Roo & The Howl brings together sorrow and beauty in the best traditions of Folk, Pop and hint of Rock 'n' Roll. Roo finds a sweet spot between Fleetwood Mac and early Rolling Stones with a little Cat Power thrown in. The type of music that you can stay all night at a bar drinking whiskey to, Roo & The Howl is a fresh take on Americana that is rapidly gaining fans. In 2013 Roo toured the midwest and recorded a Daytrotter session. 2014 has seen Roo playing their first SXSW official showcase, as well releasing their debut full-length record.
"In January we took four days to record our debut LP. I wanted to capture the feeling of humans playing music together, in that moment and place. We tracked live as a band without overdubs or auto-tune. My hope is that it conveys that honesty and beauty of people creating music together." - Roo
After having a successful showing at SXSW, Roo & The Howl are pleased to announce their first single off of the upcoming album 'Me/We.' The album will be released on vinyl and digital download on May 20, 2014.
The first single, Give Me Time, showcases Roo & The Howl's rich sound, and hints to the depth that 'Me/We' reaches.
