Roberts’ That’s My Home Earns Rave Reviews
Press, Fans, Clubs Praise New Release from Former Asleep at the Wheel Fiddle Player
AUSTIN, Texas – After 19 years with Asleep at the Wheel, two Grammys, and three Hall of Fame inductions as an individual, fiddler Jason Roberts has stepped out to front the Jason Roberts Band. The CD Release Party for Roberts’ his latest CD, That’s My Home, is Friday, August 1st at Austin’s famed Broken Spoke. Showtime 9:30 p.m. All ages admitted.
That’s My Home has earned rave reviews, most recently in the August issue of Country Music People. The magazine’s editor Duncan Warwick writes, “I’d say it’s a triumph, and undoubtedly one of my favourite albums of 2014…Jason Roberts doesn’t put a foot wrong on this CD which should sit just as well with fans of real country as it will with Western Swing aficionados…”
Warwick noted the CD’s “live-in-the-room sound” and described a “toe-tapping, swinging, two-stepping delight from start to finish that manages to sound fluid and natural whilst also being superbly produced.” The review continues, “Lest We Forget is the sole Jason Roberts composition included here, and on the strength of it we need to hear a lot more of his songs. It sounds like a lost 60s shuffle, and with its ‘Let’s drink wine…’ hook is not something that will leave your head in a hurry…” “Absolutely superb,” Warwick’s review concludes.
