Dave Rogers releases new single ‘Slow Funk’

The veteran singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer of RnB and soul music known as Dave Rogers has released his latest official single, “Slow Funk.” The single has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the INDY DR record label. Played so deep in the groove that you forget you’re driving beneath the speed limit, “Slow Funk” showcases Dave Rogers as one of the most intriguing indie soul artists the world over, and promises that we can expect plenty more in the years to come.

In addition to the titanic talents of Dave Rogers, himself, “Slow Funk” also bears the heroic skills of veteran keyboardist Brian Morgan, a two-time Grammy winner with the artist, Kashif.

New Jersey’s Dave Rogers cites as main artistic influences Sly Stone, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Miles, Marvin Gaye, the Isley Brothers, and Ed Townsend. Dave Rogers’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. This should not come as a surprise, as Rogers has himself played and performed with many legends of the sound over the years. With an emphasis on that soul-funk sound which the ’70s owned and the ’80s never learned to reproduce, “Slow Funk” by Dave Rogers has a little something for every avid funk and soul listener.

Commenting on his overall goals for “Slow Funk,” Dave Rogers says, “I’ve been in the music business for several years, and I’ve worked on projects you may know. As a solo artist using the name Dave Rogers, I hope you take the time to get to know my new music. Enjoy the variety and tell your friends that haven’t heard me to give a listen.”

Dave Rogers began his career in music on the top shelf working with Marvin Gaye on songs that would be included on Gaye’s monumental “Let’s Get It On” album. He recorded his first music for Al Bell, owner of Stax Records. After attending Fisk University and the Berklee College of Music, Rogers worked for years as a session player and creative director for Ed Townsend Productions.

Rogers has worked with Esther Phillips, Shirley Scott, David Johnson (Little Caesar and the Romans), Charles Brown, Martha Reeves, The Vandellas, the West Coast Drifters, and others. He has published music under CherryTown-3TR publishing, Jobete Music, and Peer Southern International.
