Hi, I'm Andy Rogers. I've loved music all my life. In the 60s it was The Beatles, The Moody Blues and The Move. In the 70s I loved the albums by Mike Oldfield, Focus, ELP, Nick Drake and Clifford T Ward. In 1987 I saw an advert in a paper from New World Music for something called “New Age Music”. It sounded interesting so I bought a cassette on mail order and I was hooked instantly... over the years I’ve discovered so many fantastic artists I had never heard of before then.
I’d always played and composed my own music but never considered it was worth sharing until 2014 when, just for fun, I played my version of “In the bleak Midwinter” on my OWMR show Solitudes… it got an unbelievable response and I was persuaded to record and release more of my own music, so at the age of 58 I decided it was time to follow a dream and see if anyone would buy it if I released it – To my surprise they did!!
For the last six years I’ve had two shows on One World Music Radio: Solitudes (New age music) and One World One Voice (world music), plus Rock shows etc. I’ve been lucky enough to have my last three albums released on Medwyn Goodall’s Label MG Music and I also have some singles and older albums available on Bandcamp,
