VIDEO PREMIERE: PILGRIM REFLECTS ON LIFE AS MUSICIAN WITH STOMPING BLUES ROCKER “HIGH ON THE BANKS”
No Offense, Nevermind, Sorry, the latest release from Tulsa-based Pilgrim, will be released on June 25th via Horton Records. The album leaves no doubt that frontman and guitarist, 37-year-old Beau Roberson, is a gifted songwriter whose powerhouse vocals are a perfect match for his profound lyrics. It’s all here – redemption, betrayal, loss, and love. Each song a perfectly crafted musical short story waiting to unfold.
A competitive wrestler from the time he was young, Beau picked up his first guitar at 14. He discovered it at his Grandmother’s home in Pampa, TX after she passed away.
“I took it home, and that’s where it all started,” Beau recalls. “I never took lessons, I just kind of locked myself in the room and learned to play.”
Growing up, the Roberson house was full of music. Beau’s mom was a piano teacher who, according to Beau, was always singing around the house – everything from Aretha Franklin to Willie Nelson.
Never a fan of labeling, even as a kid, Beau’s musical influences ranged far and wide.
“The first two CDs I ever bought with my own money were two ‘Greatest Hits’ collections, Bob Dylan and War,” he notes.
Even now, you can hear those diverse influences in his writing. Like the best music, No Offense, Nevermind, Sorry is difficult to fit into the tight confines of any one genre. But make no mistake; this album is a superb collection of eloquent songs from a very promising talent whose music truly belongs on a national stage.
