Rosedale Crossing was born on the 4th May 2006 at Quad Studios, Friday Street, Leicester, UK.

Early writing sessions suggested an acoustic-based approach without the blues-exclusivity upon which previous bands were focused. Whilst there remained an overall desire to keep a jam-based feel to the project, more structured songs were needed to complement the new sound and the band spent nearly nine months in weekly rehearsals prior to performing live for the first time. The resulting output is a mixture of country, bluegrass, blues, americana and good old English folk. Pigeon-hole it if you can...

Rosedale Crossing was born on the 4th May 2006 at Quad Studios, Friday Street, Leicester.

Jon, Bob and Dunc had been playing together for the previous 6 years in blues-rock outfit SoulMonkey. Upon the split of that band, due to Jim relocating and Craig joining a touring stage show, the three remaining Monkeys decided not to abandon the project altogether but to find a new bass player with whom to move in a new direction.

Early writing sessions suggested an acoustic-based approach without the blues-exclusivity upon which SoulMonkey was focused. Whilst there remained an overall desire to keep a jam-based feel to the project, more structured songs were needed to complement the new sound and the band spent nearly nine months in weekly rehearsals prior to performing live for the first time. After a slightly false start with Lawrence Oates on the four string, a second stint by ex-member Craig and various other butterfly-like creatures, the band is now a three piece with occasional collective deputising from friends and relations.

The resulting output is a mixture of country, bluegrass, blues, americana and good old English folk. Pigeon-hole it if you can...
