You may not realise it, but you’ve probably seen Pete Roe’s face more than once. He has been a regular feature of Laura Marling’s live band for quite some time, and last Autumn played the roles of both supporting act and roadie for brothers-in-the-folk Mumford & Sons.
With the support of the fine fellows at the Communion label, Pete is stepping out by himself with brand new EP ‘The Merry-Go-Round’, to be released on 7th June. Full tracklisting is as follows:
2. Oh Susannah
3. Underneath The Apple Tree
4. The Merry-Go-Round
To whet your appetite for what will be a remarkably poignant cluster of songs rich with storytelling, ‘Bellina’ is available as a free Mp3 download right here.
He’ll be hitting the road with his band in June, where you’ll be able to hear the EP and other gems played live:
