My guest today is David Rodgers, a California native David Rodgers is one of the most exciting talents in Nashville’s jazz scene today. Currently an active member of Keb’ Mo’s band as a keyboardist, he has also recorded on numerous records including Keb’s Grammy-winning Oklahoma (2019).
David has toured and performed worldwide at the Montreux Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, and the Playboy Jazz Festival, among many others with a Bachelor of Music degree in classical and jazz piano performance from Vanderbilt University’s Blair School of Music and a Master of Music degree in commercial composition from Belmont University.
His compositions have been performed and recorded internationally, including guest appearances at the 2018 Jazz Education Network’s Young Composers Showcase where the U.S. Airmen of Note played his winning big band composition, as well as in Canada where he was invited as a guest artist to the Banff Centre’s International Workshop in Jazz & Creative Music.
In addition to being an active Korg-endorsed artist, he was also a finalist for ROLI’s first-ever International Next Awards for which he was invited to London to perform as a soloist. He has released two albums: the 2017 genre-bending, debut project Songs For A Generation which I mixed; as well as his 2019 album, Doorways which he recorded and mixed with me right here as well.
