Roger Len Smith (from the album Anything Goes available as a self-release)
Returning after a nine-year recording hiatus, Roger Len Smith entered co-producer AJ Downing’s studio in Wimberley Texas, the pair both helming the recent release, Anything Goes. Over the sway of rhythm, Roger Len Smith joins humanity together in the color-blind freefalling possibilities of title track as Anything Goes lays down a determined beat to fill “Empty”, surrounds “Rainy on a Sunny Day” with Country sunshine, and pursues a snaggly guitar sliding through “Leaving It All Behind”. The musical wheel spins on Anything Goes, the styles in line with the album title as Roger Len Smith borders the natural Americana tones of the music with Country-tinged Folk (“House of Cards”) and strutting Rock rhythms (“Got to Thinking”).
Joining a stellar cast of players, Rami Jaffee (The Wallflowers, Foo Fighters) offers keyboards and Kim Deschamps provides dobro, pedal steel, and lap steel to compliment Roger Len Smith on guitar, bass, harmonica, percussion, and keyboards. Anything Goes opens its doors by putting a Country Rock’n’Roll beat in first cut “Can’t Wait for Another Day” and shares the story-song tale of “Zander and Zoey” as Roger Len Smith plugs in and turns it up “Down at Juniors”.
