"Radical Road"

I had never been a part of putting down an entire cd of this caliber, recorded in a single day. The result was truly magical. - Stephen Hogg/Producer

"Rodger Brunning's new CD"

Rodger Brunning's new CD. There's a Moment is one of those rare recordings I have come across that is truly a delight, start to finish. It's emotionally charged vocals are pulled from places deep inside, his heart on his sleeve. This original treasure is certain to move you. - Stephen Hogg - President of Stinkin' Records

"This long-awaited follow-up to Rodger Brunning's 2000 offering,"

This long-awaited follow-up to Rodger Brunning's 2000 offering, Scintilla, is further proof of his seemingly effortless brilliance for writing delightfully catchy songs that encompass a variety of folk, country, blues and rock 'n' roll influences. - Diana Wells -

""There's a Moment""

"There's a Moment" - "Brunning is a songwriter to look out for. His music poignant, his vocal approach understated, his words sometimes oblique. With songs like 'Talking to the Cats", "Wherever I go", and "School" Brunning loads an everyday mioment and spins it into a lasting and haunting emotion." - Lorraine Segato - Parachute Club

"Avoiding the obvious"

By Elizabeth Yates
Expositor Staff/Scotland
Perhaps all artists would work through a devastating loss by channelling their deep emotions into creativity.
But it takes a master to turn the worst of all tragedies -the death of a child-into music that manages to be tuneful, soothing, moving and memorable , all at once...
That's the case for Rodger Brunning, a singer-songwriter and guitarist whose second disc, There's a Moment, is eminently listenable. Brunning's rootsy melodies and distinctive vocals are backed by solid work from The Ravens, a stellar group of musicians, as well as some noteworthy special guests. - Brantford Expositor

Radical Road: " never been a part of doing an entire cd of this caliber recorded in a single day. The result was truly magical. I felt like Butch Cassidy looking over to Sundance saying, "Who are those guys?"... egos did not come into play, they just rode on the groove Rodger set and they were off.

" Rodger Brunning, from the rural town of Scotland Ontario, was a founding member of the country-punk band, "The Cowpaddies", performing in the bars and rural venues of Southern Ontario in the early 70's. From folk to country-punk to his present blend of rockin' country-folk, Brunning has lyrically fused his influences, touching us all with his humor, wit and poignant understatement."

"If only a world-wide consciousness could arise that all division and all fission are due to the splitting of the opposites in the psyche, then we should know where to begin. ...
What does lie within our reach ... is the change in individuals who have, or create for themselves, an opportunity to influence others of like mind. I do not mean by persuading or preaching - I am thinking, rather, of the well-known fact that anyone who has insight into his own actions, and has thus found access to the unconscious, involuntarily exercises an influence on his environment."
Carl G.Jung
