My Bio .................
Rev. Roger Anthony Yolanda Mapes: singer/songwriter and alien love child of
Louise Hay and John Waters with a splash of Dolly Parton.
Rev. Roger aka Yolanda was born and raised in Muscle Shoals, Alabama - "The Hit Recording Capital of the World" and the birthplaces of Helen Keller and W.C. Handy. The Muscle Shoals area was populated by an abundance of musicians and visual artists/painters. He began studying music, painting and drawing at a young age with local artists and was encouraged to develop his own unique vision. Roger is influenced by pop, rock, blues, gospel, country, and folk, but doesn�t self-consciously follow any one tradition...combining them all into some hybrid of his own.
