What are people saying about Skylar Rogers?
"In a dozen 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 Ludmerer, 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."
-Fidel Beserra, Blues Rock Review || Read full review here.
"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"!"

"Skylar is a fantastic singer and person! I'm excited to see where her career goes! She deserves it all!"
-Paul Niehaus IV, Blue Lotus Recordings
"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
"Count Skylar Rogers as one of the up and coming blues singers and songwriters to keep track of. Skylar Rogers and the Blue Diamonds made a major impression on blues fans when they opened up the Prairie Crossroads Blues Fest 2019. From belting out classics to sharing her personal journey, she's making a name for herself in the blues scene. "
-Lorri Coey, WEFT, Champaign, IL
"Skylar Rogers has a lot of energy and pizzazz, and brings a raw honesty to every performance. The blues world betta look out!!"
-Annika Chambers, 2019 Blues Music Award winner, Vizztone recording artist
