Rowdy Woombles’s biog and other interesting facts!

Roddy Woomble Pure RecordsBorn in 1976 in the west of Scotland, Roddy Woomble travelled extensively through his childhood, living in France and the United States before settling in Edinburgh to study photography, where he met his Idlewild band mates. After stints in both London and New York City, Roddy now lives in Glasgow.

Idlewild are well known for their musical journey and evolvement, from the loud abrasive punk rock of their early records to the country and folk leanings of their last offering – 2005’s ‘Warnings/Promises’ (which saw them headline the second stage at the Cambridge Folk Festival). Always very vocal about his love of traditional Scottish folk music as well as groups such as Fairport Convention and the Incredible String Band, Roddy has decided to take time out from Idlewild to collaborate on an album’s worth of songs that take these influences and mix them with Idlewild’s trademark soaring melodies and thoughtful lyrics.
