Comparisons don''t come easily. The Guardian called Rosie''s sound a blend of "jazz, folk and torch song"; Q described it as "the sort of music Roni Size might be making if he''d discovered Joni Mitchell instead of drum machines. With Austrian co-writer Bernd Rest, "one of the most accomplished guitarists in Europe" (The Tip Sheet), and an amazing band,"the same inspired posse that recently brought Ronnie Scott''s its feet" (Straight No Chaser), Rosie Brown is carving out her own niche. At their south London studio, Brown and Rest have set up Stück Records, where they produced their critically acclaimed debut album By The Blue. The accomplished personnel on the album includes

Rosie Brown (vocals & guitar)
Bernd Rest (guitars)
Andy Hamill (double bass)
Marcus Cummins (soprano sax)
Paul May (drums)
Markus Marageter (keyboards)
