These days, Stu Larsen lives out of a suitcase. You might find the nomadic musician somewhere between his native Australia, Spain or Japan, before he picks up and sets off for the next destination. In support of his 2014 debut album Vagabond, Larsen brought his music to the masses with a spate of global tours which gained him international recognition. Along the way Larsen began collating ideas for his 2017 follow up album Resolute, due for release July 21st. The album then came together in various locations around the globe, from a cottage in Scotland, an apartment in Spain, and an old army bunker back in Australia. Larsen shares an important message in Resolute. “I hope everyone can…” he leaves off. “Too often, we just switch off and don’t think enough. Hopefully, these songs can spark something positive in listeners. Live simply. Don’t worry about the excesses. I hope everyone can come together around this music.”
Roanoke is a rising Folk/Americana band based out of Nashville, TN. Roanoke uses their undeniable musical chemistry to create a unique and captivating sound full of cultural influences, roots instrumentation, and catchy, memorable melodies. Their self-titled debut album Roanoke is an invigoratingly classic Americana album filled with modern yet vintage tunes that make the audience sit and listen to a back-porch tale in true Americana fashion. Roanoke has struck a balance between the narrative songwriting of folk, the ear candy appeal of pop, and the roots authenticity of country music. With over 500,000 plays on Spotify, and their energetic, moving live show, they are set to shake the alternative Americana Folk scene in no time.
"It's unusual to find an album that seems such a timeless treasure the first time out, but Roanoke has done exactly that. One can only eagerly anticipate what's yet to come. Suffice it to say that for now, this is one of the great discoveries of the year." -No Depression
