Mark Rogers - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Twangy electric and swaying acoustics contribute to a warm, comforting sound to kick things off on Mark Rogers’ recent track “Right Here”. The tempered vocals and catchy twang make for an immediately digestible aesthetic and one that’s considerably accessible. Guitar work is impressive and quaint, with the “what you’re doing right here” hook providing a soaring and pleasant melody, in addition to the energetic organ-laden bridge around the two-minute mark — personally, my favorite moment, and one that reminds fondly of vintage power-poppers like Teenage Fanclub. The track shows strong songwriting that provides a familiar stylistic formula, but one with precision in regard to production and melodic cohesion.”

Mark Rogers is a singer/songwriter from Virginia. Like many of his generation, he grew up “absorbing” every Beatles album and learning his craft from the masters. In high school, he was a guitarist, bassist and harmony singer for a DC¬-based bluegrass band called Tennessee Flying Goose. After college in the early/mid 80s, Mark followed the chime of McGuinn’s 12-string in search of Zevon’s Los Angeles. He headed a Cosmic American band in LA and played many of the “Paisley Underground” clubs in Hollywood. He put his guitar down in the 90’s and 00’s to raise a family in Washington, DC. In 2010, a number of factors contributed to the rediscovery of his music, not the least of which was reconnecting with “the one who got away”. Life’s funny that way.

In 2017, Mark released his first solo EP entitled “Rearranged” and plans to finish the LP in 2018. You’ll recognize a wide variety of musical styling’s, but when it comes down to it, his music is acoustic guitar-based featuring well-crafted hooks, nice vocal harmonies, thoughtful lyrics, a bit of folk rock jangle and a pinch of bossa rhythm just to keep things in order.
