This CD is the logical next step in Roger’s atypical, in-reverse musical career. The 1st CD, ‘Sheepless..’, was a faux ‘tribute’ CD, with well-known Cincy groups interpreting Roger’s songs. The 2nd CD, ‘Communal Effort’, had Roger participating more with individual Cincy musicians in performing his compositions and singing a few tunes. By the 3rd CD, The Same But Different, Roger has assumed the role of lead singer, and also included his versions of off-the-beaten-path ‘cover’ tunes previously done by artists such as Wynn Stewart, Ben Vaughn, and Johnny Cash. Recorded in Cincinnati and Nashville, the CD features appearances by guitarist Bill Kirchen (of Commander Cody fame), and Nashville pickers Chris Casello and James LaRitz.

Enjoyed performing at the JOHNNY SCHOTT COMMEMORATIVE CONCERT on March 18, 2012 at THE REDMOOR in Mt. Lookout.. Lots of great Cincinnati musicians got together to honor the memory of one of local legend gone too soon. Thanks to Steve Sigsbee and Deb Noon for performing with me. Great to see a lot of Cincy musician friends.

Johnny sang a song of mine (Talkin' In The City) on my local music project CD 'Sheepless In Cincinnati'. The song made a bit of a splash overseas when it was released.

Download a FREE mp3 file of Talkin In The City HERE. (4.5 MB). Song also features Bill Osterhaus, Tim Skidmore, Marcos Sastre, Mark Brandt, and myself.
