The Winnipeg folk/roots duo Roger-Roger will perform in Lloydminster Feb. 9 following the release of their debut album, Fairweather, Jan 15.
Lucas and Madeleine Roger are twin siblings who will hold an album release show in Winnipeg Jan 17 to kick start a string of Western Canadian tours dates.
The singer-songwriter twins will perform at the Root.
Both the Rogers play guitar and harmonize on each other’s songs.
The twins are the offspring of producer/engineer/musician Lloyd Peterson who co-produced Fairweather.
The brother and sister act has a knack for songwriting that must have something to do with growing up in a recording studio according to their biographies.
“They each bring their expansive creativity to the project and wholeheartedly embrace their differences, fusing Madeleine’s magnetic sweetness alongside Lucas’ unruly charm,” said promoter Fritz Media.
“Together, they bring a balance of folk, roots, and rock inspired songs in a beautifully produced album that makes for a remarkable first recording.”
The Roger twins haven’t always played music together.
Lucas used to front Winnipeg rock and roll outfit Modern Man and spent time rebuilding hot rods, while Madeleine immersed herself in theatre, kayaking and travel.
Fritz noted although they often sang together at family campfires, they didn’t officially collaborate in their creative efforts until Lucas overheard Madeleine quietly playing her first batch of songs in their living room.
Apparently he dug what he heard and Roger-Roger was born with a nod from Madeleine.
Their Fairweather album was made possible through a successful kickstarter pre-sale campaign.
The album will be for sale on iTunes and all other digital retailers starting Jan. 15.
