Eclectic, modern music for the Here & Now
With his third album – “Three’s A Charm” – Son Roberts presents the most eclectic and cinematic of his albums. It brings together a startling array of styles and players, from Blues stalwarts to newbies on the Blues scene, in a collaboration that delivers a fresh take on the Blues from a distinctly urban Canadian perspective.

We were all charmed into doing it – for lucre, love, lust or larceny. This music brought us together, tore some of us apart – but that’s a whole other story. Many thanks to all y’all who are still of the cloth.
This album is dedicated to my mother, Joan Roberts, who sang to me as a child. I hear her strong voice to this day. And to my love, my always, Nancy McGovern.
