In an industry where "Indie" means Pop and "Alternative" means Mainstream, Rob Roper is independent of Indie and the alternative to Alternative. Rob likes to say he has one foot in Rock and one foot in Folk.
Born in Jackson, Mississippi, Roper started learning guitar at age 12. The family moved to Dallas, Texas where he spent his teenage years. After college in Houston, he left for Arizona and lived there for many years, playing music with various bands and songwriters. He moved to Denver in 2000, where he is now based. In 2004, Roper took up songwriting. He has played his songs solo and with various band combinations in Denver and elsewhere since 2007.
Roper released a demo EP, "Some Songs I Wrote", in 2007. He followed that with the 2009 EP, "Me". In 2011 Roper released his first full-length album, "Misfit," produced by John McVey at Coupe Studios in Boulder. In 2012 he released an acoustic EP, "The Other Side of Nowhere", featuring Paul Ermisch on violin, co-produced and engineered by Brian Hunter at Sawtelle Studios at Swallow Hill in Denver. In 2014, they decided to name their trio Scupanon. (See Scupanon's Revernation page for more info.)
In 2013, Roper joined the Denver band Dorian as the guitar player and co-songwriter, and played guitar on the band's demo EP. (See Dorian's Reverbnation site for more info.) In 2015 Roper left Dorian to focus on other musical projects.
One of those projects was Total Flower Chaos, a hard rock / psychedelic rock project, which released a 5-song CD called "Roses" in June 2016. (see the Total Flower Chaos Reverbnation site for more info.)
Rob is currently producing EP's for two singer-songwriters.
