Roesy, from Birr, County Offaly, is an Irish singer-songwriter. His debut album “Sketch the Day, Paint the Night” (2001) was followed by “The Spirit Store” in 2003 and “Only Love is Real” in 2004. These albums were released on his Birr-based label Blue Cloak Records.
Through his career he has shared the stage with Bert Jansch, Ron Sexsmith, Paul Brady, Billy Bragg, John Martyn, Davy Spillane, Donovan, Shane MacGowan, fellow Offaly musicians Mundy and Dan Foley, plus celebrated Irish author Paul Durcan.
Roesy appeared in the first Other Voices TV series on RTÉ. He was nominated for Best New Irish Act in the 2004 Meteor Music Awards and voted no.8 in the Trad/Folk section of the Annual Hot Press Awards 2005. His song “Potosi Mine” was included in the “Diamond Mountain Session Presents” compilation CD, also featuring Sinéad O’Connor, Steve Earle, Natalie Merchant and Sharon Shannon.
On the 2003 charity album Even Better than the Real Thing Vol. 1, Roesy performed a cover version of the song Breathe by Blu Cantrell. On 2004’s Even Better than the Real Thing Vol. 2, he performed a cover version of Beyoncé Knowles’s Naughty Girl.
Antelodic is an instrumental trio formed in 2012. The ensemble is unique for two reasons. First, the unorthodox instrumentation consists of two saxophones and electric guitar. Second, the traditional roles of the instruments are often reversed. The saxophones become the rhythm section, providing the bass and harmony elements, while the guitar states the melody.
Band leader, guitarist and composer Robbie Melville (Australian Pops Orchestra, Krystle Warren, John Murry) developed the idea for Antelodic during a break from performing after the birth of his second daughter. The trio’s music is a reflection of this period. Gentle, optimistic, lyrical and engaging. Joined by Gotye’s horn section leader, Gideon Brazil on tenor saxophone, and Monty Mackenzie of the experimental and emotive Harmless, the trio continue to develop a fifteen year musical relationship that draws equally on the jazz aesthetic of Jimmy Giuffre, the singer-songwriter tradition of Joni Mitchell, the deep soul of Krystle Warren, the atmospheric impressionism of Debussy, the folk stylings of Lau and the experimental sonic journeys of Bill Frisell.
