Roger Street Friedman with Lisa Bastoni
Singer-songwriter Roger Street Freidman is 54, a husband and a father of two, and about to release his masterwork, Shoot The Moon. Its a full-emotional spectrum collection of vivacious and reflective vignettes from real life that recalls the pop-rock singer-songwriter tradition of Jackson Browne, Marc Cohn, Randy Newman, Colin Hay, Bruce Hornsby, and Mark Knopfler. Few artists make albums like this today. In an age of irony, few songwriters are this brave in their vulnerability, and possess Friedmans gift for penning hook-laden, emotionally resonant, pop-rock.
Friedman has garnered acclaim for his debut, The Waiting Sky. Champions for the album include No Depression, American Songwriter, Relix Magazine, MSN, The Alternate Route, Elmore Magazine and the New York Daily News. Friedman supported the effort with local gigs and regional touring, interspersed with opening slots for such venerated artists as Los Lobos and The Blind Boys of Alabama.
Shoot The Moon exudes an album-oriented cohesion which is to say there is a broad spectrum of feelings and genres threaded together by Friedmans well-developed aesthetic sense. His stylistic calling card is both earthy and urbane, spanning pastoral folk, euphoric New Orleans-style horn driven pop-rock, alt-country, blues and R&B.
Lisa Bastoni had a thriving singer-songwriter career going until she took a break to start a family with her husband, novelist Christopher Boucher. Now, after nearly ten years away from writing and performing, Bastoni returns to music with The Wishing Hour (January 27, 2017), an impressive new record produced by Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer Felix McTeigue (Lori McKenna/Anais Mitchell/Martin Sexton). The album features Bastoni's longtime friend and collaborator, Red Sox organist Josh Kantor, as well as guest appearances by New West recording artists The Mastersons, singer Kelly Hogan (Neko Case/The Decemberists), Lula Wiles' Ellie Buckland, and John O'Reilly, Jr. (Mandy Moore/Jason Mraz).
