Train kept-a-rollin’. Grew up in Chicago and Southern California. It started with Motown then fused and mutated into a Rock thing. Along the way, I have developed an appreciation for varieties of music genres. Though I am writing about myself, exposure has honed my awareness of top shelf craftsmanship. I’m a connoisseur who grew up around musicians and play music for enjoyment.
When I hear a musician or singer that captivates my ear, everything else in the world stops. Imagine being privy to concentrated blocks of recordings by a guitarist who keeps you mesmerized. The world stops for hours at a time.
I have attended events when this guitarist filled the room with captivating riffs and entanglements that could ever be stretched out of a guitar. The power exhibited during live performances commands audiences to notice the master has captured attention. In the studio, Roger will play for hours creating unimaginable sounds and turn it into an ethereal experience grooving full throttle.
Where does one get these arrangements of notes with crazy sounds and turn it into a unique composition? He goes toe to toe with the greats. He has an ear for matching the heavies and making it a part of himself. Occasionally you hear the psychedelic Jimmy guitar master, or Jeff’s chicken scratching mesmerizing classical sound. When Satriani hit the heavies with his classical/fusion/rock/legacy, Roger mastered every stroke. Roger’s blues style sounds like he crawled right into the Mississippi mud, breathing the lifeblood of tortured tones and rhythmic chord structure. You want to hear the blues walk you will hear it at the core of this Southern California ripping guitar sound. Passion for the craft teases him to challenge his adeptness, privately, with skills of respected peers. When I think about the scene in Crossroads Roger would have blasted Vai back into purgatory. No disrespect to Vai as he also is regarded rightfully so as one of the heavies.
Having a signature sound Roger Nemour is not one to mimic. Fueled by personal creativity pushes him into extraordinary. There has always been a gifted musician for whatever reason remains hovering the border of celebrity status and how Roger has managed to do this mystifies me. I missed a great collaboration when he teamed with Ike Turner. Rogers’s funky blues style with signature Roger Nemour rock sound is untouchable and worth taking notice.
Roger has recieved around 1,300,000 song plays regarding his original songs he has posted http://www.numberonemusic.com/rogernemourHis songs are all in the top 20 Charts of different genre's that include Blues, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Fusion, Funk, Rock and Film Music.
