Breathing new life into traditional English and Celtic Folk songs, Stu re-imagines them into stomping, roots infused arrangements that are then interwoven with acoustic heavy metal to deliver something completely original.

Recording Celtic Roots began in March 2016 at Sydney’s Damien Gerard Studios. The EP features one original song with full instrumentation and four traditional Celtic and English Folk arrangements stripped down to Stu’s signature roots-infused sound. The EP also features an Acoustic Maiden track that fuses together Stu's Celtic and Heavy Metal influences. 

Iron Maiden's classic, The Number of the Beast will be made available on May 1 as a free download upon release of the EP.

The EP’s final track, The Saint of Kings Cross is about legendary Kings Cross Bikers Social and Welfare Club founder and cultural icon Randall “Animal” Nelson OAM. 
The track will be released on April 25 as a digital single preceding the EP.

Celtic Roots features Steph Miller, ex Roaring Jack on accordion, mandola and zither, Mark Oats from Bushwhackers/Finn MacCool on fiddle, and Gordon Rytmeister, ex everything! on drums. 

Irish Joe Lynch is also featured on the EP narrating an excerpt from Robbie Burns in his iconic style.
