Indie Artist Spotlight: Roger Ortega

Roger Ortega

“Up n @em!” is Roger Ortega’s way of letting his fans on social media know he’s awake and ready to conquer another day, or maybe at this rate, he’s getting ready to conquer the world.

Roger Ortega, also known as “RO” or “RnBPoPWrytr” is from Topeka, KS.  He started his singing career at the young age of 14 years old in a group he formed called Slo Motion.  The group got a record deal that moved them from Kansas to New York. The deal ultimately fell through and Roger stayed in Hoboken, NJ.  Feeling frustrated with the industry, he quit the music business altogether.  10 years later he was given another shot and he took it.

April 2012, Roger released his album “RnBPoPWrytr” along with his singles “Drink up Freak out”, “Calling all Girls” and his fan favorite single “I Can’t Wait”. The music video reached over 100k views which was a positive feat for this independent artist. His album reached #62 on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts.  Later that year he released his Christmas Single “My First Christmas With You”.

In 2013 his fan base of “RoRos” grew largely with the Platoons Remix of “I Can’t Wait” which reached the #1 spot on the New York based, Back2dabeat countdown. His fan base spreads far and wide throughout Canada, the United States, Europe, Japan, Australia, The U.K and more.
Roger, known famously for his “#BootySlaps” on twitter, has had the opportunity to perform at many events in New York City, New Jersey, Miami, St. Louis, Kansas and most recently in Toronto, ON Canada. He recently sold out the Cutting Room in NYC for a TROUBLEMAKERS concert. He has opened for Jay Z, Color Me Badd and has shared the stage with the Funky Bunch (formerly Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch), Thiago (up and coming Latin Recording Artist), Jimmy Marsh (managed under Donnie Wahlberg), and many more.

His music is currently on rotation on Germany’s Top 100 Station, as well as on Legends of Freestyle, and numerous radio stations in France, Switzerland and the U.S. With radio and TV interviews lined up, his current single “Drink Up Freak Out ft. The Native Ones” is set to make waves this summer as he has just begun a radio campaign in the UK.

2014 no doubt will be a big year for Roger Ortega as he is set to release a second album by the end of the year.

When Roger retires for the evening, he leaves his fans with …”From Beginning to end…I Love you all! Goodnight!!” and he prepares to conquer another day.
