The Old Dog

by Roger Silverberg

Imagine Randy Newman, Warren Zevon, Neil Finn, and Bob Dylan passing the bottle around at Buddy Holley's gravesite. Toss in a touch of Philly blue eyed soul and you'd be on the right track.

Album Notes
As on his prior albums, Silverberg's never been shy about letting his sixties and seventies sensibilities show, and on The Old Dog, they really shine, thanks to veteran engineer and producer, Philadelphia's Jim Salamone. Vintage Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer electric pianos, Hammond organs are heard, mainly behind acoustic guitars. If you're familiar with Daryl Hall & John Oates's earlier albums and Warren Zevon's mid-70s work, there's plenty on The Old Dog to savor, both lyrically and melodically.

On The Old Dog, Roger Silverberg weaves stories; about childhood memories, desire, courtship, marriage, and aging, with just enough specifics to make his stories relatable. The music itself has a classic feel – Silverberg is well past the point of caring whether his songs are hip enough to be pop hits even as he hopes that some of his music will outlive him – but that doesn't mean he sounds trapped in the past. This is a very "listener-friendly" album that has an obvious Side 1 and Side 2.


What are people saying about Roger Silverberg?

"Roger comes across like a 21st century Cat Stevens, with some really deep lyrics about living delivered in a unique voice."
Theresa Dieso – Long Valley Music Festival

"Roger doesn't hide his sixties and seventies soft-rock roots and sets about documenting that experience for the rest of us via a set of classic-feeling songs."
Geoffrey Armes – Inside Connection Magazine

"I caught Roger's set at the Knitting Factory last night. He's got it going on; the hooks, the pop sound, the pacing of a tight set – a pure pleasure.
Tom Boyd – Host, Rock 'n Roots Web Radio Show
