An Aboriginal performer and entertainer of over 40 years I welcome you to my discography and trust you will enjoy listening to some of the many recordings I have made over the years.
WELCOME to my new website!
Well known by the Aboriginal Community throughout Australia, Roger Knox has been singing and performing since an early age. A devastating plane crash in his early thirties threatened to cut short his promising career. With horrendous burns to a large part of his body, Roger returned to his home community of Toomelah Aboriginal Mission Station to heal. His Auntie Hannah used singing, bush medicine and ‘the old ways’ to heal him.
A strong advocate of drug and alcohol free living, he has dedicated his life to uplifting his people’s spirit, performing regularly in jails throughout Australia Canada and the USA. Singing is a significant part of Aboriginal learning and culture and he acknowledges its importance in bringing people together for healing, self-awareness and the awakening of their heritage.
Roger uses his voice to inspire, encouraging people to feel good, further encouraging them to strive to be the best they can be. Engaged in mentoring young Aboriginal musicians and performers he is a well loved and inspiring role model.
Roger and his incredibly talented family are playing the Sydney Festival 25th January 2015 and his line up boasts his eldest son and three of his grandsons – all successful performers in their own right. He is also joined by his friend and musical legend Jon Langford from Chicago & Sydney sensation Jason Walker. Roger has just returned from Canada where he was invited to play the Vancouver and Calgary Folk Festivals. Whilst there he inspired many young First Nation performers and has plans to return in 2015.
