Garnet Rogers

Red House Records is excited to announce the release of a new album by one of the folk world's most beloved hidden treasures, Garnet Rogers. The album, all that is: The Songs of Garnet Rogers, is the first and definitive collection of songs selected from a critically acclaimed body of work that has had only limited US distribution. Garnet notes, having a career in folk music is like being in the witness protection program. People know you're out there but they just can't quite find you. This compilation is an attempt to rectify that situation by presenting some gems from Garnet's discography, albums difficult to find outside of his native Canada.

A singer-songwriter with a style and vision all his own, Garnet is a formidable instrumentalist and highly literate balladeer with a powerful baritone voice. These qualities fuel the new album's poetic songs, illuminating the power of nature and the victories and struggles of ordinary people. The tracks contained on All that is are full of passion and purpose, resulting in a work that exposes the ills of human nature while offering a hopeful and healing message that celebrates the power of love and life. Rogers has been the featured performer on numerous television and radio programs, including Much Music, Mountain Stage, and All Things Considered. He has been a headliner at concert venues and festivals such as Wolf Trap, Lincoln Center, and Art Park, sharing the stage with performers such as Mary Chapin Carpenter, Billy Bragg, Bill Monroe, Ferron, Greg Brown and Guy Clark. Though Garnet has enjoyed much popularity over the years, he remains resolutely independent, turning down offers from major labels to ensure that he continues doing music his own way
