A compelling songwriter with a commanding voice, Roberts combines the authenticity of Americana and folk music with the boldness of roots rock. The powerful and personal project introduces Roberts as one of the genres most promising new artists.
Critical acclaim includes…
“…a heartbreaking nonchalance redolent of John Hiatt.”“…whether looking at the big or small picture, Roberts delivers them all with authenticity…”
“…a roots-rock sound that should appeal to fans of Bruce Hornsby and Bob Dylan alike…”
—Rolling Stone Country
“Roberts is a distinct talent with the ability to capture emotion and offer insightful commentary on the human condition and the times we struggle with.”—Cowboys & Indians
“Roberts has a thoughtful, even endearing sincerity to his writing. There’s a maturity in the vocal that makes me want to hear him cover some old standards like Colter Wall.”
—Ear To The Ground
“…soft vocal power and ability to craft heartfelt, lyrically potent folk songs…”
