SongVault Artist Profile
Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
New Acoustic / Singer/Songwriter
If your musical tastes include people like STING, JAMES TAYLOR, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN OR VAN MORRISSON 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 Cafe. 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, his international performances include NXNE (North by North Easst) 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 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 earlier this year to co-write and perform the title track for.

Reviewer: Doug, CEO of BBS Radio
One of the best artists on BBS Radio, if not the best at this time! The CD is nothing short of Brilliant! More songs worth listening to than 2,000 independant artists CDs I've reviewed in the past two years!
''Nevermind'' is sublime and the single ''Love, Love, Love'' wonderfully soulful. ...If you like your rock laid back and blues laced then this could be right up your street" - Pete Whalley, GetReadyToRock.com.
