Rosie Jones grew up in a field in Devon where there wasn't really anything to do except sit around in her room and dream of being a rock star. Listing some of her influences as “good music, kittens, mittens, cows, tea, wellies and anything with banjo", Rosie and her band - The Mystery Machine - create an eclectic mix of delightful, acoustic post-folk that just begs to be listened to on a sunny day, with a mug of cinnamon tea.
"I like Rosie Jones a lot. I can identify with her. Her scars are real, like mine. Her songs are real accounts of normal hurt and normal joy. Sometimes she is like a reluctant, melancholic apology. Sometimes she is like a fountain of gladness. She has an acerbic tongue and a heart of gold. All the better then that she is a great writer and a great performer." Eddie Cooney, who writes for R2/Rock'n'Reel magazine
This girl has a truly infectious stage presence and is a credit to North Devon"
