quote from Roger Sellers bio

The artistic style of Roger Sellers is widely accessible. Imagine folk-dance-americana-electric-symphonic fusion, where Philip Glass, Sufjan Stevens, and Joanna Newsom all groove to late night ambient house music in George Martin’s living room.

Roger Sellers paints vivid aural landscapes where his multiple-layered instrumentation pierces through the terrain like musicological formations, as they compile higher and higher. Compelled by the splendor projected, you, the listener climbs to the top of Roger’s finely crafted mountain, where you are met by the enlightened composer. Just as you catch your breath, Roger takes your hand and shows you his panoramic view; at that moment you absorb the deepest beauty that inherently waits within Roger Sellers’ profound concept.

Instruments are easy in his hands, and he literally plays them all. Guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, bells, organ, piano, drums. From one-man acts, to a full band, Roger Sellers’ live performances sweep his audiences clean from external focus- until the attention is solely paid to him. Similarly, in the studio, Sellers plays the engineer, producer, director, composer, and lyricist.

With three self-produced albums of professional quality under his belt at the young age of 25, Roger Sellers’ songs attest to the erudition of his musical training and confidence as a master of recording. The newest release, “Primitives”, was released on September 30th, 2014 under Punctum Records. As well as recording, Sellers has also mastered the art of live performance, touring the US and playing at festivals like SXSW, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Psych Fest, and Utopia Fest.
