Scottish singer and songwriter Roddy Hart 1st appeared around the scene along with his impartial release, House Tapes, in 2004. The collection, a range from some demonstration recordings, was solid enough that Hart quickly discovered himself on the air, and — moreover — asked to open up for the famous Kris Kristofferson around the latter’s tour of the uk. A deal quickly followed using the Vertical Information label, in addition to shows all around the globe, including halts in THE UNITED STATES, Japan (assisting the Garbage Can Sinatras), Spain, and Ireland. He also backed Deacon Blue and Eddi Audience on UK trips. His debut recording, Bookmarks, premiered in the united kingdom and america (within the U.S., it had been released around the Compass Information label) and presented guest places from these Kristofferson and Eddi Audience. He in addition has carried out some off-the-cuff recordings with alt-country luminary, Ryan Adams.
