Roger Hoover

Folk Balladeer, Americana Troubador, Myth Maker & Storyteller.

Over the past 10 years, songwriter Roger Hoover has been preaching the gospel of American music to a growing group of devoted fans by keeping one foot in what Greil Marcus describes as the “old, weird America” and another foot firmly planted in the now.

Heavily influenced by early blues, folk, hymns and country, Hoover crafts distinct songs with ‘lyrical complexity seldom attained by artists in any crowded musical genre’ that compel his audience to feel the triumph, tragedy, sin, redemption and heartbreak of the characters he creates.
