We’re delighted to welcome Roddy Woomble back – this time, to YES!

With his enigmatic and poetic lyrics, warm baritone voice and consummate gift for a tune, Roddy Woomble is widely considered to be among Scotland’s best contemporary songwriters.

Over the sixteen albums that he has released (nine with his band Idlewild, and seven as a solo artist) he has traversed punk rock, chart bothering melodic rock, folk and most recently electronica, with his most recent project Almost Nothing. Each one delivered with the humble grace that he’s become known for.

Roddy’s upcoming record re-unites him with songwriting partner Sorren Maclean and was recorded with contributions from family and friends, in an old church on the Isle of Mull.
