Sexing Up TH' Case for War
'...He mesmerized the audience, everyone's eyes transfixed on stage, holding their breath...' -Cherelle Jardine, Pacific Songwriters Association '(Rogr's) music is incredibly sensual with that edge I like. ..I have to say that the production values on Rogr's CDs are nothing short of incredibly innovative. ..His CD's are an aural journey not to be missed.' -Stephen Emery, RadioGay.ca 'Lee is a strong player, and I imagine that he's invested great time into his performance...' -Michael A. Johnson, Storefront Paper, Toronto 'Some fine melodies and downright invigorating lyrics!' -Ottawa XPress 'Indie Artist of the Week' -CBC's Definitely Not the Opera, August 20-27, 2004 'It's refreshing to see and hear artists wearing their hearts and politics on their sleeves.. (Rogr) uses his talent for roots-folk rockin' to ease his mind and, perhaps raise a few eyebrows, and get a few brains moving.' -Kate Milberry, Vancouver Satellite '(Rogr's 1995 debut CD is) a beautifully-produced, technically near-perfect, thoughtfully-written, musically clean and competent folk-roots album' -Heather Kelly T.O. Nite, Toronto Rogr Lee began in the Toronto live circuit that brought us Ron Sexsmith, Hawksley Workman and Bob Wiseman. He is a prize-winning songwriter who has recorded and performed for over a decade, both solo and as a band-member. From an early age Rogr was musically, spiritually and 'alternatively'-inclined. Now, in his prime (at the crux of our times(!), there emerges a new album, 'Sexing Up th' Case for War', entirely self-produced, and artfully addressing topics like global warming and consumerism. Using acoustic and contemporary soundscapes, imaginative arrangements and poetics, Rogr's current work remains compelling and true.
