Pete Roe is a highly respected musician, both by his peers in the London Folk scene (Laura Marling as a band member, Mumford & Sons, Ethan Johns) and US artists such as Ryan Adams. Whilst his guitar style owes much to British folk guitarists of the 1960’s such as Bert Jansch and John Martyn, his songwriting owes more to American songwriters such as Paul Simon, Neil Young and indeed Ryan Adams- whom he cites as an influence and now a fan.
‘Our Beloved Bubble’ will be released on Monday 6th May and features the full versions of recent double A-side taster ‘Midnight:Mystery’. The remainder of the album covers a broad range of themes, all highly evocative offerings which trawl Pete’s encounters, ruminations, pub studies, love and friendships; at times in awe, at times angry, and all set against rich, sometimes delicate musical backdrops. Accompanied by other transatlantic musical nomads Ross Holmes and Matt Menefee hailing from Nashville, the album’s final touches came from acclaimed producer Ethan Johns.
