WESTERN CANADIAN TOUR DATES STARTING ON JANUARY 17th!
LISTEN TO ROGER ROGER - '13 CROWS':
Winnipeg, MB - Winnipeg folk/roots duo Roger Roger are kicking off 2016 with the release of their debut album Fairweather on January 15th. Roger Roger will celebrate the new release with an Album Release Show in their hometown at the West End Cultural Centre on January 17th. The show marks the start of a string of Western Canadian tour dates in support of the album starting in Regina on January 26th. See below for full tour listings.
Roger Roger is truly a family affair. Twin siblings Lucas and Madeleine Roger are both singer-songwriters who have joined forces, each playing guitar and shamelessly harmonizing all over each other's songs. The offspring of producer/engineer/musician Lloyd Peterson (who co-produced Fairweather with Roger Roger), the twins have a knack for songwriting that must have something to do with growing up in a recording studio. They each bring their expansive creativity to the project and wholeheartedly embrace their differences, fusing Madeleine's magnetic sweetness alongside Lucas' unruly charm. Together, they bring a balance of folk, roots, and rock inspired songs in a beautifully produced album that makes for a remarkable first recording.
The Roger twins haven’t always played music together. Their early years saw Lucas fronting Winnipeg rock & roll outfit Modern Man and rebuilding hot-rods, while Madeleine immersed herself in theatre, kayaking and travel. Although they often sang together at family campfires, they didn't officially collaborate in their creative efforts until one fateful night when Lucas overheard Madeleine quietly playing her first batch of songs in their living room. He dug what he heard, grabbed his guitar and an armload of his own tunes, and Roger Roger was born!
Roger Roger's debut album Fairweather was made possible through a successfulKickstarter pre-sale campaign andwill be available online at iTunes and all other digital retailers on Friday, January 15th. Look for Roger Roger on the road, touring in support of the album starting with their Album Release Show in Winnipeg at the West End Cultural Centre on January 17th.
