“Great singing and songwriting – I’m impressed”
Blues Matters Magazine
“The extremely gifted Steve Rodgers opened proceedings tonight. Seated centre stage with mostly acoustic but occasionally electric guitar we were mesmerised by the warm perfection of songs like The River and Sunshine. Steve is much more than a singer songwriter, his tunes have a greater depth…”
“Steve Rodgers was exceptional! His acoustic and electric guitar playing is inventive and rhythmic. His songwriting is thoughtful, intriguing and at times simply joyful. His voice is superb – expressive, soulful, powerful, subtle and effortlessly dynamic. His pitch and inflections impeccable…even when weaving in and out of complex cadences…”
“It takes some guts to stand in front of thousands of people with no music, no fancy lights and sing a haunting acapella with just the audience clapping in time. That is exactly what Steve Rodgers did during Cup of Light which closed his short but hugely impressive set.
Blessed with a powerful, melodic Bluesy voice, Rodgers kept the ever growing crowd transfixed throughout his set that included the Eastern flavoured Sunshine and set opener Messed Up.
Having grown up in a musical environment and with the DNA of Bad Company lead singer Paul Rodgers flowing through his veins this was one accomplished performance. His Dad may have been the headliner but make no mistake, Steve Rodgers was here on his own merits and left the stage winning over a whole new legion of fans.”
