Ron Rogers: Video Interview with Oregon Music News


12 Nov

Texas-bred singer-songwriter-guitarist Ron Rogers knows how to tell a story. Rogers is known for his inspired lyricism and the ability to capture strong moods and emotions in the studio. “With this band,” says Roger, “I can easily capture the stuff that’s in my head. Most of these cuts were done in one take, once we nailed the groove”.

Rogers’ band is comprised of some of Portland’s finest – Dave Grafe on pedal steel guitar, Don Campbell on bass and vocals, and drummer Chris Bond. Each is a musical journeyman in his own right who fits seamlessly with Rogers’ music.

Ron Rogers & The Wailing Wind Announce Release of New CD

Ron Rogers & The Wailing Wind Announce Release of New CD

It’s been two years since Portland, Oregon, singer-songwriter-guitarist Ron Rogers and his musical sidekicks, the Wailing Wind, released their acclaimed Country & Eastern CD, but for fans of Rogers’ raw and edgy musical tales of the gritty side of life, the wait will be worth it.

Rogers is set to release Ron Rogers & the Wailing Wind on August 6, 2013 – 12 songs that set a new standard of Roots/Americana/Texas roadhouse music.  He’s well steeped in the solid songwriting traditions of rock, blues and country, but applies a strong working-class sensibility and rough-and-tumble imagery to his lyrical craft. His are songs of protest, of pushing back against the establishment, of hard-working hands, and of making the best of a bad situation.

“To get to this recording,” says Rogers, “we’ve continued over the last couple of years to do what we do best – play live, rehearse, record. Songs come at me from all sorts of different directions. I’ve got a band that’s good at grabbing what I’ve got and laying it down without much fuss. It’s all about storytelling to a cool beat and electric guitars. It’s about as much fun as you can have standing up.”

Some of Portland’s finest and well-seasoned musicians make up the Wailing Wind – Dave Grafe on pedal steel guitar, Don Campbell on bass and vocals, and drummer Chris Bond. Since the release of Country & Eastern, the quartet has become tighter than a rusted lug nut and hotter than a habanero.

Rogers’ sixth CD was recorded in his Portland studio and adheres to his love of analog recording. The disciplined songwriter and journeyman engineer is a master at capturing the live feel of a nightclub or concert stage in the studio setting. He saturates recording tape with the passion and inspiration of single-take performances, preferring mood and feeling to note-for-note perfection.

 

Rogers has also announced the following tour dates:

Friday June 7th Landmark Saloon, 6 pm to 8pm Portland ,OR

Saturday June 8th O’Connors Vault, 8pm to 11pm, Portland, OR

Friday June 14th Fort George Brewery 7pm to 10pm, Astoria, OR

Saturday July 13rd Sandy Arts & Crafts Festival, Sandy, OR

Saturday July 20th Trout Lake Inn, Trout Lake Washington

Friday August 2nd Landmark Saloon 6pm to 8pm Portland, OR

Saturday August 3rd O’Connors Vault 8pm to 11pm Portland, OR
