SCOTTISH SONGWRITING SENSATION SHARES NEW SINGLE ‘SO I’VE BEEN TOLD’
EMOTIVE, RESONANT FOLK/POP FROM THE OUTER-HEBRIDES
Scottish songwriter Rosie H Sullivan has returned with new single ‘So I’ve Been Told’,
Growing up on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides but now based in Edinburgh, Sullivan crafts deeply personal and emotive indie folk, tackling personal growth and the existential transition of moving from an island to the mainland/city. Personal relationships also come into play in her remarkable songwriting, but it is her relationship with herself that sits at the core, culminating in a beautiful, resonant sound that finds as much inspiration in modern influences like Marling and Bridgers as it does the classics.
Last year saw Sullivan release ‘So It Is’, a understated demo recorded in her garden that amassed almost 400,000 streams without any backing or push from a label, and after a year of writing and honing her sound, she is starting to return with new music.
In September, Rosie emerged with ‘What A Life’, a statement of intent and the first look into a forthcoming debut project, seamlessly bringing her writing talents to the fore and unveiling a star in the making. Now she returns with new single ‘So I’ve Been Told’, released today via Nettwerk.
Another gorgeous cut filled with emotion, ‘So I’ve Been Told’ further showcases Sullivan’s truly unbelievable songwriting talent, as raw emotive energy combines with stripped back instrumentation, creating a relatable and immersive track underpinned by natural storytelling.
Speaking about ‘So I’ve Been Told’, Rosie H Sullivan said: “I’ve learned to be more empathetic and to appreciate the feelings of others. Every person’s life is different, and everyone has their own troubles and challenges, some of which we can’t see. I wanted to highlight that within this track”
More music is expected from Rosie H Sullivan soon,
