Garnet Rogers is a musician with a rich, compelling baritone, able to deliver passionate, poetic lyrics that carry listeners away. Rogers comes to Crossings on Fri., June 21, at 8 p.m.
Rogers offers poetic story lyrics, full of emotion. Whether the song is a ballad, a rock song or an acoustic folk tune, Rogers connects with the audience and the audience connects with the song.
A man with a powerful physical presence – close to six and a half feet tall – and a voice to match, Canadian-born Rogers has turned down offers from major labels in order to maintain control of his music: Tracks on his albums can run seven minutes or longer.
With a smooth, dark baritone voice, an incredible range, and thoughtful, dramatic phrasing, his music, like the man himself, is literate, passionate, highly sensitive and deeply purposeful. An optimist at heart, Garnet sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday. As memorable as his songs, his over-the-top humor and lightning-quick wit moves his audience from tears to laughter and back again.
Rogers asks audience members to bring non-perishable foods or personal care items such as soap or shampoo, to donate to Zumbrota Area Emergency Food Shelf.
