Bill Rogers

Fort Myers, Florida, USA

A Great Hobby:
I've been fiddling with songs and song ideas for quite some time. I have a simple home studio, a few guitars, cheap amps, a keyboard (with drum sounds), basic mics, mixer and laptop. It is a great creative outlet that keeps me humming along. Just now getting around to sharing some of my material. Hope you like it:)

Process:
I always start out recording guitar first. Then I layer in the other instruments. Lyrics come last in my world. They are the hardest part of the whole deal. A whole song might take a day to compose and record. Maybe two. I like to leave a few flaws in the recordings (that I could have fixed) to keep it real. I realize I'm not the greatest singer but I'm free and always available when it is time to record some vocals.

Project:
The first 14 songs here are from a collection I'm calling "Perspective."
I did most of them in 2019 but a couple go back a bit further. Interesting how perspective shifts over time.

Contributors:
Mike Carrington played a cool mandolin on track 3, Be Like You.
Bill Schreiber added the piano sparkle on track 14, Till We Meet Again.
