Inspired by a broad range of singer/songwriters, Roger Ortega had a dream at a very young age. At the age of 14, Roger started to realize his dream of singing/songwriting, when he started a pop group. This group took Roger from the midwest city of Topeka, KS to the bright lights of New York City.
With a knack for catchy hooks, memorable melodies and storytelling lyrics, he realized that his talent extended beyond just performing. His songwriting ability garnered him songs that are more than just that-they are vivid pictures of moments in time. With his ability to elicit an emotion in just a few words or with a slight melodic implication, he not only captures the listeners imaginations, but their hearts and souls. "Music is the soundtrack to our lives." He says, so he means every word that he writes.
RO released his first album "RnBPoPWrytr" in April of 2012 on Mena Keys Records. "RnBPoPWrytr" reached #62 on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts. He has since grown his fan base with a loyal following that he affectionately refers to as his "RoRo's".
Roger is now working on his sophomore album, due in the first quarter of 2013.
