Roger Tarry spins homespun tales of love, loss and longing, melding folk themes around a soft vocal delivery. The nod to influences such as Iron & Wine and Fairport Convention set him apart from the reams of identikit singer-songwriters, and his easy on-stage manner and effortless windswept charm make him one of the most popular performers around.

Album Info

 'quiet town' opens with the plaintive dustbowl ballad 'It's Not You', recorded live with long-time collaborator Caroline Martin, evoking memories of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings at their best. Tracks like 'Cropsy' and 'They Have Never' offer a much darker hinterland, accompanied by Lizz Lipscombe's (Richard Hawley) rich and atmospheric string soundtrack. The title track 'quiet town' strikes a more contemplative tone, and features the brass arrangements of Terry Edwards (Nick Cave; David Gray). Live favourite 'When Was' has finally been recorded, showcasing Roger's superb finger-picking technique. 'Blow' is a more traditional love story, but the interplay of guitar and accordian is unique, with a firm pace dictated by Ian Jennings (Big Town Playboys,Robert Plant; Jeff Beck) on double bass and Robert Brian (Siouxsie Sioux) providing drums.
