ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Roger Ridley was a working musician who made his home in Las Vegas, Nevada. Known for his singing, guitar playing and songwriting, Roger’s style is best described as his very own, “Musical Gumbo” with influences from R&B and soul legends such as Sam Cooke and Otis Redding. Roger created a style that was totally unique to his own musical personality.

With his easy-going manner and awesome presence, Roger accumulated a host of friends while performing at some of New York’s most popular clubs such as the Baby Grand and the Cotton Club. He also opened for the likes of Millie Jackson and Clarence Carter, opportunities that paved the way for him to perform at the US Open in New York City and at the wedding of Douglas Kennedy, son of the former US Attorney Bobby Kennedy.

Never one to be limited to one ambition or genre, Roger appeared on several stage productions including, “Blues for a Gospel Queen” and “No Place To Be Somebody” in New York City, as well as the Kenneth Feld Production, “Madhattan”, in Las Vegas. He recorded the title song to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Star Light Express”, jingles for the Nickelodeon television station, the NBA and a blues song for the Disney Channel.

His dedication to stage performance allowed him to travel all over the world, including places such as Milano and Bologna, Italy and Lugano, Switzerland where he was a part of the “Blues to Bach” concert and Japan where he performed in the “Liberty on The Street” Japan tour. He continued to perform until his untimely demise on Wednesday November 16, 2005.

Masterful
Otis Redding wrote Sitting on the Dock of the Bay but Roger Ridley OWNS it!!

His soulful voice gives you chills.

What a wonderful man
A truly gifted street performer that will never be missed. This is one of the few sites you can still get recordings of his music. If you're up for some music that speaks to you, and reminds you of the simple things in life that we take for granted, this is it. This album continues to help me through my tough times I am going through. He is feature on the album "Playing for Change" which is amazing as well. Roger showed the world, just how wonderful it is.... God bless
