27 August 2022

Artist: LEE ROGERS
Who: Singer-songwriter from the small town of Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland.

Single: UNEASY LOVE
One of the highlights of his new, 2nd album  Gameblood
(you can read TUTV’s review here)

Rogers about the song: “I once travelled around Australia with a beautiful woman who set me on lots of the better paths I have taken in life, but she left the planet for her next journey a while back. I later had a dream that I was in an old car we had out there, driving in the middle of nowhere, listening to the only tape we had in the car, which was the album ‘Mule Variations’ by Tom Waits. I got excited when I looked round and saw her in the passenger seat, sun-bleached hair, tanned skin, bare feet on the dashboard. She then started glitching in and out of vision, like she was going to disappear completely. I woke up gutted, went to my studio with tears in my eyes and wrote this song.”

About the video: “It wasn’t easy and seemed to give my director Jamie Neish and I the run around! However, when he came up with the idea of projectors and leaning a little into film
noir style visuals, I knew we were onto something.”

A grand voice, a romantic song and a melancholia-colored video clip combined have all it needs to send shivers down your spine. This is what this Irish songsmith does with heart and soul, here and on all the way on his new longplayer.

Heart And Soul Americana From Northern Ireland – LEE ROGERS Has His 2nd Album ‘GAMEBLOOD’ Out

20 May 2022

Artist: LEE ROGERS

Who: Singer-songwriter from the small town of Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland.
His musical inspiration was drawn from classic voices outside of the tensions in
his homeland. Bill Withers, Marc Cohen, Tom Waits, and other great ones.

New album: GAMEBLOOD
Released: 13 May 2022

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.
