Familiar to many thousands of music fans as the front man in the Scottish rock band Idlewild, Roddy Woomble is also a celebrated solo songwriter & performer.
In 2016, Roddy will be celebrating the 10 year anniversary of his debut solo album ‘My Secret is my Silence’ with a special UK tour and song book. The album debuted at number 1 in the UK folk charts back in 2006 and was highly praised (5* in the Sunday Times). It was through word of mouth though that the album became something of a ‘cult classic’.
Roddy’s usual solo band featuring Hannah Fisher (violin & vocals), Craig Ainslie (bass) and Sorren Maclean (guitar, vocals) and Danny Grant (Drums) help to create the perfect backdrop for Roddy’s poetic lyrics, blending touches of country and folk to a set of poignant songs.
Lyrics rich with imagery and consistent touring have won Roddy many thousands of fans all over the world and he is widely regarded as one of Scotland 's finest songwriters.
