Description

“Superb.” --Rolling Stone.

 

“Roger Salloom’s voice quickly suggests a comparison to early Bob Dylan, but it’s this vet’s penchant for telling a great story that puts him in the same category.” –Time Out New York.

 

Imagine Jack Kerouac, John Belushi, Lord Buckley, Lenny Bruce, The Diggers, and throw in Leadbelly, Jimmy Reed, Lonnie Johnson, Geoff Muldaur, Dan Penn... all rolled into one person, and you have a glimpse of this poet, singer-songwriter. Salloom performed with The Band, Steve Forbert, Doc Watson, John Prine, to name a few. He was at the center of the 1960s San Francisco scene, playing the Fillmore with Santana, Van Morrison, BB King and Procul Harum. In the 1970s he moved to Nashville to pursue songwriting, then disappeared for 20 years to raise a family as a single parent and draw a syndicated cartoon.

 

A cross between blues, roots, Americana, country, and soul, Salloom always speaks from his heart. He has a self-deprecating, humorous, everyman quality, mixed with a powerful sensitivity and depth of character. His story is so compelling that it enticed an award-winning filmmaker to make a film about the subject: So Glad I Made It, the Saga of Roger Salloom, America's Best Unknown Songwriter, won 6 awards, was on the 2006 Grammy ballot, and received rave reviews across the U.S.

 

“...The writing talent of Dylan or Guthrie... musical genius...hilarious and tragic, kindhearted and careless, all the complexities of a real human being.” IMDb.
