Rogue Johnsen has performed and studied with an incredible array of notable musicians – Chuck Israel, Tony Nalker, and Ron Thompson - whose roots dig deep into the history of rock n’ roll and blues. Also, Rogue holds the rare distinction of being the only student of the great Charles Brown.

He has toured extensively with W.C. Clark, Archie Bell & the Drells, and Miss Lavelle White, and played sideman for such legends as Bo Diddley, Johnny Adams, Norton Buffalo, Larry “Arkansas” Davis, Sam Andrew and Will Scarlet.

He has opened for B.B. King, Albert King, Earl King, Buddy Guy, Bobby Bland, James Cotton, Maceo Parker, Luther Allison, Dave Mason, Koko Taylor, Robben Ford, A. C. Reed, Syl Johnson, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and The Gospel Hummingbirds.

These artists have influenced Johnsen’s own uniquely crafted lyrics, sound and style to make way for a brilliant rendering of blues and rock.
