Roger Hoover

Songwriter Roger Hoover

Roger Hoover’s plaintive brand of songs seem to come from some unknown time and place are steeped richly in the Southern-born Midwestern-raised Rust Belt roots. With Pastures Roger Hoover gives us what playwright Tyler Whidden calls, “songs that howl with the voices of the disenfranchised and heartbroken whose ghosts hang like shadows.” In a series of songs to lovers, friends, and family, Hoover weaves together diverse strands of experience, wilderness, love, work and wisdom, into a collection of songs that explores man’s relationship with himself, with nature, and with women. Roger Hoover will release Pastures on September 13 via Last Chance Records.
