Bess Rogers
"What We Want"
Playing at: Rockwood Music Hall (196 Allen St., L.E.S.)
Info: Tickets ($8) | Directions

Words like "light" and "breezy" coupled with "lilting" and "hooky" best describe the Bess Rogers track “What We Want.” The Brooklyn-based singer songwriter’s lyrics float along above her prancing guitar, ukulele ditties and bass beats. But that’s not the only narrative style Rogers serves up for her audiences. “Mostly I write songs that are upbeat, energetic or even aggressive,” she says. “I like people to be able to dance and even headbang to my music.” For a taste of the latter, check out this video for her rollicking “Favorite Day.” Both tracks are available on Rogers' recently released EP, Bess Rogers Presents Bess Rogers.
