Powered by Audioscrobbler™De Rosa are a band from Bellshill, Scotland. The band was formed by main songwriter Martin John Henry in the early 2000’s. They are a five piece (brothers James and Neil Woodside on bass and drums respectively, with Chris Connick on guitar and Andrew Bush on piano). Signed to Glasgow's Chemikal Underground Records they released 'Mend' - their debut album - in June 2006. During 2008, De Rosa released a new track free for download every month with the resulting collection of 12 songs being named "Appendices." Their second album, 'Prevention,' was released in March 2009, also on Chemikal Underground.

De Rosa are noted for their use of indie rock guitar-based compositions combined with Henry's personal lyrics sung in a Scottish accent. Henry's lyrics referenced the social history of his home county of Lanarkshire. Although heavily influenced by the alternative rock music of the 1980s and 1990s, De Rosa's sound also makes reference to other sub-genres of music, with elements of slowcore, Scottish folk and electronic music. Later in their development, the band began to use more synthesisers and drum machines in their live set, their sound moving away from the guitar-based rock of their debut material towards a fusion of electronic and traditional styles.

De Rosa disbanded in May 2009 then reformed in 2012 with a view to release a third album in 2013.
