Biography

Roger started taking lessons and playing drums at the young age of seven. During his adolescence he had several engagements in big bands, ensembles and cover bands which helped him growing musically in different styles. After joining the band of exceptionally talented Swiss guitarist Michael Wespi and recording his second studio-album „Hope“, an extended tour in Switzerland and Germany followed. Shortly after he also joined Swiss singer-songwriter Daniel Kandlbauer for his fourth studio-album „Violet Sky“ and the following tour. Roger then started his career as session drummer and had the opportunity to work with several Swiss artists in the studio and/or live such as Lina Button, Lea Lu, Stefania Kaye, Andy McSean, Fabian Anderhub, Jazzlounge and Larry F to name a few. In 2015 he joined the newly found Swiss pop band Karavann, who successfully released their debut album „Desert Tunes“ in early 2016 and subsequently played countless shows all over the country. In the same year he joined the live-band of Swiss pop singer Nubya and is currently preparing for her album-release and consecutive tour in 2021.
