Since their first gig together in March 2018, Folk/Americana duo Roswell has gone on to win the Purbeck Rising 2018 competition, have their debut single ‘Heaven Knows’ selected for Fatea’s Winter Showcase, and record their debut EP at the Roundhouse. Jasmine and Zoë have been combining their love of intricate vocal harmonies and folk music since they met at an open mic in Ely and are planning an exciting 2019 – including working on their next release and appearing at festivals from Swanage to Switzerland.
“The harmonies are tight and both Zoe Wren and Jasmine Watkiss have such a vocal range they can weave and swoop around each other in quite a breathtaking way.” Tony Birch
