The Rosadocs

Keelan, 20, from Clay Cross has been writing songs for several years and took inspiration from his childhood and his former school Tupton Hall when it came to creating Oak Tree.

He said: "I wrote the song about getting older but reminiscing about when you were younger. One of the lines we repeat is 'do you recall, we had it all? And other points are a little more down to earth such as 'jumpers down as goal posts, making tea and eating toast.

"The name itself comes from memories of swinging on a rope school and also my school, Tupton Hall, had an oak tree as their logo."

Oak Tree will be available to stream on a number of platforms including Spotify, Deezer, iTunes, Apple Music and YouTube from today (Friday).

Oak Tree is out on Friday

The Rosadocs performed a live acoustic session for the Derbyshire Times last Friday, which you can see in full here.

The single will be available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon Music
