"An Abridged Roundup Of WV Music (2016)"

"A perfect pairing of musicians, I’ve been a fan of the respective artists bands and solo projects for a long time now. Although I’ve never been a huge fan of acoustic/singer-songwriter type tunes, if it contains a certain dark and haunting vibe and poignant lyrics like this split does, I am all on board. It also goes perfectly with the time of year it was released, as it exudes a feeling of the onset of winter; for myself, at least. It’s a definite must-hear. Top Tracks: All of Them!" - Hold The Note Magazine


Roy F. Bush/Townsel Turner Split EP (2016)



Roy F. Bush is a singer-songwriter from Charleston, WV.  He's a mostly self-taught musician, but owes his  beginnings to his father, a musician and songwriter also, who mentored him and got him started on his musical journey.  Roy began writing original music and performing in 2012 in the town of Ravenswood, WV, where he attended high school. During the winter of 2013, he befriended a man by the name of John Poole, founder of the well received Charleston post-rock band No Pretty Pictures. John, a long time advocate for the local music scene, created an all ages venue known as The Cartref, where he invited Roy to play his first of many shows to come in the summer of 2014 and on into 2015.
Thanks to John Poole and The Cartref, Roy has seen many musical opportunities arise around West Virginia, having now played venues such as Third Eye Cabaret, Porch Unplugged, The Alpine Theatre (Ripley, WV), and of course The Cartref, along with local festivals like Rocktoberfest (Logan, WV), the Ohio River Festival (Ravenswood, WV), and Cartrella (a music festival curated by John Poole featuring a plethora of bands and artists from around West Virginia and its neighboring states). And gratefully enough, all in the span of three years.

Roy's solo acoustic tunes are easy on the ears, yet manage to pack a delicate punch, lyrically.  The energy may be different than that of a live band, but his set is still a raw, emotionally charged experience that's bound to make your heart ache.
