Bess Rogers on Lyrical Venus Radio! Tues 2/16

Singer-Songwriter Bess Rogers

Singer-Songwriter Bess Rogers

Bess Rogers was a name that came up a lot when I was getting to know several other guests I’ve had on Lyrical Venus.  It got me thinking that if all these great people liked Bess I probably would too.  I kept meaning to check out her site, and not quite managing to get there.  Then a few months ago I found out from one of Allie Moss‘ updates that the two of them had teamed up to offer a free download from each of their new EP’s.  They don’t call ’em hooks for nothing people!  One listen to Bess’ song I Don’t Worry and I was hooked.

I’m not the only one either – whether it’s for touring, backup, podcasting, YouTube shorts or television performances, her talents are in high demand with people like Allie Moss, Allison Weiss, Ingrid Michaelson and Jenny Owen Youngs, to name a few.

Bess’ Travel Back EP takes the listener on a trip through a rich, varied aural landscape. In less than 20 minutes you can go from rip-roarin’, foot-stompin’, hand-clappin’ rockers like Everything to Lose, to the stripped down, bittersweet, vocal showcaser Yellowbird and back to tapping your toes again with I Don’t Worry.  And then if you’re like me, you’ll go back to the beginning of the album and hit play again!

Check out this video of Bess performing I Don’t Worry live with a band at Rockwood Music Hall on November 28, 2009:

I have a feeling Bess’ name is going to keep popping up a lot more for years to come, I don’t see how anything could hold her down!

Don’t be like me, now that you are in the know, get yourself to Bess’ sites right away for tour information, song samples, photos, videos and to buy her albums:
