Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers / Press

“Grand prize winner in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest”

“There are musicians....and then there is Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers. With an already impressive resume that includes a John Lennon Songwriting award, being a founding editor of Acoustic Guitar magazine and regular contributor to NPR's All Things Considered, Rodgers still passionately works to move his chosen art forward.”

Amy Robbins - WCNY Connected

““Having come to appreciate the art of songwriting while living in Nashville, I realized the difference between a writer, an artist, and an entertainer. Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers is one of those unique talents who manages to embrace all three. Unlike so much of pop culture, the lyrics to his original music clearly come from his heart and soul; his mastery of the guitar is a work of art; and his attentiveness and interaction with the audience is warm and genuine. JPR was a most welcome addition to our Evening of Story & Song music series.” ”

Mark Kaufman - Fernandina Beach, FL

“Folk music with a serrated edge...a magical blend of storytelling, driving flattop guitar, and earthy percussion.”

Andy Ellis - (Guitar Player, Frets)

“Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers balances solemnity with an almost-hidden playfulness in this music. The melodies are spare and direct, and three strings are seldom used when only one is called for. Give him a listen.”

“Songs that fill the senses. ”

Mark Bialczak - The Post-Standard

“Dangerously close to genius without the bad aftertaste... Amazing set of songs.”

““Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers is one of the finest presenters we have had for our Guitar League organization. He comes armed with tons of insider information and informed insights on a wide spectrum of the music world.””

Dick Ward - Guitar League
