Biography

(Also see ‘Norton Buffalo & Roy Rogers’ on Last.fm here: http://www.last.fm/music/+noredirect/Norton+Buffalo+&+Roy+Rogers )

Norton Buffalo and Roy Rogers, established in the San Francisco Bay Area blues scene for many years, are paired in this sizzling acoustic duo format for rare appearances. The music focuses on blues and folk styles, yet covers a diverse range of styles from hot and feisty up tempo boogies, to down and dirty blues with swampy grooves, with touching ballads performed to round out the range of textures these two fine seasoned artists can perform. They are both considered top players in the industry because of their incredible musicianship.

In 1991, Rogers and Buffalo released their debut album, ‘R&B’ on Blind Pig Records. One of the tracks from that album, Song for Jessica, penned by Rogers, received a Grammy nomination for Best Country Instrumental Performance. A video was released for another song, Ain’t No Bread in The Breadbox, penned by Buffalo, with airplay received on VH1, TNN, CMT and regional television video programs, this tune was also covered by Jerry Garcia and released on his live CD Shining Star.

In the fall of 1992 the release of ‘Travelin’’ Tracks’ (also on Blind Pig) included live tracks of the acoustic duet, as well as studio tracks. Reviewed and acclaimed from everyone from Downbeat, People, The San Francisco Examiner, and The Gavin Report, their reputation has continued to grow. Overseas, particularly in France and Australia, the duet has also received high marks and major media coverage for their recordings the U.S. and were voted ‘Best Blues Duet’ by The Australian Blues Society.
