The Rogers / Bio

The Rogers, hailing from Oakland CA, are bringing you their own take on Americana. Borrowing from classic alternative country, folk rock, and southern indie classics such as REM for their sound, the singer Walter Nix expels his highly emotional lovelorn lyrics, surrounded by often swirling guitar leads, and rock steady rhythms. Although their love for the classic CA sound is evident(The Byrds, Grateful Dead, Buffalo Springfield, The Band, Gram Parsons), The Rogers are not an all out jam band. However they are not afraid to enthrall you out to the dance floor to Shake That Thang. So if a culmination of the swirling psychedelic sounds of The Jesus and Mary Chain, and the Pop sensibilities of John Lennon and Wilco are your bag, The Rogers are your ticket to ride.

The Rogers have been working with Folk/Country engineer Eliot Curtis at Tones On Tail Studios in Oakland in effort to crank out their freshman full length LP.

The Rogers in their life of performing together, have performed with some other talented artists from the Bay Area, and fit in well in the Country and Folk repertoire of artist that the talented are has to offer. Most notable of these experiences has been sharing the stage at The Great American Music Hall on a bill put together by everyone's favorite promoter Shelby Ash, featuring The Dirty Hand Family Band, as well as The Famous, The Shants, and The Hot Pink Feathers (Burlesque).

"They have quite a complicated list of ingredients to their sound, which is most easily described as “Americana.” Steven Short - Crosscurrents KALW

"That man(Walter Nix) is a TRUE outlaw. Ain't no hipster bullshit comin' outta them boys. - Brendan O'Loughlin - The Jaunting Martyrs
