Live in Texas Presents: Roger Creager

 

 

Roger aspired to become a country music singer since he was six years old. He started learning how to play piano in the second grade, but didn't learn guitar until he was a student at Tuloso-Midway High School. He was always found singing to himself during his early years, since he was shy around others. After high school, Roger attended Sam Houston State University and earned a degree in business. Roger went on to Texas A&M University in College Station to earn a degree in agriculture. In College Station, the Texas Music Revolution helped Roger become a successful musician. Since the release of his first album in 1998, Roger has become a fixture on the Texas Music scene, becoming known for his high energy performances and cult following. Roger and his band invite fans every summer to travel with them to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. In August 2006 Roger traveled to Africa and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. Back home, the band continued to tour without Roger under the name The Kilimanjaros. In the summer of 2007 Roger traveled to France to take part in the Festival Country Rendez-Vous. Roger currently lives in Katy, Texas. Roger Creager is an adventurist; he does not like to sit still while the world passes by. Whether it’s climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, jumping off his boat to snorkel with wild dolphins, snow skiing in the Rockies, catching tuna 100 miles from shore, piloting his airplane to far-off concerts, spear-fishing around oil rigs, scuba diving coral reefs, surfing in Costa Rica, or playing music through the Italian countryside, he tries to get the most out of what the world has to offer. All of this finds its way into Roger’s music and live shows. His passion for life invigorates everyone around him including his fan base. Those who get hooked on his charisma and high energy come back show after show, year after year, and record after record. Creager’s newest record may be his best work yet. “Surrender”, released Jan 2012, was produced by Lloyd Maines and marks a “back-to-basics” approach for Roger. As always, Roger creates an interesting collection with songs that are very different from each other and will keep the listener’s attention start to finish. He co-wrote all songs except “Redemption Song”, a Bob Marley classic. Roger is very fortunate that his music career allows him this lifestyle. But he gives it back by putting his life experiences and his infectious high energy and zeal for adventure right back into his songwriting and performances. Creager may travel the world, but he never strays far from his small-town South Texas roots and his music encompasses all of him.
