Following their first independently released debut single, ‘Against the Odds / I’ll Make You Feel So Alive’, recorded and produced with renowned producer and engineer George Shilling (Primal Scream, Bernard Butler, Teenage Fanclub, Paul Weller), and their follow-up ‘All Her Words’ digital EP in 2015 and ‘On The Line’ EP in 2017, Rosetta Fire continued to take their eclectic sound to new fans in 2018 with the release of their single ‘Last Road To Rome’, followed up in early 2019 with ‘Shakedown’.
2021 has some interesting projects in the pipeline to be announced so keep checking back!
Ant Gliddon (vocals) and Jimmy Lapworth (guitar, vocals) have played together as Rosetta Fire since 2009, with a full band line up of Emily Knight (bass), Matt Ball (keys/guitar).
The band continue to receive airplay and endorsement from BBC Introducing in Coventry & Warwickshire, having been BBC Introducing ‘Band of the Month’ for the region and playing the BBC Introducing stage at Wychwood Festival in Cheltenham.
In November 2016, Rosetta Fire were the only band invited to play at TedX in Leamington Spa, part of a global network of events aimed at spreading good ideas through talks and performances (you can watch their performance here).
Their blend of tight harmonies, strong melodies and memorable lyrics with an added pinch of optimism are trademark Rosetta Fire, with each new song showing a flash of creative brilliance from a band with an unorthodox sound.
