Over the course of four albums, Rozi Plain’s hypnotic, gently askew songs have steadily sauntered their way from her birthplace of Winchester, reverberated through the bustling Bristol DIY scene, to where they now emanate from London’s creative epicentre.
Each consecutive release has broached new sonic territory, whilst retaining a home-grown intimacy and a familial warmth of spirit.
Rozi has performed on festival main-stages (Glastonbury’s Park Stage, End of the Road, Green Man), and supported leading lights from the alt-folk world (Devandra Barnhart, James Yorkston, Beach House).
On Prize, her fifth long-player, released on Memphis Industries in January 2023, Rozi’s unique, heart-felt approach continues to prevail, marking her as one of our most innovative and engaging singer-songwriters. Two of the singles have featured on BBC 6 Music’s B-list and a number of sessions have been performed live for Marc Riley and Tom Ravenscroft.
At the core of Rozi’s idiosyncratic sound, there is a keening for simplicity; a recurring urge to strip things back to their essence, to reveal their innate beauty.
Rozi’s natural, unaffected vocal accompanied by the soft-thrum of an electric-guitar she built herself when first starting to play (a guitar she still uses to this day). Almost all of her songs have been initially composed with this instrument, although you’ll rarely hear it strummed or thrashed. Instead, chords are broken into cyclical patterns of plucked staccato figures with a shuddering slap-back delay.
The Guardian – 4/5 “mirage-like lyrics gently warped folk and nomadic jazz“
