Avoiding the notorious "sophomore slump", RO's 2016 release of 'The Lottery' stormed the iTunes R&B/Soul charts up to #8! Charting on iTunes is familiar territory for RO. His debut album 'RnBPoPWrytr', released in April 2012, reached #62 on the very same charts. He has garnered terrestrial radio play and several of his songs have been put into rotation on the Pandora music site.
He's performed with acts from Aaron Carter to O-Town and Color Me Badd to Jay-Z all while steadily building his fan base.
'The Lottery' was mixed and mastered by Grammy nominated engineer Mikaelin 'Blue' Bluespruce who's lent his talents to Akon, Solange Knowles, Prince Royce, Ghostface Killah & Ruben Studdard to name a few.
June 2018 Roger Ortega released his single WOO YEA ftTrevon Payne followed by the Music Video in July which featured his home town of Topeka, KS.
Roger will be starting off 2019 by performing for one week on Norwegian Cruise Lines from New York to Bahamas in March. He will also be releasing his next single in February 2019.
Gearing up for a busy 2019 RO says "Music is the soundtrack to our lives and we gotta tell a story." And what a story he's planning to tell.
