Brooklynite Bess Rogers has created national recognition through her independent releases, her relentless touring, as lead guitarist and backing vocalist for Ingrid Michaelson, and most recently as the singing voice of the nationally televised Mottís For Tots advertising campaign with her song, ìWe Believe In Youî (watch at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOqAL5uhmJE). Bess has also had other compositions featured on television shows such as Switched At Birth, One Tree Hill and Pretty Little Liars.
After nearly tripling her goal for a fan-funded album through Kickstarter, Bess will release the new record, Out Of The Ocean, this fall.
The first single, ìAnchor,î is being released earlier (Tuesday, August 23) as a special ëdigital 45í with the Beatlesí classic, ìIn My Life,î as the b-side. About ìAnchorî Rogers states, ìIt's always nice when you don't have to labor over what to do on a song, and this was one of those. The song itself is pretty literal - just about having someone who grounds you and brings you back to reality.î
In recent months Bess has shared the stage with Ari Hest, Lelia Broussard, Jay Brannan, Rachel Platten, Caleb Hawley and others, and will tour this fall in support of her new album with Ian Axel and Allie Moss.
