Bio

Jeff Rogers (born 15th July 1980) is a singer-songwriter from Ottawa, Canada. His influences include Stevie Wonder, B.B. King, Donny Hathaway, Ray Charles and Jamiroquai.Having discovered the musical potential of their son early on, Jeff’s parents encouraged him to develop it further by providing him with his first piano and music lessons. Since then, Jeff’s taken up saxophone, guitar, and developed his voice to accompany his piano playing. Now predominantly a singer and piano player, he has earned repute as a dueling piano player based out of Ottawa as well as a member of the southern rock groups The Cooper Brothers and Silver Creek.
After the release of his blues-inspired, self-titled debut album in 2007, Jeff appeared at numerous festivals opening for various acts including Norah Jones, Taj Mahal, Colin Linden, Sonny Landreth, and The Downchild Blues Band.
In 2012 Jeff released his second album entitled "Let It Show", a decidedly R&B/Soul record employing a big band with a big sound.  With a host of talented musicians on board, The Jeff Rogers Band brings a joyful, funky and energizing sound to the stage that is sure to get your toe tapping.

Testimonials and Reviews

His voice practically bowls you over with intensity, as sweet, rich and gooey as molasses in a heatwave. Behind him, an 11-piece band made up of top-notch Ottawa musicians locks onto the groove, and takes it over the top with an extra helping of grit and polish. You can almost picture Van Morrison, James Brown and Al Green/Prince chuckling in the background.

Jeff Rogers, simply stated... is one of Canada's greatest talents as far as I'm concerned.

Jeff is a friendly, low key and incredibly talented musician who's on stage presence is quite the contrast from the laid back individual he truly is.

When he performs, he is in complete control with masterful command of the keys and strong vocals that catches anyones attention within earshot. This guy, he's just GOT IT, The IT factor, whatever you want to call it...he possesses it.

Jeff is backed by an incredibly talented band that are versatile in many different genres, very much like himself. I have seen them perform on many different occassions and I find them just as enjoyable as the last time I checked em out. I have introduced many of my friends and listeners to his music and he never disappoints.

Not only do I talk the talk, but I walk the walk... having played, and continuing to play Jeff Rogers tunes on regular rotation @ DAWG FM, where I serve as the Music Director and Afternoon Drive Personality. He will also be part of DAWG FM's second annual CALABOGIE BLUES AND RIBFEST which has boatsed JUNO and MAPLE BLUES AWARD talent, such as David Gogo, Monkey Junk, Steve Strongman and Jack de Keyzer.

He's currently working on his latest album, which I have had the good fortune to preview... and its obvious to me, that he's a motivated, goal driven artist who is always looking to surpass his previous performance, whether it be a live performance, or studio recording.

Jeff Rogers is a phenomenal performer.

"It's one thing to be blessed with natural talent, it's another thing to nurture it and watch it grow.
Jeff is a born musician who just keeps working harder and getting better all the time."

Dick Cooper


 "Jeff Rogers was always a man, musician and talent beyond his years and still is. I first encountered him and his music thru several guest performances on the Doc and Woody Show on CHEZ 106.1fm in Ottawa.
His delicately textured ballads may seem a stark contrast to his roving, rambling, rollicking blues/rock offerings but that just shows us the scope of Jeff's gift.

I'm not alone in this world, either, when it comes to an appreciation of Jeff's innate ability to fill the room with people, fill a void as a guest musician in a band ( .. I site The Cooper Bros. as just one example) or fill your head full of wonderment with his lyrics and playing ability.

I'm not often "wow'd". But, with Jeff, I am."
