About Travis Rogers

Travis_thumb

Born into a musical family with a classically trained pianist mother and a choir director/pastor father, Travis Rogers Jr. began his musical education by sitting on the piano bench with his mother as she played the classics. After beginning formal lessons at the age of eight, he became interested in the history, analysis, and form of music literature.

In his teens, Travis was introduced to the recordings of Keith Jarrett and Chick Corea and a sweet madness was born.
