Rosco Levee & The Southern Slide! Cast your vote here!
Rosco Levee is a singer songwriter and guitarist from Kent, who has been playing the guitar for the last 23 years...and he’s only 28 now! Music and writing songs is in his blood; every day he composes a new song, a set of lyrics or a new melody to work with.
Spurred on by his good friend, the notable singer songwriter Pete Molinari, Rosco has gone back to his roots where he was brought up on a diet of blues, country and rock 'n' roll. Artists such as Robert Johnson, Delaney Bramlett and Elvis, and bands such as The Allman Bros, Rolling Stones and the Band are major influences.
"FINAL APPROACH TO HOME" is the debut album from Rosco Levee & The Southern Slide. The fantastic touring musicians he works with are, Lee Wilson on keys, Simon Gardiner on bass/vocals, Andy Hayes on guitars/mandolin and long-time friend David Tettmar on the kit/vocals. The Southern Slide are all great players and know how to bring the crowd to a frenzy, boiling over like a gumbo melting-pot from the Mississippi.
2012 saw them release their debut album on their own label to critical acclaim, so much so that they scored a world-wide distribution deal with Cadiz Music (Universal), toured in Norway and a short Holland tour, and receive BBC airplay and interviews in the UK as well as the US.
Even Glen Campbell mentioned these guys in interview in Nashville, as ones to watch!
Rosco Levee & the Southern Slide are a proper old school country, blues, and southern rock-band, combining all these styles with funk, soul, gospel and a lot of rock 'n' roll!
You need to see these guys live, the whole place will be dancing the night away!
