Roger L. is a guitarist/composer based in Brooklyn, New York. Shortly

after arriving on the NY scene in 2019, he released his debut

album “Whisper of the Isolated Ones”, featuring Phil Grenadier on

trumpet, Ryosuke Tsutsui on piano, Soso Gelovani on bass, and Nick

Groat on drums. The release was soon recognized by his homeland

Taiwan and was nominated for The Best Jazz Album and The Best Jazz

Composition for the 12th Golden Indie Music Award, the highest award

for jazz category in the country.

Born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan, Roger began his musical journey at the

age of 5 when he started playing piano. Being heavily drawn to harmonic

instruments, he got deeply interested in the guitar at 14, where he could

explore and express harmonies he learned on the piano with different

textures. 10 years later, his co-led jazz band won 2nd prize of the New

Talent Competition affiliated to Taichung Jazz Festival in 2014, the

largest jazz festival held annually in Taiwan. In 2019, Roger finished his

music education with a scholarship from Berklee College of Music in

Boston, where studied with jazz giants such as Mick Goodrick, George

Garzone, Ian Froman and many others.

Roger has been actively performing and recording as a leader and

sideman in U.S and Asia. He has toured in the U.S, Japan, and Taiwan

with different groups. His projects can be seen mostly in Brooklyn and

Harlem’s local clubs.
