About Me
Ben Rogers is a Canadian born Americana/Folk-sludge artist and a true storyteller the likes of Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan. His style is archaic but refreshing to the ear; the melodies are timeless, the lyrics powerful and penetrating. Rogers is reintroducing murder ballads, grit, and historical events back into folk music in his own unique way. The songs are impeccably simple yet filled with vivid images that tell timeless tales of crime and consequence, betrayal, racism, god, war and the human condition sung by a voice of smoke-damaged velvet soaked in Tennessee Whiskey. Whether Rogers plays with his band, on his own, or on occasions when he’ll conjure an onslaught of fellow musicians from Basketball and Mezamazing to frolic onstage and improvise, the audience is engaged from start to finish by the energy and sincerity of the performance.

Rogers has shared the stage with artists like Luke Doucet, Josh Martinez, C.R. Avery and has worked in the studio with renowned musicians including Carolina Liar, Roger Manning (Beck, Jellyfish), Jesse Zubot (Drip Audio/Zubot and Dawson), and Big Sugar frontman Gordie Johnson.

Rogers will be touring extensively throughout North America and Europe in support of his debut, self-titled album that will be released in early September of 2010. The 5-track conceptual EP entitled “ The Bums of Easy Street” is a collection of stories about the underbelly of society; the destitute, the mad, the drug addled and the abused. “Ben's voice stands front and center,” writes Herohill.com. “Even when he shifts into a more Dylan-esque folk track like The Bums of Easy Street, he's engaging and 100% believable. He can sing about Cowboys and Indians (although again the 7-minute slow burner is more about racism than your typical Western nare-do-wellism), dust bowl epics or broken hearts and you never question the sincerity of his characters." From the epic opening track The Dealer to the anthemic closer Goodnight Forever, the record will leave listeners spellbound.

London-based singer-songwriter looking for house concerts

Hi all, I'm a London-based singer-songwriter with an album coming out at the end of summer, looking to play some house concerts around London - or, generally, the South of England. From what I've noticed, house concerts are quite common in Germany (and a few other European countries), but not sure if so much in the UK? I'm new to this scene - I have giggled a lot but so far only at 'regular' venues (festivals, pubs, etc). Now that I discovered that such a thing exists, I would really love to…See More
