"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything."
- Plato

Roger Salloom's Music

"The truth is simple... I love good music and you do too!

I believe the simplest definition of good music is that which “stands the test of time.” I want to give a listener something which is sympathetic to and akin with the nearly, ineffable, fragile humanness I spy when watching those who struggle daily. Also, the one emotion expressed which we see so little of is – kindness. So, I will try to give you some of that whenever I am able."

Last Call

Here's what people are saying about it.

"Be prepared to be captivated."

"... there's a simple honesty and wryness to the lyrics that are touching, deeply affective, often a matter of a level confessional of shortcomings that no one listening can help but share a rueful and grinning remembrance with."

" The title cut was well chosen as the showcase's sobriquet, as it's a perfect blend of the player-singer-composer at the top of his game...even more so than the rest of the gems here, every inch of this release a pleasure."

» Mark S. Tucker, www.acoustic-music.com

"There are countless famous story tellers in American history. If Salloom keeps this up, he'll easily find himself among them."

» Abbey K. Davis – MuzikReviews.com

"...once you start really tuning into the lyrics, a deeper story is revealed… an almost existential perspective on life; "The best thing I do is nothing, and I'm doing that the best I can," he observes on that song, somehow making it sound like the wisest life choice imaginable, and that little magic trick is just where Salloom's true gift seems to lie."
