Bio

Jake Roggenkamp is a singer-songwriter from northwest NJ known for his unique voice and thoughtful song structure. In 2017 NPR stated, “The sound of his voice is completely unexpected — it sounds almost like Janis Joplin's: high, reedy and powerful - pulling back and letting loose in all the right places”

Previously writing for a NJ indie band, The Break Lights, Jake now writes solo and draws inspiration from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, Paul Simon and many American Jazz standards.
