Skylar's soul rockin’ blues sound has been influenced by Tina Turner, Etta James, Billy Joel, and Koko Taylor. Throw in a bit of AC/DC and multiple Motown artists and you have the unique, strong, passionate and energetic Skylar Rogers. Music and faith were primary sources of strength and inspiration for Skylar through not only the bad times but also the best of times. She believes that “music survives the worst, and celebrates the best.”
Skylar successfully launched her debut EP, "Insecurities” and began touring nationally in 2019, including performances at St Louis' National Blues Museum and Beale Street in Memphis.“Like Father Like Daughter” was released internationally by Blind Racoon in September 2020, attaining worldwide airplay, charting on the Roots Music Top 50 Contemporary Blues Songs, and continually charting on the Illinois Roots Music Report. Her full length CD, “Firebreather,” released internationally to high acclaim in January, 2021 reaching #2 on the Roots Music Report for Contemporary Blues Album and seeing airplay of all songs throughout the US, Europe and online.
A 2021 tour is being planned.
"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
