Roesy has recorded his latest album, simply called Roesy, in the legendary Windmill Lane Studios (also known as U2-studios) in Dublin. Roesy talks about the album:
“After The Fable Tour while the voices were still warm and the fingers subtle, myself and Albert Niland went straight to the (…) studio to lay down the set as we had played it on tour. We spent two days playing live in an amazing room, recorded 14 songs and captured some real magic. The intention for the recording was that it be released (…) through the Dutch label Mass Market Recordings. I am thrilled to say that those wheels are now well and truly in motion.” So are we!
