Rogers: “It’s a visit to those hard places that most people put to the back of their psyche and build a wall around. This album is a truer reflection of myself, my stories, where I’ve been and where I hope I am now. It’s music for the travelled soul, those folk who have seen a lot of life and can relate to the sentiments of the songs.”
Turn Up The Volume: Songsmith Lee Rogers‘ main instrument is his warmhearted Americana voice. Whether he sings a sad or happy song there’s always a cordial and welcoming attraction for the listener, like with that Belfast Cowboy on his moody lullabies.
Rogers opens up his heart and soul with introspective ballads (Silent Song / Barefoot In The Basement / The House / Homeward Bound / Won’t Find Me) as well as energetic outpourings (Everytime / Haunted and absolute standout Life And Lies). Rogers feels at times lost, at times found and he embeds his mixed emotions in a sepia-colored open book record. Life isn’t a merry-go-round, therefore a comforting voice like Rogers‘ can be a great companion to have around.
