Following the enthusiastic reception of his latest single, “Stuck on Stoopid,” today marks the release of an exciting new chapter from the multi-talented Roger Mooking. As a Juno award-winning Hip Hop luminary with an impressive catalog of five albums, a renowned celebrity chef, a gifted visual artist, and the beloved host of Food Network/Cooking Channel’s popular programs “Man Fire Food” and “Everyday Exotic,” Roger Mooking presents his latest musical creation, “It’s My Birthday.” This feel-good and motivational track is a preview from his highly anticipated sixth studio album, “SOUNDBITES.” Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop, “SOUNDBITES” is set to drop on October 20th and will also serve as the musical companion to Roger’s forthcoming book, “Curious Sounds,” scheduled for release on October 24th.
About “Its My Birthday,” Roger Mooking States: “Its My Birthday” (no apostrophe) is a fundamental piece in the arc of the SoundBites album adventure. It bridges the idea that being born is like waking up every morning and the lyrics straddle this idea with every line. The approach in instrumentation, writing, delivery and production is purposefully simplistic as we are (re)entering the world with limited baggage. I personally celebrate my birthday every morning with gratitude and with the goal of creating something. Also, I wanted to make a birthday song as this is something I’ve never done…until now.”
