MP3 of the Day #186: Pete Roe

By on Monday, 24th May 2010 at 10:00 am

Pete Roe moved to London and was quickly spotted by Laura Marling for his piano-playing skills, becoming an important member of Marling’s touring band. But Roe was discovered by Communion Records, an independent label founded by Ben Lovett of Mumford and Sons, Kevin Jones of Cherbourg and producer Ian Grimble, and will be touring the UK in June in support of his upcoming EP, ‘The Merry-Go-Round’.

Have a listen to a track from the EP, ‘Bellini’. It’s a perfect example of what folk music done right sounds like – spot on acoustic guitar and spot on vocals sung with the greatest of emotion. After seeing him open for Laura Marling last week, I’m convinced. You will be too.

Oooops, attached the wrong MP3! Have attached the correct one now!
