MetroPulse Magazine says, "One of the virtues of Rodgers' writing is it's tautness and brevity. He has a knack for melodies that stick to your ribs, married to deeply considered, deeply felt lyrics".
kit rodgers writes songs and sings them. sounds simple, eh? nothing could be further from the truth. fact is, rodgers gives emotion a lyrical voice and his approach to music is anything but simple. from his stripped down acoustic debut cd, "Naked Coffee" to his full out pop follow up release, the lyrics are the focus and he makes certain to move you, regardless of the genre' or style.
growing up in shreveport, l.a., helped to develop kit's love of regional folk music. a move to georgia then placed him right in the middle of the diverse atlanta music scene. it was there that he found his true voice. touring extensively as lead vocalist for the alternative rock group, "Clouds Of Magellan", and later as part of the folkpop trio, "Draper, Reynolds & Rodgers", kit developed into a seasoned performer, capable of reaching any audience with his engaging voice and stage presence. he soon struck out on his own, only to gain immediate notoriety as a soloist. since, he has performed in notable listening rooms, festivals and venues all across the eastern united states and has shared the stage with many fine artsts, establishing himself as one of thier peers.
with a second release, "Some Peculiar Potion", it's clear that he's not finished marking his path with musical milestones. moving easily from the folk/singer-songwriter genre' and bursting full force onto the pop scene, his approach to music has never changed...the lyrics still matter, and he continues to move you.
