Biography

Although Tammy Rogers was born in Tennessee in 1966, she was raised in Irving, Texas.[1] A graduate of Southern Methodist University, she joined Patty Loveless' backing band after graduation, then moved on to back Trisha Yearwood.[2]

Rogers, in the mid-1990s, then began working as a session musician, working with artists such as Kieran Kane (formerly of The O'Kanes). Kane and Rogers, along with Harry Stinson and Kevin Welch, founded Dead Reckoning Records in 1995.[3] Her first album, In the Red, was released that year, followed by a self-titled album in 1996 and Speed of Love in 1999. She and Dean Miller co-wrote Terri Clark's 2000 single "A Little Gasoline".[2] In 2008, she joined the bluegrass band The SteelDrivers.

Musical styles and critical reception

Rogers' debut album received a four-star review from Allmusic critic Richard Foss, who said that it showed country and bluegrass influences with "delightful twists".[4] Her self-titled second album was also met with favorable reviews. Country Standard Time critic Norm Rosenfield also described Tammy Rogers favorably, with his review noting the multiple guest musicians and prominent bluegrass influence.[5] Tony Scherman of Entertainment Weekly gave the album a B+ rating, saying that Rogers sounded like a "less-ethereal Alison Krauss".[6] Country Standard Time critic Dan Williams also compared Rogers to Krauss in his review of The Speed of Love, saying that she sounded like Krauss' "less tradition-bound older sister", and that her "achingly sweet soprano" made even the weaker tracks "consistently listenable".[7]
