Roddy Woomble

The Idlewild frontman in an intimate solo gig.

Having toured the world as frontman of Scottish indie giants, Idlewild, acclaimed songwriter Roddy Woomble recently toured the UK in celebration of the 10-year anniversary of this debut solo album, My Secret Is My Silence.

Having grown up between America, France and the UK, and lived in Glasgow and New York, Roddy now lives on Mull in the Western Isles of Scotland, from where he hosts the annual Iona Village Hall Music Festival and has recently published Instrumentals, a collection of words, lyrics and photographs from tours fronting Idlewild, critically acclaimed solo albums, and Roddy’s life in the Scottish Hebrides.

Having established himself as a leading voice in the thriving British contemporary indie folk music scene, Roddy has recently taken a darker, more lo-fi direction, held together by his trademark poetic lyrics, “evocative vocals and consummate gift for a tune.”
