Angus Roy - Quiet is King

June 22, 2017


Later in 2016 I received a call from Angus who'd seen/heard the work I did on The Beautiful Lie. He wanted to make an acoustic album with a subtle focus, inventive sounds that stemmed from his acoustic playing and an overall brooding soundscape.


We kicked off in March 2017 and I have to say I felt so sorry for him as the studio was cursed with an unfindable dead rat and I was as sick as a dog with some evil road-borne flu I'd brought back from the Port Fairy Festival. I really can't remember much of the 1st session, but by the second session in early May, it was apparent we'd pulled it off.


Angus has a wonderful voice, reminiscent of Richard Hawley, all brought into deep focus with the Shure SM7 mic he'd stuffed into his guitar case. We tried all manner of ambient indulgences.


The album "Quiet is King" is out within the month on CD, Bandcamp and other downloadable guises. I'm well pleased with this work.


And thanks to Angus for taking a punt on a studio far from home and the bright lights of Melbourne.
