tremolo fields

Tremolo Fields is the indie-rock, alt-folk, diy-electronic project of David Rogers. Born and raised in Iowa, Rogers now lives in Maine where he recently released still as can be—Tremolo Fields's debut album that The Portland Press Herald called “a transfixing assemblage of 10 tracks.”

The album was recorded in Minneapolis and a bygone/defunct church in Iowa by producer and audio engineer Brett Bullion (Bad Bad Hats, Low, The Bad Plus). During a two-week studio session, Bullion, along with multi-instrumentalist Con Davison (Bad Bad Hats) helped Rogers expand the sonic possibilities of his lo-fi basement recordings. The result, according to Various Small Flames, “combines folk sensibilities with rock and electronic styles to weave its evocative sounds.”

As a visual artist and designer, Rogers has long been intrigued by the interplay of precision and intuition in digital production and human mark-making. This same thread he pulls now during his live performances as a solo musician by incorporating digital tools while playing guitar and singing. It's within this context that he conjures memories of Iowa and places far beyond, and in doing so explores themes of love, loss, holding on, and letting go.
