Owen Roberts is unquestionably worldly, and his music shows it. From the Zeppelin he played along with while growing up in Berkeley to the pop vocalists he listened to when he studied in Italy to the acoustic scene he experienced at Haight and Ashbury, he's seen it all. From the sounds of it, he's thought of all these influences, plus taken some inspiration from his current life in New York City. The result: a gritty, folksy acoustic melange that sounds like a product of the Strawberry Music Festival but also manages an edgy side. [JK]
