Many things could be said about the singer-songwriter-producer Rogiérs (pronounced Ro-ghe-ay). Some recall his 2005 Platinum Pied Pipers hit remake of “50 Ways to leave your lover" (prod. by Mark de Clive-Lowe, Waajeed). Others know his 2008 critically acclaimed album debut Life & Music: All of It., which produced the single “Hollywood Story," a collaboration with Grammy winners Robert Glasper & Bilal. He has also been the warm voice on three albums with Jesse Fisher and Soul Cycle, behind Stax recording artist and Grammy nominee N’Dambi; and some still remember Rogiérs as Alicia Keys’ “keyboardist, organist and background singer." Whatever comes to mind, Rogiérs’ musical portrait has established him as one of the music industry’s premier voices for over 15 years; particularly in the echelon of independent artists in Soul, Jazz, R&B and Deep House music.

His most recent album theShedding was released in 2014 and featured the loving “Good To Know You" and the ever powerful “Messed Up On Love" whose VEVO music video was viewed over 40,000 times in its debut week. Other honest singles like “Come Into My World", “Again," “The Walls" and international releases with DJ Andy Compton (The Rurals, UK) showcase his adept range of vocal stylistics and songwriting ability across key genres and sub-genres in Jazz, Soul, Deep House and Contemporary R&B. Throughout his career Rogiérs has enjoyed international support from commercial radio, celebrity DJ’s, NPR, Okayplayer, Vibe Magazine, Rolling Out Magazine, Jazz Times and garnered three SoulTracks.com Reader’s Choice Award nominations, the 2015 award for Song of the Year,  “I Found A Groove" and newly released singles on Viva Recordings, Tony Records and Tokyo Dawn Recordings (2016).

Rogiérs has earned warm reception with international audiences-most recently with multiple tours in Spain; headlining the Terrazza Jazz Festival (2013), Sala Apolo and Jamboree (Barcelona), Sunset Jazz Club (Gerona) and conducting master vocal/performance classes at the Taller de Músics, Barcelona last year. In 2016 the District of Columbia officially named Rogiérs an Artist Fellow in a program which collectively awarded over $3 million to individual musical artists and creators.  This year in 2017 Rogiérs plans to continue touring and working with artists and producers across the board. He currently has a new new Soul-Fusion album in development for a fourth quarter release.

Podrían decirse infinidad de cosas sobre el cantautor, productor y músico Rogiérs. Algunos recordarán su single de 2005 realizado junto a Paltinum Pied Pipers y Mark de Clive-Lowe “50 Ways to leave your lover", que fue un el hit mundial underground. Otros lo conocen por su primer single, “Hollywood Sory", editado en 2008, con la intensa colaboración de Robert Glasper y Bilal, galardonados en los premios Grammy en las categorías de Jazz – Música Alternativa. Otros seguramente lo reconozcan como cantante en el grupo de jazz-fusión Soul Cycel, mientras que otros lo siguen conociendo como el antiguo teclista y corista de Alicia Keys.

Sea lo que sea por lo que Rogiérs nos venga a la mente, desde 2002 su itinerario creativo lo ha establecido como una de las primeras voces del elenco de artistas independientes de R&B/Soul/Jazz/House. Iconos musicales tan eclécticos como Questlove (de The Roots) o Lo Down Loretta Brown (conocida como Erykah Badu) han pinchado sus discos en sus sets de DJ. Y entre sus dos discos independientes, dos EPs, varios singles y recopilaciones, sus singles han aparecido en emisoras comerciales especializadas en R&B-Urban/Pop de Estados Unidos, Europa, Canadá, Rusia, Australia y Japón, cosa que le ha merecido la atención de foros y revistas como Okayplayer, Vibe Magazine, SoulCulture y IDJ Magazine, entre otras publicaciones internacionales. Rogiérs mantiene un calendario activo de actuaciones en EE.UU. y el resto del mundo para sus fans, celebridades y músicos entusiastas que promueven sus lanzamientos. Las últimas grabaciones de Rogiers se mueven con referencias cruzadas en los ámbitos del R&B alternativo, la música Electrónica y el Soul House, con algunos de los mejores productores de la industria discográfica. Su disco más reciente, “theshedding" será editado en Marzo 2014.
