Roo Arcus is as real as they come. He sings the way he lives, honest, true and country. He’s a cowboy, a storyteller, a songwriter and one heck of a recording artist. This Australian cattleman, who to this day, owns and works the family farm, oozes authenticity and is true to his country roots.
2022 Country Music ‘Hands of Fame’ Inductee, Arcus has now released 4 albums resulting in a string of radio hits, awards and nominations. His resilience, hard work, honesty and pride in his music, has earnt the respect of industry and his ever-growing loyal fan base.
Few do it like Roo. He represents that illusive blend of old-world cowboy coupled with refined international touring artist. His music has worldwide appeal, as does his warm and gentlemanly but strong nature.
Roo’s latest album ‘Tumbleweed’ is testament to a man who knows who he is and who’s not afraid to blaze his own trail. Such grit and tenacity come from a lifetime of walking the road less travelled.
SAVING COUNTRY MUSIC - USA
“Beyond the authenticity and the clear rudimentary study of country music that Roo displays in his music, Cowboys and Sunsets is remarkable in how it sounds just like some lost album from the sweet spot of the career of Alan Jackson or George Strait, or even a little bit of James Hand when they were still young and hungry and trying to prove themselves.”
COUNTRY MUSIC PEOPLE MAGAZINE - UK (Duncan Warwick)
“This is one of those albums that could be best described as ‘the best record George Strait never made”. (This Here Cowboy)

“Who better to create and perform such music than a man who knows what life on the land is like, who’s lived through its trials and triumphs, and who is passionate about communicating those experiences through amazing songs”.
