Show Preview - Bess Rogers - 2.28.12 - Club Cafe - Concert Preview - Pittsburgh

Bess Rogers will be appearing at Club Cafe next Tuesday, 2.28 opening for Rachel Platten. She is touring behind her latest LP, Out of the Ocean, released this previous year. Her music can be described as a variety of pop, rock and punk.The Brooklyn based artist bases her latest album on a book entitled "Your Inner Fish" by Neil Shubin. It is about evolution, reaching all the way back to the beginning, and how it has affected our lives today. Many of her songs on Out of the Ocean are inspired by this idea, from titles "In the Waves" to "Water and Dirt". The record was produced partly at her home studio and in a Maine farmhouse with the help of producer Chris Kuffner (Ingrid Michaelson's Girls and Boys).

From her press:

Like her previous releases, Bess Rogers Presents Bess Rogers (2010), Travel Back EP (2009) and Decisions Based On Information (2007), Out Of The Ocean was made and released independently. Knowing that this new record would require a more substantial budget, Rogers put out the call to her fans through Kickstarter. Within two days of launching the campaign, the initial goal of $10,000 was met; and by the end she had raised $26,000 with over 500 backers. "It was amazing." says Rogers. "The amount of support it got was mind-blowing and made me even more excited to make this record and get it out there into the world."

Songs from Out Of The Ocean have been featured by, iTunes-Japan and Google Music. Bess’ music has been featured on such television shows as One Tree Hill, Pretty Little Liars, Raising The Bar, and Switched At Birth, in a national Motts for Tots television commercial, and in the upcoming German film, Girl On A Bicycle. She has shared the stage with Ingrid Michaelson, Loudon Wainwright, Ari Hest, Ian Axel, Allie Moss, among others, and will be touring this February and March with Rachel Platten.
Show begins at 8p with doors at 7p. Tickets are only $8 and can be found here. For more information about Bess Rogers please go here:
