Roger Styles – astounding guitarist and singer, renowned for his unique take on classic and modern pop and jazz.
Open a slippery jar of rhythmic dirtiness and mix it with a yard of astounding guitar skill, add a stroke of silky voice with an occasional rough-cut growl and you have the awesome talent of Roger Styles.
Roger has been a professional musician since his early teens, and has developed an inspiring and captivating performance. He has played at many prestigious venues all over the UK and Europe and regularly plays session guitar in the house band at Joss Stone’s music club in Exeter.
He has performed at over 200 weddings and corporate events, and is also regularly asked to play for the St Luke’s Summer Ball, creating a huge party atmosphere for over 500 lively students at Twickenham Stadium. A highlight of 2012 was playing for a party at the Monaco F1 Grand Prix.
His performance suits all venues and events from mellow instrumental to raucous celebrations. He takes popular songs and makes them his own, drawing upon all styles of music, from rock and pop, to latin, folk and gypsy jazz, to soul and funk. He also writes and performs original material, and has recently released an EP that is proving very popular among fans of Bon Iver, Radiohead and Scott Matthews.
It is rare to find a solo artist that can move a room like a full band would, using percussion and looping, and reading the atmosphere to provide exactly what the audience needs to have a brilliant time. For any event, large or small, he is definitely your man!
