Roger Roger is a sibling folk/roots duo from Winnipeg, Canada. Twins Lucas and Madeleine Roger are both singer-songwriters who have joined forces, each playing guitar and shamelessly harmonizing all over each others' songs. The offspring of producer/engineer/musician Lloyd Peterson, the twins have a knack for songwriting that must have something to do with growing up in a recording studio. They are quickly becoming known for the blend of their vocals, their genuine vibe, and compelling storytelling.
Their debut album "Fairweather" - which reached the No. 1 spot on the National Folk/Roots/Blues charts - showcases the twins' diverse songwriting skills, and is filled with harmonies and thoughtful arrangements. It was recorded in Winnipeg at Paintbox Recording with co-producer/engineer Lloyd Peterson (The Wailin' Jennys, The Weakerthans), and mixed by John Whynot (Kathleen Edwards, Bruce Cockburn). Madeleine drew and designed the album artwork, and Lucas built some of the guitars that were played in studio.
They have spent 2016 zig-zagging across Canada and writing new songs from their home in Winnipeg. Visit their website for upcoming shows.
"Two superbly talented and highly original singer-songwriters who I believe will carry the torch for great Canadian music into the future. Excellent musicianship and innovative, interesting compositions... and they’re so darn young... I hate them.”
- Greg Leskiw (The Guess Who, Mood Jga Jga)
