“He has an honesty to his voice, a been-there, lived-it nous that lends his tales credibility and raises his music up a notch or three” Americana UK on Charlie Roth http://www.americana-uk.

“I’m so pleased he’s been able to nail on record what makes him such an engaging performer; he has an absolute devotion to song and a child-like enthusiasm for all the wonders that the world of song can unfold, so these twelve songs are just a sample of what he can do, and just possibly the finest slice of transatlantic folk that you’ll hear this year”.

Flying Shoes Review UK -August 1, 2012
“I have to say he writes as he sings, which is to say that he is thoughtful and heartfelt. I believe, the title track ‘Broken Ground’ is a paean to the land he sprang from, a world that’s disappearing as the young folk don’t hang around anymore. It’s kind of familiar territory for the Americana music scene, but a fine song nonetheless, evocative of wide open spaces”. John Davy, Flyin’ Shoes review England UK

“His singing style and his narrative art are a perfect blend of words and meaningful lyrics” Valsem, Rootstime Netherlands
Alt Country Reveiw Netherlands -November 1, 2012
“A disc, which is currently quite rightly doing really well in the Euro Americana Chart is Broken Ground, the fifth of the American singer-songwriter Charlie Roth. It is the best kind of Americana. A tastefully understated work and wonderfully intimate, really great songs, the ones that make you instantly warm up inside. Strong stories connected to strong melodies!” Alt- Country Review, Netherlands

Charlie Roth helps bring a message of Peace and Goodwill to Upper Galilee
Menachem Vinegrad, who runs Israel’s leading Roots Music Festival The Jacobs Ladder Festival and broadcasts on Radio Upper Galilee says this of Charlie Roth’s “Christmas at the Fallen Angel Lounge” and Broadcasting a Christmas message in modern Galilee.
“It is a fun song, and pretty universal in its sentiment. I do a combined Hanukkah & Christmas program at this time of the year. There is a minority Christian population here, also some Messianic Jews ( Jews who believe in Jesus as the Messiah, some of whom I know listen to my show) Anyway I think that the message of peace and goodwill is one that should be spread.
I enjoy Charlie Roth , and had intended to include “Candle Song” from Broken Ground , before the single arrived, in time time for the broadcast.
