(Winnipeg, MB) - Winnipeg folk/roots duo Roger Roger have had a whirlwind 2016 so far! After kicking off the year with the release of their critically acclaimed debut album Fairweather, they've been touring non-stop playing plenty of shows across Canada, including dates at Festival Du Voyageur (Winnipeg) and the Tongue On The Post Festival (Medicine Hat). And Roger Roger have no plans to slow down anytime soon! The duo is heading back on the road this summer with another tour starting on August 5th at the Live From The Rock Folk Festival in Red Rock, Ontario. 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.
Released on January 17th, Roger Roger's debut album Fairweather made it to the number one spot on the Earshot National Folk/Roots/Blues Chart due to the success of their first single '13 Crows'. The album was made possible through a successful Kickstarter pre-sale campaign. Following their upcoming tour dates in Ontario and Quebec, Roger Roger will be doing a Homeroutes house concert tour in November and are planning to tour the UK and Europe in early 2017. Fairweather will be released in the EU/UK this October.
Look for Roger Roger on tour this summer, starting on August 5th at the Live From The Rock Folk Festival! Roger Roger's debut album Fairweather is currently available on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers/streaming services.

"'Fairweather' has threads of that life lived so closely and continually to songs and stories, making the worn cliché of “old souls” entirely relevant to their sound together." - The Calgary Herald
"Madeleine’s theatre background lends itself well to writing folk songs that blend elements of real life with quirky fictional characters, while Lucas gravitates towards heavier rock sounds reflecting on the human experience. But 'Fairweather' also manages to find common ground between the two and maintains a sense of cohesiveness." - Vue Weekly
