Product Notes

Roger Silverberg grew up at one of the more opportune times for music. The AM radio dial in the 50s and 60s was alive with Rock 'n Roll, Country, Blues, Doo-Wop, R & B, and styles that have (much) later been lumped into the broad Americana categories. It is hardly a surprise that bits and pieces of all these should be present in his songwriting and performing style. Roger grew up loving the live music experience. His father came from a large mid-western family where everyone sang and played. Early favorites of Roger's included Hank Williams, The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holley ? all musicians his dad listened to. But the house was filled with records by Ella Fitzgerald, the Mills Brothers, and others. Roger played those 78s and 45s and rapidly became curious about the variety of sounds out there. (The roots of his 'music without walls' philosophy?) A guitar player since 1963, Roger gave his first solo performance in 1964 (doing Roger Miller's King of the Road), formed his first band in 1966, wrote his first serious songs in 1969-70, and performed regularly with bands and as a soloist throughout the 70s in the Philadelphia, PA area. Relocating to New York in 1982, Roger gravitated to the Greenwich Village scene and played everywhere from open mics and on the street to some of the venues that are still there on Bleeker Street. No, the Bottom Line was not one of them, sorry to say. The move triggered a wave of new songs, some of which Roger still puts into his set. Now based in Huntington, Long Island, Roger began the most recent phase of his musical career in 1998 when he decided to share one of his newest songs at an open mic series put on by the Folk Music Society of Huntington. Roger had done very few public performances in the 1986 - 1998 period and this was like a relaunch.) The reception to his music was very positive, with comments coming from his peers. He has been playing and writing actively ever since. In fact, since 1998, making music has been number one priority for Roger. The Sketches & Footprints EP marks Roger's first studio recording since 1981, and his first recording of all-original material. He hopes you will connect with the tunes which span a range of styles. Give 'em a spin (or a click). Thank you!
