Just listening to As the Sun Rises. I listened once already and had to hear it again. It is GORGEOUS man! Great work. Very cinematic; Eurasian; grandeur; optimism and hope and the sacred all there. Prog-like. (NOT a criticism in my book!) This is music where I live and have for years. Oldfield-esque. Love it. chamBerlin
Favorite track: Walkabout.
Roger's passion for saxophone and music goes back over 45 years. However he lost his ability to play several years prior to being diagnosed wit Parkinson's in 2010.. After three months of working with his doctor's on medication and physical therapy, he describes regaining his ability to play as his saxophones waking up. Roger immediately went back to work on his own music as well as collaborations with other musicians. He was able to complete his band Yeti Rain's 4th Release 'Stars Fall Darkly",Roger created the self released 'Ebner, Kopecky, Walkner, Blake project His collaborations with Chicago House DJs can be found on Chicago labels Pool House and Aathee. Roger also headlined House of Blues Chicago as a member of the Industrial Rock super group PigFace. And, there's much more to come...
In the spirit of giving back, Roger is starting Music For Movement to raise awareness and funding for Parkinson's research A portion of the profits from the sale his latest project 'New World' will go directly to Parkinson's research.
