'Dust Off' is a culmination of over ten years of writing and gigging through life's ups, downs and maintaining the ethos of when things go wrong, 'pick yourself up and dust off'.
Available now on Spotify, Amazon Music, iTunes and the Google Play Store.
'There's a country vibe that runs through the album, and there is something of Tracy Chapman about the superb opener 'Try', which is underpinned, as are many of the tracks, by Ian Holleran's percussion. The insistent, low-level thrum is like the album's heartbeat, which works well with Ball's masterful guitar playing and effortless voice.'
All songs written and performed by Roseanna Ball. Additional vocals and instrumentation provided by Ian Holleran and Mike Lake.
Recorded and Mixed by Lee Crossman at The Ariel Studios, Ilfracombe, North Devon.

Roseanna Ball's long awaited debut solo album 'Time'.
Available now on Amazon, iTunes and the Google Play Store.
"The arrangements are simple and effective and the singing energetic and passionate on Roseanna Ball's album Time, the name of the catchy opening song."
- Martin Chilton, telegraph.co.uk
"This is an intensely personal album of songs. As we know time waits for no-one and this is one singer who is determined to make her mark. Her vocal range is impressive - stretching from the powerful urgings in the title track to the subtlety found in the moving Too Soon, the most beautiful song to be found here."
- John Knighton, fatea-records.co.uk
"This is an album with a palpable magnetism - a voice that takes the songs from warm and mellow to powerful and moving, instrumentation that augments but never interferes. There’s an indefinable something that certain artists bring to songs that make you ‘feel’ every word, Roseanna belongs to that select group."
- Charlie Elland, folkwords.com
All songs written and performed by Roseanna Ball. Additional vocals provided by Neville Pope.

Roseanna Ball's last album under the name 'Roholio'. Roseanna Ball on lead vocals, classical guitar, acoustic guitar, banjo and mandolin.
"Geography by Roseanna (acoustic and electric guitars, banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, piano) is one of those quietly engaging albums that will hopefully gain the recognition it really deserves."
- Charlie Elland, folkwords.com
"It's a direct, accessible, honest-to-goodness effort on which Roseanne plays guitar, mandolin and banjo and sings a load of supporting harmonies, to bring to life a healthy batch of ten new self-penned songs."
- David Kidman, fatea-records.co.uk
“Geography gave me a very nice 40 minute listen, not once but twice. To me it sounds fresh and warm.”
- Jeremy Vine, BBC Radio 2
