|German singer/guitarist Rodger Christmann plays soulful acoustic rock and pop with a
contemporary “New Age Classic Sound" that bears the hallmarks of Bread, Clapton and Paul Young. |
Rodger Christmann is a strong traditional style songwriter. His distinctive, passionate, and smoky vocal style reflects the influences of Tom Waits, Rod Stewart, and John Martyn. Vocals are well balanced with his bluesy, economic acoustic and electric guitar style, which instantly reminds you of Eric Clapton, Chris Rea, and Mark Knopfler. Rodger Christmann has been playing music since the late 1960s with various bands, and in the early 1990s he started his own project "Rodger Christmann" with his friend and musical partner Rick Kus.
Currently Christmann is working on his debut album, scheduled for release in late 2006. The album will include Christmann’s originally composed tunes, and will feature Rick Kus, as well as guest musicians Stefan Faust on percussion and Sebastian Teufel (Yellow Jumps Twice) on guitar and mandolin.
