    Hey Rob- Nice job on your lastest work. Here is a review for your listeners: I hear the sounds of Neil Young, Elton John and Jackson Brown but I also hear the unique sound of a newer songwriter enjoying the craft of writing and expressing his observations as he journey's thru life. Rob is indeed a troubadour making the most of his love for music and for the joy of crafting the word. You will enjoy his songs if you appreciate not the fancy overlays that the digital age of music has become, but simply the songwriter himself. Enjoy. Jenn Cleary

Press

"On his last effort, 2011's Misfit, Rob Roper more than proved that he had sharp songwriting skills and a knack for penning some pretty damn witty lyrics. There's more of that on the new The Other Side of Nowhere, but musically, this release is more of a stripped-down affair with primarily acoustic instruments, a setting that works quite well with Roper's writing, bringing his lyrics more to the forefront. Roper says he originally intended to make a duo album with violinist Paul Ermisch, with whom he's been performing as a two-piece for the past few years, but during the recording process, more players were brought in, including percussionist Daren Hahn. While Misfit might rock a bit more, The Other Side of Nowhere is equally engaging and potent."
