With a long Philadelphia based and intwined in that city’s experimental and D.I.Y. community, Rosali released her third album, No Medium, in May last year and it was one of our very faves of the year. A generally loose and alive, country-rock feel, well balanced with sparser, folkish numbers. Rosali’s voice sounds amazing all through and the songs are heartfelt and relatable. It’s proper good.
Previous collaborators include Mary Lattimore, Sarah Louise, Mike Polizze (Purling Hiss), Mike Sobel, Jayson Gerycz (Cloud Nothings) and Charlie Hall from The War On Drugs who along with J Mascis and The Weather Station Rosali has opened for on tour. A collective stamp of approval right there.

She’s a regular co-host of The Guilty Feminist Podcast, the host and creator of The Hoovering Podcast and you hear her regularly on BBC R4’s News Quiz and Now Show.
Spiritual enquiry meets high-octane observational comedy as the ‘Taskmaster’ survivor, multi-award-winner and “No More Jockeys” cult leader attempts to cram a couple of years of pathological overthinking into an evening of stand-up. Maybe we’ll even solve the huge problem. Doubt it, though.
