**In this episode, Ashley talks to songwriter Michael R.J. Roth about his career. In recent months Michael and his wife relocated to the Florida Panhandle from New Mexico.  In response to his arrival, the local songwriting community welcomed him with open arms. He is the  winning lyricist of the 2019 NSAI LYRIC COMPETITION, the Great American Song Contest and a member of the Dallas songwriters association, he is one of the most prominent lyricists around.**

Roth has been called "a cool dark troubadour...a modern day poet not unlike Townes Van Zandt" and a "Jedi songwriter," evoking a mix of Leonard Cohen, Gordon Lightfoot, Johnny Cash, Jason Isbell and others with lyrics known for their intriguing imagery and "deep, profound truth." Lori McKenna called him "Brilliant."

On this episode Ashley and Michael talk songwriting, performing, stage fright and Michael’s early impressions of Historic St. Andrews
