Roesy’s music career kicked off at 17 when he signed to Warner Chappell, and between Dublin and London recorded, co-produced and released his first album Sketch the Day, Paint the Night. His next two albums, The Spirit Store and Only Love is Real were self-produced on return trips home, evolving from spending a few months at a time in cities around Europe, USA, Asia and South America. These works lead to nominations for Best New Irish Act in the 2004 Meteor Awards and in the Traditional/Folk category in the 2005 Hot Press Awards.
Having received massive success with his last album Colour Me Colourful and a huge amount of airplay with the hit single One of the Same, Roesy soundproofed the basement of his Amsterdam apartment where he was living and got to work writing and recording Fable. He mixed the album in New York, where he had previously been picked up by Wardlaw Banks and Downtown Music, currently promoting him in the USA
Fable is arguably Roesy’s most down to earth album to date, reflecting on the obstacles we face at the dawn of a new decade, moving between faith and frustration and covering themes of love, fear and the journey between the two. It’s the work of a musician who is completely comfortable in his ability and continues to remain true to himself, this shines through from beginning to end.
