Taylor Rogers

Taylor Rogers is a singer/songwriter out of Chapel Hill, NC. She recorded her first album, 'crossing bridges' (2012) in Oberlin, OH as part of a folk duo with Caroline Mullis, Wide Branches. In September 2014 she released 'wax and wane' and moved to Chicago where she formed Taylor Rogers and the Plaid Shirts with violinist Sam Sharp (Oberlin), bassist John Nadel (IU), and rotating jazz percussionists. Taylor has performed all over the Midwest and in various festivals such as Oberlin FolkFest and BAMFest. She toured the East Coast in the summer of 2017. Her music is inspired by themes of "connection, of presence, and of embracing the dream-states so necessary to creation" (Beth-Lodge Rigal, WWFaC Greenbook Review). She is currently working on her newest project, a visual concept album, NOA, with Pictureluck Media. The album explores the transformative potential of human vulnerability, for both personal and collective bodies.Through new soundscapes of vocal layering and rhythmic guitar, coupled with stunning cinematography of landscapes and improvised movement performances, Taylor hopes to co-create artworlds which open us into ourselves, so that we then might open into each other.
