This artist’s no-fuss, just-an-acoustic guitar-and-a-voice presentation on “Nobody Does It...” and “The Journey” both seem to be recorded live in a coffeehouse. His exceptionally soft, almost tentative touch on the strings and a humorous, off-key attitude at the mic add up to a performer who’s got much more character than commercial prospects. Though he marshals a full band to accompany him on “The Mule,” it’s too poorly recorded and mixed to be an improvement. Though label interest is a longshot for Roszkowiak, there are some listeners who might have an appreciation for his grizzled, off-hand, unaffected, [email protected]! spirit and his obvious knack for clever observations about life and love.
