"The Consummate Musician"
His impeccable ear, fine artistry, and attention to detail are invaluable assets to any project. Roger has a rare combination of dynamic creativity, artistic integrity, and personal humility**, which together guarantee that the music always comes first.
Rich colour and quirky humour flow naturally out of the breadth and depth of his professional and personal experience.
Native of Norwich, on the East coast of the UK, Roger began studying piano at the age of six. By age 16 he was playing and directing professionally, and has not looked back since.
Whether composing, directing, performing or producing, Roger achieves results and a convivial atmosphere.
** (No, really…he didn't write this himself)
Roger recently completed an 11-year international tour as MD/Keyboard 1 with Cirque du Soleil's 'Corteo', for which he also composed some of the show's original music.
Between weeks of performances, he enjoyed heading into local studios to record original material using musicians from the region.
Roger has settled in the warm, welcoming community of southwestern Ontario, Canada, and will be performing several special entertaining concerts with Kari Lynn Hewett. Check back to this site for more details and dates.
As for 2018, Roger will be returning to Cirque du Soleil with a revamped version of Corteo, destined for arenas worldwide.
