of this entry »
