Offaly country singer launches debut album to packed house
Rising Offaly country music star Alex Roe launched his debut album at The Well in Moate last Tuesday night, October 16.
The young country sensation launched 'Living The Life' to a full house who had come from far and near, by car, by bus, and even by ferry in the case of one dedicated fan who made the trip all the way from the UK, to share in the Clara man’s big
Hugh O’ Brien and Avril Smith were even on hand to record the event for Hot Country. And what a night it turned out to be!
With a line-up of some of Irish country’s biggest names and strongest emerging talents helping Alex to celebrate the occasion, there was a party atmosphere in full swing in The Well throughout the night.
Speaking afterwards, Alex referred to the experience as being, “a dream come true.” With 3 #1’s already to his name, ‘Living The Life’ had a lot to live up to in terms of expectations.
And for Alex, who has already graced some big stages this year – the Hot Country TV Awards Concert, the Tullamore Show, and the National Ploughing Championship’s main entertainment stage to name just a few – this was a chance to shine in his own right, as the headline performer. And true to form, the ‘Summer Time’ singer shone bright.
“I’ve been looking forward to this night for such a long time”, revealed Alex, “so for it to finally be here, and for everything to have gone so well, I couldn’t be happier. I have to say a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who came out and danced, and sang, and made it such a fun night for all of the artists who performed, not just myself. And to those artists as well, it wouldn’t have been the night it was without those guys, so my heart is theirs, too.”
‘Living The Life’, the debut album from Alex Roe, will be available to download from all digital platforms in the coming weeks. Physical copies will be available from selected outlets, and from Alex’s official music page on Facebook.
