"...audible magic woven with voice, fiddle & guitar...Rise Aurora is an impressive debut album by this young songwriter who has risen through the folk circuit to become a BBC Young Folk Awards finalist. This album shows startling originality... smooth & infectious fiddle lines, forcing the listeners to tap their feet... a perfect balance between delicate singing and driving fiddle playing... An entertaining and thoroughly engaging release, Rise Aurora is definitely a successful first album for Rosie Hodgson!"

"Somewhere North is a beautifully balanced 4 track EP from BBC Young Folk Musician Award nominee Rosie Hodgson. This is an intimate collection of heartfelt songs, each based around Rosie’s superb vocals with a restrained instrumental accompaniment. Also featured on the EP are backing instrumentals from Martin Ruinet on mandolin.
Three of the songs are original compositions and these show a real songwriting talent, particularly on the poignant and reflective love song Need Not Declare which features some clever changes of vocal pace.
Liverpool Lullaby is another excellent, evocative and soothing piece while Somewhere North feels like a very personal piece of songwriting. Complementing the original material, the traditional The Snows They Melt is given a fresh a capella treatment. A compelling and skillfully assembled EP." – Bright Young Folk
