“Ros is a highly talented performer and collaborator. It is always a complete pleasure to work with her. She consistently brings interesting and exciting ideas to each and every session. Whether we’re working together in the same room or if we’re collaborating remotely I get the same sense of her inventiveness and high quality musicianship. I’m looking forward to when I get the next chance to work with her again.” – Thom Robson, Producer, BMG Production Music
