Nathan Rogers has shown without a shadow of a doubt that he is a master of all styles and arrangements of roots music in his debut CD, True Stories. He takes you from groovin' Cajun Blues in Can't Sit Still and The Packhorse Blues. Beautiful, evocative ballads include Mary's Child, The Rising Tide and Three Fishers. A fiddle-propelled reel, The Ballad of William and John Gibson, tells about an alien abduction on the prairies of Saskatchewan and showcases the talent that explodes when Nathan invites J.P. Cormier into the studio. Kill Your TV begins with the rare and out of the ordinary proficiency Nathan has at Thubban throat chanting. No, that is not a didjeridoo you are hearing. Nathan really can sing two different notes at once. Tuesday Morning takes us full circle to good ole' fashioned rock and roll but it keeps within the folk tradition by spinning a good yarn. Nathan truly has shown his musical ability by stretching out and giving something for everyone.
