Rozi Plain

ROZI PLAIN – “Joined Sometimes Unjoined”, out july 09th, 2012

Behold the wonderfully intimate and human song craft of Rozi Plain, born Rosalind Leyden in the leafy-greens of Winchester 26 years ago. Having moved to Bristol, set up the Cleaner Records collective with a collection of musical friends and family and released her debut album “Inside Over Here” on King Creosote’s Fence Records in late-2008, Rozi has been busy bringing her beautiful, enchantingly brittle and understated music to the people.

Whether alone with guitar or joined by an assembly of her regular co-conspirators (including François & The Atlas Mountains, This Is The Kit and Sleeping States, all of whom she also joins for their sets in a glorious musical swapping shop), her songs possess a certain fragile magnetism that can hush the gabblers in the drawing of a breath, and make any room seem like home.

The rare and humble pleasures of Rozi’s live show have led to tours across Europe, the UK & USA with notables including Devendra Banhart (who fell for “Inside Over Here” and named it one of his albums of last year) Michael Hurley, KT Tunstall, James Yorkston and Viking Moses, and appearances at festivals such as Green Man, End Of The Road, The Great Escape and Fence’s flagship event Homegame. Recordings have been tied to tape and tinkered with for her soon-to-follow second album, recent singles Humans and See My Boat have been BBC 6 Music favorites.

“Joined Sometimes Unjoined”, her second full-length, was mostly recorded in Toy box studios in Bristol. A lot of friends played on the record, François Marry (Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains), Kate Stables and Jesse Vernon (This Is The Kit), Rachael Dadd, Markland Starkie (Sleeping States) or Matthieu Hauquier (Botibol).

“Joined Sometimes Unjoined” is less “bedroomy” than her debut album, but still, Rozi wanted them to feel warm and approachable songs.
