Based in Carrickfergus, just north of Belfast, the music created by Lee Rogers sounds as resilient, gorgeous and scarred as his home turf looks. The sensual, resplendent songs contained on ‘Gameblood’, his long-awaited second album (his debut was in 2006), display an elegiac musical craftsmanship while showing off open-hearted, lyrical storytelling. Rogers comes across as a manly yet tender outcast with an honest musical solidarity to fellow wounded exile-pioneers who have experienced similar rocky relationships and existential pain. Produced by Gareth Dunlop, Rogers describes ‘Gameblood' as “a visit to those hard places that most people put to the back of their psyche and build a wall around. Love, lust, life, death, addiction and lots of spirits and ghosts moving around holding it all together. This album is a true reflection of myself, my stories, where I’ve been and where I hope I am now." The tender, raw yet cinematically sophisticated instrumentation on ‘Gameblood’ is reminiscent of classic folk albums such as John Martyn’s ‘Solid Air’, the soulful craft of Keb Mo’s ‘Blues Americana’ and the glistening if lacerating baroque balladry of Tom Waits' ‘Mule Variations’.
