Kris Rodgers & The Dirty Gems
Known as "rock n' roll's secret weapon", Kris 'Fingers' Rodgers has been a recording & touring sideman in top touring garage rock and power pop acts like The Connection, Scott Sorry, The New Trocaderos, Bullet Proof Lovers, and Kurt Baker Band for years. Kris Rodgers started The Dirty Gems in 2011 as a throwback piano rock n' roll trio. The trio quickly formed into a full rock outfit in 2014, resulting in their first single, "Headlines" being featured by Little Steven Van Zandt as "Coolest Song in the World" on Steven's Sirius/XM radio station "The Underground Garage".
2017 is the year that Kris Rodgers takes center stage on his solo, full length debut, “Losing the Frequency”. Joining the Dirty Gems and returning the favor on this release, is crowned prince of Power Pop, Kurt Baker, taking over bass duties. Stand out, sing-a-long tracks, reminiscent of Elton John’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and Billy Joel’s “Glass Houses” include, “Revolution”, “I Know”, and “Rock ’n Roll Radio”. Hitting you smack dab in the face, like Todd Rudgren’s revved up motorcycle on Meat Loaf’s opening moments of “Bat Out Of Hell” is the album’s opening track, “Let Go”. Kris Rodgers has delivered an album of 70’s inspired arena rock gems, bashing piano keys with a raspy-throated growl that transcends to FM Radio Album Oriented Rock’s heyday.
