What are people saying about Skylar Rogers?

“Skylar Rogers has a big voice, well suited to the rock-inflected blues she sings. The songs are strong and her voice - part Koko Taylor, part Etta James, part Tina Turner and all Skylar Rogers, with each song getting the treatment that serves it best, leaves no doubt as to who is in charge here. Congratulations to all concerned with this excellent release. Take note - Skylar’s arrived!” 

-Norman Darwin, Blues in Britain 

 

“[Skylar Rogers], from the first track, has what it takes to leave her mark, a powerful and expressive voice, notably in the ballads, an intense and sensitive energy, and know-how and daring.” 

-TED Magazine, Canada 

 

“Skylar Rogers is on fire in this album. Channeled by her voice and her music, this record is far above average. Hell yeah!” 

-Keys and Chords, Netherlands

 

"Skylar Rogers and her soul rockin' blues will get your attention. She packs a lot of punch in her vocals as she holds nothing back, much like a stage performance from Tina Turner."

-The Groove, Rich Davis

 

"In the ten original pieces, Skylar Rogers manages to offer an album in which we regularly feel the influences of artists from Motown and Chess Records, a work in which everything is not necessarily autobiographical but where every word and every riff is full of meaning and sensitivity, which gives titles like "Hard Headed Woman", "Like Father Like Daughter", "Moving On" or even "Insecurities" a character that is both unique and particularly strong."

-Firebreather Album Review, Zicazic (France)

 

"All ten of these are well-written songs. Sky’s the limit, as the rockin’ Rogers’ has arrived."

-Richard L’Hommedieu, Making a Scene, on Firebreather 

 

"Rogers’ vocal skills are powerful. Much like the greats before her, Koko Taylor, Aethra Franklin, and Tina Turner, she can belt out a feisty rocker that will blow the roof of a building and in the next breath, deliver a gospel-infused slow blues tune that will bring a tear to your eye."

-Folk and Tumble Review (UK), on Firebreather

 

"Skylar’s soulful and robust vocal execution and the massive and steady guitar riffs and dramatic solo gave me chills."

"Whether the songs call for power, speed, heaviness or even delicacy, Skylar Rogers always finds the most appropriate tone and the most appropriate intonation so that they find a real dimension, a scale that makes them unique, strong and convincing. Such a willingness to take life as it comes and sink your teeth into it naturally commands respect and admiration, and all the more so when it translates into albums like "Firebreather"!"

-Firebreather Album Review, Zicazic (France) 

 

"She will become known for her different style. I love that it comes from her heart and her life struggles to make her who she is today, a humble young lady who is very giving, and a songbird who has my attention and soon the world. Give her a microphone and in a minute she will win your heart." 

-Ms. Zeno "The Mojo Queen", International Blues Recording Artist, Memphis, TN

 

"Skylar Rogers has a lot of energy and pizzazz, and brings a raw honesty to every performance. The blues world betta look out!!"
