Blind Pig Signs Robin Rogers

Blind Pig Records has announced the signing of singer Robin Rogers. Music has been a consuming passion of the Charlotte, North Carolina, vocalist ever since her days as a teenage street singer. Possessing a deeply expressive and soulful voice and an infectious enthusiasm for the Blues, Rogers and her band have developed a devoted and growing following.

They were finalists in the Blues Foundation's 2004 International Blues Challenge and the following year won the Foundation's "Best Produced CD" award for Rogers' sophomore release, Crazy Cryin' Blues. Rogers, who also plays a mean Blues harmonica, has opened for the likes of Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy, and Robert Cray.

Rogers' Blind Pig debut, entitled Treat Me Right, features perhaps her most powerful composition, "Color-Blind Angel," a moving account of the life and death of white Civil Rights worker Viola Liuzzo, who was assassinated by the KKK in 1965. "Color-Blind Angel" took second place in the Blues category of the 2007 International Songwriters Competition.

"We're very grateful to Blind Pig for giving our music a new home," said Rogers. "Having admired this legendary label for years, it's a dream come true to be included in their roster of creative and talented artists. We're excited about all the promise this partnership holds."
