Bio

Roscoe James Irwin is a traveller, marrying his experiences to his music, drawing on his solo adventures in some of the world’s most remote and interesting locations as fuel for this personal project that showcases his complex musical capabilities.

The result is a wall of lush orchestral colors, layered on folk pop melodies washed with ambient electronic sounds. This “long haired multi-instrumental wonder”, at times performing as a one-man band, “delivers his songs unashamedly and note-perfect”. - The Ripe, Leah Phillips.

I thought Roscoe was on the right track with Arrows but this has exceeded expectations. Beautifully composed, it's got that *stop and listen* effect. Kind of gave me a Springsteen 'Secret Garden' feeling which can't be a terrible comparison for any songwriter.
