Many, many things could be said about Rogiérs (pronounced “Ro-ghe-ay”). Some may recall his 2005 single with the Platinum Pied Pipers & Mark de Clive-Lowe on the underground hit “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.” Others know him for his 2008 debut album single “Hollywood Story,” the hot collaboration with Robert Glasper and Bilal. Yet others recognize Rogiérs as the voice of jazz-fusion group Soul Cycle, and a few fans still refer to him as Alicia Keys’s former keyboardist and background singer. Whatever comes to mind, since 2002 Rogiérs has established himself as a premier voice within the echelon of independent R&B, soul, jazz, and deep house music artists. He has independently released two albums, two EPs, and various singles and compilations, receiving airplay in the U.S., Europe, Canada, Russia, Australia, Japan, and more. His next album, titled theshedding, drops later this year.
