Ed Rogers has been entertaining audiences for well over a decade as a singer, songwriter, guitarist and drummer. With his powerful voice and distinctive flat-picking acoustic guitar style, Rogers crosses genres to explore the connections between country, folk, rock and blues music. He draws on personal experience to write vivid, sometimes offbeat original songs.

Ed began performing in Austin, Texas in the late 90’s. After migrating to Fort Worth, he found inspiration playing with an outlaw band of pickers and songwriters called Gypsy Troubadours. Rogers released Misery and Gold in 2003 and began performing solo, sharing the stage with luminaries like Bruce Robison, Jim Lauderdale and the late Steve Fromholz. An experienced studio musician, Ed has recorded at world-class facilities including the legendary Sun Studio and Ardent Recording Studios, in Memphis, Tennessee.

These days, Ed splits his time between solo performancess, and as a sideman for various acts, currently including the matthew show (guitar) and No Class (drums).
