Arrranger/Composer Roger True
Raised in the heartland community of Granada, Minnesota, Roger started playing piano at age 13.
"As a child, whenever there was a piano around, I would 'bang' on it. So you can imagine my excitement when Grandpa Hansen appeared at our door with an old Army upright painted avocado green!"
It wasn't long before the top-40 songs of the day were ringing throughout the True family home.
After Music studies at the University of Minnesota, Roger relocated to Nashville, Tennessee in 1985. He began performing nightly at the grand historic Hermitage Hotel. As a personal favorite of the Honorable Tennessee Governor Ned Ray McWhorter, Roger was often asked to perform at the Tennessee Executive Residence, entertaining the rich and famous, State Dignitaries, and Honored Guests.
Roger's songwriting credits include co-writer, along with Jim Larsen, of the Contemporary Christian holiday song, "He Would Be King," recorded by Lee Greenwood, Gordon Mote, and others.
"My joy is songwriting and doing my own arrangements of great songs. Hopefully, folks will enjoy hearing my music and other piano players will be challenged by my arrangements." -Roger
