Roger considers song writing and the ability to play instruments an important aspect of his craft. Much of Roger's songs are in keeping with the traditional reggae focus on Roots, Culture and Reality. The harmonies and lyrics of his songs are fine examples of his creativity and the versatility of reggae music, which has awarded him to write songs for Top International Artists such as Thriller U and Marcia Griffiths to name a few. In 1992 Roger started to record for Producer/Song writer Rowen Johnson of Love Injection Production.
Out of this relationship came a co-writing catalogue of original songs and rhythms. So far, Roger has released three albums, namely Undiluted released in 1993 (his debut album) which received the British Reggae Industries Best British Reggae Album Award. His second album Reflections was released in 1995 which the single More Love from that album was awarded Best British Reggae Industries Best Single. His third album Robin was released in 2001.
All three albums were released under Love Injection Production Label. As Roger's recording career grew, he found himself meeting and working with some of the best artist, producers and engineers in the industry namely: Sly and Robbie, Clive Hunt, Robbie Lyn, Fatta, Mikey "Mao" Chung, David Rowe, Dean Fraser, Collin "Bulby" York and guitarist "Guitsie", to name a few. In 2001, Roger described as having the pleasure of performing on the Tribute to Garnet Silk show held in Saint Elizabeth in Jamaica and in 2002 he toured Africa with I Jah Man Levi. In 2005 Roger also had the great honour to work on the same stage as an opening act for Beres Hammond and Marcia Griffiths.
Most of Roger's songs are original in lyrical content, profound in their reasoning and far reaching in their message. These are songs of substance, direction and of the bittersweet realities of life. In 2005, Roger went to the US for a visit which eventually led him to meeting the dynamic duo producer Lloyd Campbell (Joe Fraser Record Label) and sound engineer Jason Sterling. Mr.
Campbell gave Roger the opportunity to record his fourth album; which this album Take It Slow promises to take you on a musical journey from the beginning to the very last drop!
