Bio


Billie Rogers is an up and coming Perth based singer/songwriter who has been blowing audiences away with her angelic voice and her swag of beautiful, self penned songs. Being the daughter of well-known W.A. musician Bill Rogers, who has played with such Australian music royalty as Cold Chisel and Dragon, Billie has enjoyed a childhood exposed to an eclectic mix of blues, country, reggae, soul an...d rock. It is little wonder then that Billie decided to arm herself with guitar, harmonica and pen, and create her own unique songs. She has since developed her own brand of soulful country music which has been likened to that of Norah Jones or Emmy-Lou Harris. Her solid musical education clearly shows in the choice of covers she mixes into her set list, from artists such as Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Nina Simone.

2010 saw her play a number of well attended gigs at respected music venue Clancy's Fremantle, where she was accompanied by The Country Gentlemen, an all star line-up featuring some of Western Australia’s most prominent musicians. It has been a great boost for a young performer to have a backing band of drummer Murray Campbell, Grammy Award winner Lucky Oceans on pedal steel; Tom Fisher on power bass and father Bill Rogers on keyboards, sax, harmonica and backing vocals. It’s a line up worthy of a higher profile artist, yet she takes centre stage like she was born to it.

Billie has a natural stage presence and confidence in her vocal delivery that is unusual in a musician of only 25 years of age, and it compliments her original, power-country numbers. Look out for Billie Rogers as she makes her way up the musical ladder.
