The first and only time a blues album has claimed the #1 spot in the Baltics came in 2016 when Roots' "Roots Music" LP topped the official Estonian album chart, earning him a Golden Disc award. In 2017, Roots won the 1st Estonian Blues Challenge with the Tammepõld, Roots & Kadakas trio and went on to represent Estonia at the European Blues Challenge in Norway.French and the British blues airplay charts, Roots received a "Bluesman of the Year" award from the UK-based Severn FM's The Blues Hour programme in 2018 just as he had started focussing on the solo guitar work that fills his more recent albums: "Breakfast in September" (2018), "Mississippi to Loch Lomond" (2020), "Tartu Lockdown" (2020) and "Vol. 12" (2023). The latter was launched with a string of shows in Germany, Estonia, and Finland in March and April 2023.
