While the intensity of running a music business is enough to keep Mr. Roberts occupied, he recently began composing and arranging music again. His 2013 release, called “A Different Place, A Different Time” was his first attempt at producing his own album after focusing on the business side of music for 15 years.
The classical album includes works derived from his long-time collaborative relationship with musician Jeff Leonard. One of the featured songs was written about Mr. Roberts' daughter Madeleine called “Madeleine’s Lullaby,” with Mr. Leonard contributing the bridge. Rounding out the album is a new composition based on Mozart’s Piano Concerto #23.
