ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Welcome to D. Rogers Country

Welcome to the mind of musician/producer D. Rogers. His third album, “Sparks On The Tarmac”, covers themes of travel, change, developments, construction, destruction, escape, and taking stock.

In the tradition of Josh Pyke, Bright Eyes, and also Guided By Voices, on “Sparks On The Tarmac”, D. Rogers allows the song to take precedence over production, without sacrificing fidelity.

Melbourne singer songwriter D. Rogers started out playing in bands around in the late nineties/early 00s. D. Rogers played bass, then guitar and keys in widely succesful band Klinger. But D. Rogers headed off to Japan in 2003, and while there proceeded to record 2 solo albums completely (all instruments) on his own. “The 14th Turn” was released in 2004, and “Neath The Dark of Fuses Blown”, was released in 2006. Both independently. “Fuses Blown” received many accolades from many critics and was supported by a national tour. D. Rogers supported Angie Hart, Skipping Girl Vinegar, Sophie Koh and many more.

To record his third album “Sparks On The Tarmac”, in 2008, D. Rogers teamed up with drummer Dave Kleynjans and Emma Heeney and a collection of friends from both sides of the river: Fi Claus, Adrian Whitehead, Tim Reid, and Ben Birchall.

Peter Farnan (Boom Crash Opera) was roused from a lucid dream to straighten the tie, gel the hair and apply spit to the face of the album that became known as “Sparks On The Tarmac”.

From the character study of “Poison Pen” to the country love song, “Away From The Microphones”, D. Rogers draws you in with a hook, a familiar lyric and his unconventional style.

“To England” and “When It's Done, It's Done” explore the themes of travel, leaving friends behind(to follow new ones).

It's not rock, it's not folk, and it's not country. Listening to “Sparks On The Tarmac” you're in D. Rogers Country.

Please have your passport ready.
