This consortium of gospel music envisions a special connection with a higher power that helps the masses deal with the everyday ups and downs in life.
St. Thomas, VI — Agené Rogers is a new up-and-coming artist who creates music that syncs with the hearts and minds of the masses. This is because this music is soulful and deep in a way that induces self-reflection as well as self-love in the minds of listeners. Agené has spent much time trying to derive meaning from his life and in doing so now feels that everyone should do the same. For him, meaning is the only way through which one can make sense of the mess that life throws at us.
The eclectic artist has been guided by one sole quote that encapsulates the starting point of his musical passion: “Without music, life would be a mistake”. This simple sentence helps relay the full force of the power of music in creating connections that cross space and time in shocking ways. Agené’s goal is to eventually have several original songs well-known throughout the world and in the gospel/Christian center. In this way, the singer wishes to give back to a musical genre that has always been a safe and homely place to his as to many others.
Agené’s songwriting process is pretty fun and spontaneous. At random moments throughout the day, a certain line or tune would come to his mind and he’d quickly write it down or record it so that he’d remember it for later. From here on, the songwriter builds on that one or two lines even before the track has been made. Thus, musical melodies and lyrical depth just come to him the moment he sits down to write down his song. Usually, once he sits down to work on something that he made up a part of earlier, it’ll only take him about 15 minutes before he has an entire song done.
The rising star has released three immensely moving singles which include “I Will Go”, “Promise”, and “I’m Here” all of which bring a sense of support and love to a world mired with sorrow. Agené’ ultimate goal is to successfully juggle his musical career with both his work in the veterinary field and his obligations as a father.

Passionately performed and lovingly written, Agené Rogers’s captivating Gospel track “Promise” is sure to reach many a listener’s hearts with its deeply soulful tones and tranquil melodic sensibilities. Opening with a tender unison melody shared by both the piano and guitar, it quickly becomes evident that “Promise” will be a listening experience of a particularly uplifting and relaxed nature, and by the time the soothing vocals enter, it also becomes apparent that “Promise” is a track that is built upon both a profound sense of meaning and purpose. Combining wonderfully calming vocal harmonies, delicate percussive elements, gracious performances, and melodically vibrant piano and guitar lines, “Promise” is a worthwhile musical experience that places its listeners in a welcome state of serenity and hope.
Agené is clearly a gifted performer and you really do feel his heart in each and every delicately word he conveys, and as with any Gospel-inspired piece of songwriting, this is paramount in helping to ensure listeners form a strong bond with the track and perhaps even more importantly, the message that it holds at its center. I particularly like the interplay between the lead and backing vocals, it helps to both create some great momentum to the lyrics and highlight key moments in the lyrics themselves, strengthening their effectiveness as well as creating some thoroughly warm textural layering.
