Mark Rogers is a BMI-published singer/songwriter with unique pop sensibilities.His musical heritage, dating back to high school, is what is now considered pure Americana. After college, Mark followed the chime of McGuinn’s 12-string in search of Zevon’s Los Angeles. In the 80’s, he headed a Cosmic American band in LA and played some of the loneliest clubs in Hollywood. An experience that contributed to his decision to spend the 90’s and 00’s raising a family in Washington, DC. In 2010, a number of factors conspired resulting in the modern proliferation of his songwriting, not the least of which was reconnecting with “the one who got away” a long time ago.
On June 15th, 2018, Mark released his 2nd EP entitled “Qualifiers” representing his very best work to date. The musical press seems to have taken notice with glowing reviews in “No Depression” and other prominent music mags and blogs. His music reestablishes the boundaries of Americana with a healthy dose of Pop, Folk/Rock, and some cool Bossa rhythm, just to keep things in order. Qualifiers is available to stream and/or download at all the usual sites. The CD may be purchased at CD Baby or on his bandcamp page. Mark resides in eastern Virginia and tours with a 5-piece band.
