If your musical tastes include people like STING, JAMES TAYLOR, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN OR VAN MORRISON then you’re going to love the music of singer song-writer LEE ROGERS. Hailing from Belfast in Northern Ireland, Lee sent out a demo album to various labels and was immediately picked up by UK label Zenith Café. In 2006 he subsequently recorded his debut album ‘Drawing Clocks’ in Italy with noted Italian producer Marco Canepa (Zucchero , Roger Hodgson of SuperTramp)
A great favourite with Ted Kelly at XM Worldspace, Lee’s international performances include NXNE (North by North East) in Toronto, MIDEM in Cannes, Best Of Brits two years in a row at ABBEY ROAD for XM Worldspace and, of course, countless gigs in the UK and Ireland including supporting Australian star TIM FREEDMAN for some of Tim’s solo gigs in the UK. Lee is also off to NYC to do an industry showcase to be recorded and broadcast by XM Worldspace.
Lee has already had tracks on two major feature films; The River King starring Ed Burns for Myriad Pictures and; ‘Maradona La Mano De Dios’ which Lee was asked to co-write and perform the title track for. What are other people saying about Lee Rogers?
