Charlie Rogers, 24, Stilwell, Kan., writes and sings original country music chockfull of Mid-American authenticity. A Midwesterner through and through, Rogers was raised on country music and classic rock. He fuses these two classic genres to create a unique sound that both a new generation and more-traditional listeners can enjoy.
He describes his music as “a fusion between modern country music and classic rock as well as a bit of pop. It can easily be categorized as Alternative Country or Country Pop/Rock.”
Listeners may hear threads of Keith Urban or Lady Antebellum. You also might be reminded of Little Big Town. The music embraces new country with one foot planted in traditional rock. Rogers’ music comes from the heart, filtered through a keen eye for detail. His music conveys a joyful innocence as he paints from a palette of rural imagery with lyrics that never stray far Midwest values.
Among his major influences, Rogers cites the Eli Young Band, Rascal Flatts, David Nail, Hunter Hayes, Keith Urban and The Beatles.
Rogers lives in Nashville, Tenn., and attends Belmont University, where he continues to hone his songwriting talents. Rogers plays piano, guitar, bass, cello and ukulele. Among his arsenal are a Gibson Les Paul guitar, a Rickenbacker, a Taylor T-5, a Collings Triple-O, and a Korg keyboard.
Some noteworthy accomplishments of the band are their featuring in the film Redemption, as well as on its soundtrack. They have also played the Tennessee National Republicans Convention and The Standing Room Only tribute to Charley Pride.
TAR & FLOWERS
Tar & Flowers began in the dingy recesses of a honky-tonk in the west San Fernando Valley and a man named Taylor Hungerford. Inside The Cowboy Palace, in the faces of dancers, players, there were stories of people great and small – stories that Taylor wanted to tell through songs.
While performing as a solo artist, Taylor was approached by engineer and musician Wolf Kroeger to track songs for his new album. The two found in one another a mutual love for the west and cowboy culture. Wolf’s involvement changed the sound of Tar & Flowers from simple folk music to what can best be described as “Western-Americana.”
After booking a featured artist spot at The Lost Knight Pub in Echo Park, Taylor approached Michael Ward, whom he successfully collaborated with on the credits track for the indie game, Diluvion, to play guitar and sing harmonies; Ryan Fultz, a percussionist and composer, to play drums; and Wolf Kroeger to play bass.
Taking from the cosmic-country of Gram Parsons, melancholy musings of The Cowboy Junkies, and finger picking spirit of Skip James, Tar & Flowers has become an experiment. Drawing on depression era roots music of The Carter Family, the folk-rock sensibility of Led Zeppelin and Buffalo Springfield, and the singer/songwriter ballads of Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt, Tar and Flowers keeps one foot firmly planted in the past with an eye toward the unknown.
Broken Halleluyah is a Nashville-based country, rock band captained by singer/songwriter Courtney Graf and producer Lamont “Logic” Coleman. Since 2016, the group has been crafting their debut album. It features a wide variety of songs, showcasing the members ability to seemlessly transcend genres while maintaining the focus; their message is what’s most important.
The fusion of this BMI award winning producer and the soulful vocals of a country rock wonder woman is something to be remembered. Follow their journey @brokenhalleluyah on IG & FB.
David Lorango is a country artist and songwriter who spends his time in Los Angeles and Nashville. The Examiner wrote is “bringing out the country in Hollywood”. David released his debut EP “Ride All Night” in 2015, along with his first music video for his single “Leaves of November”, which was featured on radio stations nationwide and received numerous spins across California.
Since then David has been playing some of the best venues in Los Angeles and playing alongside top tier country acts, including opening for the Josh Abbott Band and Carly Pearce. He just debuted his new songs while co-headlining at the Troubadour with Jon Wolfe.
His brand of feel good, everybody’s welcome country music has taken him across the Southwest, including the honor to play for thousands of our servicemen and women at Camp Pendleton.
David has now released his latest self titled EP “David Lorango” which hit stores and streaming services on August 8th, 2017. He will debuting his latest single and video, All In Already, in November.
LIZ ANNE HILL
Born by the California coast, raised back and forth between a cozy suburb of Los Angeles and a rural mining town in Arizona, the songstress learned to sing, write, and ride at an early age. More comfortable on horseback in muddy boots and bluejeans than beachside in a yellow two piece and white Ray-Bans, Liz Anne Hill blends down-home country roots with a rock energy for a diverse and spellbinding sound – an authentic “California Country”. After lending her powerhouse vocals as a demo singer for top Los Angeles producers, and later touring nationwide as a bass player and backup singer for various pop artists, Hill returned to the reason she initially fell in love with music; songwriting. Songs penned by Hill have charted on Billboard, been featured in animated films and by major airlines. While Liz Anne enjoyed commercial success as in Hollywood as a pop musician, she quietly continued writing songs for herself like those she heard playing out of the old radio in her grandma’s Cochise County kitchen. In 2016, Hill took a leap of faith, left pop music, and committed to recording a full-length country album co-written by Liz Anne and her father, Jake Hill. Armed with an arresting voice, and songs that highlight an irresistible ability to wear her heart on her sleeve, Liz Anne Hill is ready to make her mark on this generation of country music fans.
