The best kept secret in music



A rare occurrence it is when a singer/ songwriter displays an unerring knack for marrying maddeningly catchy pop sensibilities with wonderfully wry life observations. It's rarer still to discover such a talented artist who combines that gift with some of most gut-wrenching and exhilarating guitar playing around. Yet Roger Klug joyfully defied the odds March 28 at the Barrelhouse (22 E. 12th St., Cincinnati). The slender Cincinnati resident seamlessly melded Hendrix-like leads with hummable refrains for more than two hours. Klug, with three CDs to his credit, is scheduled to open today for Paul Cebar and the Milwaukeeans at the Southgate House in Newport, Ky.

Cincinnati-based singer/songwriter Roger Klug has made his mark on the local music scene, not with a flashy stage show or major label record deals, but with great, unforgettable Pop songs. With two top notch CDs under his belt, Toxic and 15 Other Love Songs and his debut Mama, Mama, Ich bin in dem La La Land, Klug has emerged as one of the leading purveyors of quality songcraft, celebrating the power of the Pop song with each note he plays. Live, with his more than capable power trio, Klug runs through songs from both of his albums, making for a most enjoyable cavalcade of unbeatable hooks with a Rock candy center.
