About Me

Rodger Christmann is a singer/guitarist and a strong traditional style songwriter, who writes and produces his own songs. His distinctive, passionate, and smoky vocal style reflects the influences of Tom Waits, Rod Stewart, and John Martyn. Vocals are well balanced with his bluesy, economic acoustic and electric guitar style, which instantly reminds you of Eric Clapton, Chris Rea, and Mark Knopfler. Rodger Christmann has been playing music since the late 1960s with various bands, and in the early 1990s he started his own project “Rodger Christmann” with his friend and musical partner Rick Kus.
