Album Notes
This CD bounces around blues & folk roots-type music. The sounds are very cool, but the lyrics are the pearls here. Characters, places, comments and stories will amuse and warm you (well, depending on your sense of humor, of course). This'll be the most interesting album you hear this year (whatever year you buy it).

A couple of comments from listeners:
"Wry, no-nonsense songwriting." PS
"Cool, clever, well written" AM

All written and performed by Mick. Keith had a hand in the lyrics on his lament, and the Irish percussionist Maureen Gartland plays on Keef's Lament, Hearts & Pockets and Med/Msg. Thank you both. Otherwise it's me in my basement obsessing over notes and words.

These are a lot of true stories, incidents that used to be true, characters I wish I'd known, and, once in a while, it's me you're hearing about. Write what you know, right? Here's a swirl of styles with the river blues running through them.

Rust Belt Love! Buy it today....
Listening to Rust Belt love is like reading a book of short stories put to music.You have a sneak peek into the lives of many characters real or created by Rogers. I 'm hearing the musical influences of the Stones, Tom Waits, Rickie Lee Jones and Dylan. In this era of over produced soulless music, its nice to hear a genuine artist.

I like the colorings of the acoustic, electric, slide guitars and mandolin combined with the unique vocal stylings that brings life to the songs.
Songs like “what tomorrow brings” and “a house party going” captures the interaction of people living their lives not always on the same page but having fun doing it.
