CLINT ROBERTS

A compelling songwriter with a commanding voice, Clint Roberts combines the acoustic roots of Americana and folk music with the boldness of roots rock in his debut album, Rose Songs. The powerful and personal project introduces Roberts as one of the genre’s most promising new artists.

“In some senses, this record is the end, symbolically, of some things in my past, but it’s also very much the beginning,” he says. “I feel the relief of a lot of things being behind me and the optimism of what might be in store for me in the future.”

“The Drifter” is richly detailed and carefully crafted, allowing listeners to feel like they’re in the room. In contrast, “Nero’s Waltz” is a wry political commentary that came to life as Roberts saw the juxtaposition of rhyming “Hallelujah” with “What’s it to ya?” Not specifically inspired by a certain president, it’s more about the “have and have nots” in society – but in a twist, it’s sung from the smug perspective of the privileged. Then comes “Nothing Left To Say,” a commentary from someone who throws everything they have into one dream, not knowing if it will pan out.

Although he says that melodies come naturally, Roberts meticulously constructs his lyrics. For example, “Chrysalis” took five years to complete. That attention to authenticity is evident throughout Rose Songs.

Roberts recorded the album at Ocean Way in Nashville with producer Ben Fowler. By collaborating in the studio, the musicians captured a vibe that falls somewhere between roots rock and contemporary folk. Today, Roberts describes the sessions as “the most profound experience I’ve had in my career thus far.”

As a teenager growing up in Western N.C., Roberts found his calling on the stage. At 14, a senior in his drama class brought in a ukulele. Because Roberts had always wanted to learn a stringed instrument, he used the uke as a jumping-off point, and received encouragement for the songs he wrote on it. From there, he picked up the banjo and guitar.

As a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, Roberts has multiple paths to forge a connection with an audience – something he strives to do with every show.
