Brian Rogers

ABOUT

Brian Rogers makes Quirky, weird hip-hop featuring live bass that’s hella funky. Meant to thump you in the chest so turn it up…

(Videos and Bio below)

I love this video because my friend Justin and I did it with just elbow-grease, blood, sweat and tears- Just a couple independent artists DIY-ing it with more time available than money, and that’s fo sho💯

 

PRINCE COVER – “THE BEAUTIFUL ONES” on bass and vocals

I pulled out my phoned and filmed this this the day Prince died. This was probably my favorite song of his. I wanted to do it in a totally unique way, to honor the spirit of The Great Purple One.
 

“Really great video – great arrangement & production in the song. Love your voice. Congrats! Great Work.” –Derek Sivers, creator of CD Baby

Short Bio

Crhis Tucker and Larry Graham and me

Chris Tucker and Sly & the Family Stone’s Larry Graham

Brian has opened for Blues Traveler and members from Dave Matthews Band. He’s performed with Sly and The Family Stone’s Larry Graham at the storied music venue, Yoshi’s in Oakland, California.

Brian’s drumming has appeared on MTV’s Laguna Beach, and he even sang and played a private party for Chris Tucker. His music has taken him across the United States to Mexico, Vietnam and Nicaragua.

He’s released 2 solo albums, but perhaps more importantly his Northern California music team NUSAM (Nicaraguan U.S.A. musicians) recorded 67 songs for 25 Nicaraguan artists for free, and donated school supplies to their village’s children (learn more at arealpurpose.org).

He has performed at High Sierra Music Festival and Kaboo Music Festival in San Diego, which featured Ben Harper, Michael Franti, Zak Brown Band, The Roots, Snoop Dogg, No Doubt and more.

Brian is twice inducted into the SAMMIES Hall of Fame– Once as a singer, once as drummer (As a drummer, he has opened for Warren G. and Yo-yo Ma)

NOTE: When his mother forced him to play when he was 11, he chose the clarinet. Brian still squeaks around on it once per year.
