Mark Rogers Mark Rogers Virginia Beach "Mark Rogers cements his place in the indie folk pop scene as not just a reliably strong composer, but as a sonic force to be reckoned with." – No Depression, June 2018 "I can firmly proclaim Mark Rogers to be one of the artists to watch in this burgeoning folk/rock revival, and his new album Qualifiers a must listen for anyone who is interested in seeing a blueprint of this new scene." – The Indie Source, June 2018 "Qualifiers is pretty much guaranteed to leave you feeling a little more inspired and uplifted than you first were when you sat down to have a listen."- Gas House Radio, June 2018 Mark Rogers is a well-traveled songwriter whose music reminds us of the years we spent scouring lyric sheets and liner notes. When vocal harmony would induce a palpable reaction and words would take us places we couldn’t always describe. Introspective, thoughtful, melodic and soulful. A nod to the past but with both hands on the wheel, Mark’s music endures. With two well-reviewed EPs and an LP scheduled for a June, 2019 release, Mark Rogers continues the American-rich tradition of literary songwriting. Mark Rogers grew up in the Washington, DC area. His high school band mixed Beatle-ish pop with traditional bluegrass. In the early 80s, he moved to LA where he and his new band attempted to revive country rock in the town that had invented it. Playing the same West LA clubs that were home to a new Paisley Underground scene, Mark abruptly left town and returned to DC, just as things were starting to happen. For the next 25 years, he relegated his music to hobby status and raised a family. In 2012, he wrote his first song in decades. Which led to another. And then another. Mark’s new music has charted both in the US and Europe with outstanding reviews in several prominent music pubs and blogs including No Depression (US), MaximumVolume (UK), TheIndieSource, Gashouseradio.com and many more. His music may be purchased at CD Baby or at Bandcamp. Mark resides in eastern Virginia and tours with a 5-piece band. For more information, please see www.markrogerssongs.com.
