Familiar to thousands of music fans as the front man in cult Scottish rock band Idlewild, Roddy Woomble is also a celebrated solo songwriter and performer. A native of Irvine - small-town Scotland writ large - Roddy Woomble founded Idlewild in 1995, moving from an early punk-fuelled sound, that saw the band receive heavy rotation on BBC Radio 1, through sweeping melodic rock to rootsier, folky sparseness on their later albums. Idlewild notched up an impressive 13 UK Top 40 singles and two top 10 albums at a time when guitar music was on the wane commercially. Extending the softer lyrical vein of Roddy's songwriting, 2006 saw his first solo release, My Secret Is My Silence, win rave reviews across both the rock and folk press. He was also a key instigator behind the acclaimed 2007 album Ballads of the Book, bringing together leading Scottish poets and musicians to collaborate on new songs. Roddy went on to record Before The Ruin with Lau's Kris Drever and The Battlefield Band's John McCusker before making his latest album, The Impossible Song and Other Songs, on the Isle of Mull. Performing with his band, Roddy's live set features tunes from both his solo albums, Before the Ruin and several Idlewild numbers.
