Blue Roses is the musical project of Laura Groves, previously known just as Laura Groves.
She lives in the town of Shipley, United Kingdom. Here she writes songs for various instruments, some of which she can play and some of which she can’t (but tries to anyway), and watches the interesting folk go by. Laura’s live gigs are played with guitar and piano, and have included appearances with Final Fantasy, Jeremy Warmsley, Jeffrey Lewis and Tilly and the Wall. Projects include a contribution to the “50minutes” charity compilation alongside artists such as Daniel Johnston, Ladyfuzz and Emmy the Great.
Groves changed her name in November 2008, writing in her MySpace blog "As I've been recording and working on new things throughout the year I feel like I'm in a different place musically to when I started out, so it seemed appropriate to become something new".
She released her debut self-titled album in April 2009 on XL.
