Thanks for visiting my site. Below is the “info” on me thus far in this life.
Solo-artist & one-man-music-machine Russ Rogers lives and breathes music in dedicated ways that are often talked about, but rarely done. Writing at the extraordinary pace of nearly a song a week, this humble & skilled singer songwriter has involved himself heavily in every possible aspect of making music not only his career, but his lifestyle completely.
For the past twenty-plus years Rogers has been integral to the indie music scene in South Florida, playing with a diverse line-up of bands and refining his skillset in a variety of genres. While continuing to chart the course for his main band, A New Way To Live Forever – Russ Rogers, now presents a solo project and full catalog, bringing extensive experience to the studio & stage and the true adaptability needed to become successful in any genre he takes on. Being the sole-songwriter in each and every band he’s been a part of – it’s the pure heart & authenticity that Rogers puts into everything he does that has earned him the respect of his peers, a wealth of supportive fans and the extraordinary music he makes that comes out as haunting and as honest as music can get.
After having released his EP Skeletons in late 2013, his established regimen of dedication in all-things-music from writing, singing & playing to programming and recording has seen Russ Rogers inspired like never before. Carrying that spark straight into 2014, he’s been busier than ever writing songs for upcoming solo releases, in addition to his third EP with his band A New Way To Live Forever. Never one to sit-still, Rogers continues to push himself to break new musical ground daily and makes every effort to grow & expand his skills and explore new musical terrain.
With his timeless sound echoing some of the truly diverse & wild-successes found in music throughout the decades like Elvis Costello, Go West, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Better Than Ezra and Dog’s Eye View – the sincerity in the tones & textures of the music of Russ Rogers resonate and connect with the people listening every bit as strong as these great pop/rock bands once became famous for. Playing these melodic songs in his own creative & unique style; his music is raw & real – rare qualities to find in any genre associated with modern-day pop. This is music with true grit.
