Somewhere between Saturday night and Sunday Morning with Roger Alan Wade
“Any fool can be happy. It takes a man with real heart to make beauty out of the stuff that makes us weep.” -Clive Barker-
Roger Alan Wade knows the feeling of hitting absolute rock bottom. He hasn’t been shy on his past troubling times. Now, he has beat the odds to not fall in the live-fast-die-young cliche that so many of our heroes did. His story is an epic Rocky-like underdog story of a man going from being on the verge of losing it to coming full circle.
That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 1:31
Nowadays, he is making a glorious sound, armed with a guitar, the truth and a lifetime of both sides of the coin. Nothing fancy, just Southern twang and stories about life the way it really is. The songwriting is the best out there and I challenge you to find better poetry in this day and age. A workaholic bandit who comes to town and is off to the next show emptying his soul to another group that will be won over.
I never have lent my ears more to anyone’s songs and never got tired of them. The crazy songs, happy songs sad songs, and story songs all speak to me. Roger’s songs are somewhere between Saturday night and Sunday morning. A good balance of the yin and the yang of those in bars Saturday night and in church the very next morning. I recently saw this clip and was getting goose bumps on how good, pure and honest it was, Enjoy….
