"It has taken Roger Street Friedman decades to work through the release of two albums.  Such a long gestation period would suggest that the new material would exude passion, skill and a mature sensibility.  It does all that in spades.         -  Rob Dickens/No Depression

"Although Roger Street Friedman resides well below the radar, the music he makes offers all the ingredients necessary for mainstream success. While it’s hard to apply an exact comparison to his easily accessible sound, suffice it to say that James Taylor, Randy Newman and Jackson Browne all come to mind.         -  Lee Zimmerman/Elmore Magazine

"He writes with the wisdom of someone who’s seen his share of living, and actually was savvy enough to take notes along the way... So here it is: what will surely be one of the best albums of this still brand new year--delivered right on time.”                                                                                        -  Bill Bentley/Bentley’s Bandstand/The Morton Report read full review

 

"This recording [Shoot The Moon] isn’t possible to pigeonhole, and that’s a good thing. Fans of good music will enjoy it."                                                                                                                     - Ricky Flake/Biloxi Sun Herald (five stars)

 

"One moment 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, Culture Sonar  read full review

 

"Sunshine fills up all the cracks on “Everyday” to allow the tune to dance with hands waving through Shoot the Moon, the recent release from Roger Street Friedman."                                                                                                                                      - The Alternate Root read more 

 

“Puffs Of Smoke...sets the stage for the eclectic effort that meshes Americana, folk, blues, soul, and more.”    - Matt Inman/Relix

 

“If SHOOT THE MOON doesn't quite deserve masterpiece status, it's at least close. His words are autobiographical, cinematic, blunt and honest. His music is folk-rock, raucous horn-rock, dreamy pop-rock, Progressive Americana and sweet soulful R&B. Think Jackson Brown without all the earnestness.”    - Mike Greenblatt/The Aquarian


“Roger Street Friedman’s first album already has the persona, and he is accompanied by some well-known players in a band that is so in-tune to the richness and message of Roger’s songs, it’s as if they have played with him for years. Maybe they have.” - John Apice, No Depression read full review

“If you didn’t have soul going into this show, you surely had soul coming out of it. On Saturday, November 22, The Blind Boys of Alabama, with special guest, Roger Street Friedman, put on a show that will long be remembered.”  read full review
