Roy Roberts

“Bluesman Roy Roberts is an original and there’s no other blues singer or guitarist who can equal his blend of minor-key, soul laced shuffles.” - Roberta Penn, The Independent Weekly

“This man knows a thing or two about soulful music! He gets you to sit back, lean in, and really listen.”
- Scott Bock, Living Blues

“Roy Roberts is a gentleman and musical giant. His vocal delivery distinguishes him as a singer comparable to Bobby Bland, Ray Charles, Tyrone Davis, Brook Benton ...and his guitar licks soar with the best of the riff masters!”
- Stephen Cagle, Music writer, Producer

“A Roy Roberts show is an irresistible musical odyssey, a sweat drenched pilgrimage through the back alleys of the blues and the glory years of soul music. There aren’t many performers on the scene today who know the importance of “entertainment” like Roy Roberts.”
- Gay Erwin, President of the Low-Country Blues Society

“Roy Roberts extraordinary guitarist, a world-class performer, a truly exciting, hard working Rhythm & Blues entertainer!”
- Jerome Cunningham, 2/Hot Blues Records
