“stripped-down California Americana... The guest stars are impressive on the band’s third record and first all-studio album, Comes Around Again, seeing Bill Payne of Little Feat on keys and John Steward from the mighty Fishbone on drums. They’ll be around for years, and with a swath of followers behind them. The occasional slide guitar and wispy, faraway melodies can at times feel like the old cowboy country first heard in it, but … the Rollers’ style changes up considerably song to song, from reggae to rock, folk, and gospel. …they just want to push the positive scene. With a record like Comes Around Again, all they can do is give. It’s unsuspecting, without demand, and the furthest thing from pretense you’ll find. Enough people will cheer with relief for the gentle vibes, and that explains how the band has come this far. Chris and the Rollers are on the brink of national exposure after having worked and toured internationally for over ten years…”

“They play together well, in a tightly cohesive style while kicking up the boogie factor. A fun listen from start to finish, featuring some excellent guitar work with a laid back vibe. These are competent performances that sound like they are having a good time. Recommended.”

“Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Christopher Hawley lives in Venice, CA, surfs, and plays rock and roll blues music with his band, The Rollers. Caroline Gleich caught up with him and his band at a beach-bum bar steps from the sand in Venice, California, to ask about his plans for the winter.”
