“Late to Bat, But Hits Another Home Run” said No Depression magazine of New York singer-songwriter Roger Street Friedman after the release of his second album at the age of 54. The roots rocker, whose third album is expected late this year, sings about the joys and challenges of life, resonating with audiences of all ages. “One minute he’s turning out harmonically rich Paul Simon-esque art-folk; the next he’s digging into the kind of good 'n' greasy Americana groove John Hiatt would kill for.”-Jim Allen, CultureSonar.
