Hello everyone! After 14 months of hard “work” and diligent fun, Bee Love is finished and will be distributed online and in CD/album format on August 8th! I am so excited! I think this album is just wonderful and I think you will too! I arranged the songs in the order of one’s life and in fact my life from birth to my Spiritual Awakening. Life for me began with joy and innocence at birth and moved into the the hopes and dreams of a youth. It matured with marriage and the love of my children as a young mother. Life later became somewhat murky as unresolved wounds surfaced and slowly grew into darkness as time went on. With the cooling off of the ego and the beginnings of true empathy for others I reemerged at the other end here in Mount Shasta living in a state of Gratitude and LOVE. Why the title of BEE Love? Bees are essential to my singing voice and I use their bee pollen as medicine every day to keep my voice clear and healthy. Bees are so beautiful! I will let you decide what songs feel like to you. The CD begins and ends with joy and hope. I will be doing a CD release show here in Mount Shasta and Sacramento where I spent many years singing and performing, writing and recording. Once again I have had the joy of working with David Houston (Club Nouveau, Toni Tony Tone) at Moon Studios in Sacramento and also collaborated with my good friend and musical partner Fred Nelson Jr. drummer extraordinaire, (Oleander) percussionist, bass player and arranger. I will spend this year and next year promoting BEE LOVE doing radio and TV interviews and performing all over the country! Soon we will begin work on his project with David of his songs with Fred singing and playing acoustic guitar on an EP to be released in 2023. Let us BEE LOVE to each other in these trying times and God Bless!

Bee Love is a labor of LOVE that we have been working on since last May recording in Sacramento, California at Moon Studios with the legendary recording engineer and arranger David Houston. This album is unlike the other two in that it has a LOT of instrumentation on it–Acoustic and Electric guitar (Sacramento acclaimed guitarist Steve McLane), Drums, Percussion and Bass (Fred Nelson Jr. Oleander fame) ,Cello (Allison), Strings, Saxophone, Harmonies (Laura McClane) and more! Fred Nelson Jr, my drummer for the last 7 years and musical partner and soulmate artfully arranged all of the songs along with David Houston. Every song is ALIVE and SENTIMENTAL, TOE TAPPING AND BODY MOVING! It is PROGRESSIVE FOLK MUSIC/SOULFUL FOLK/ADULT CONTEMPORARY. A few of the tracks are simply folk music and others are rock or jazz based. BEE LOVE is the title track as I have learned since moving to Mount Shasta in 2020 that to BEE LOVE is to live in FREEDOM, JOY AND GRATITUDE. These are trying and still beautiful times of amazing change and we MUST LOVE EACH OTHER! I am so excited to release this album this Spring of 2022 on VINYL, CD AND OVER 150 DIGITAL MEDIA PLATFORMS, You Tube and more! Also available is the BEE LOVE MERCHANDISE and Bee Love and Place Called Humanity and The River CDs on my website and at shows. I will have an upcoming series of ALBUM RELEASE CONCERTS at venues that allows all persons whether vaccinated or unvaccinated to attend with or without masks. This is my third album and certainly not the last! We will keep recording at least once a month with David Houston until another album is completed. My focus is songs that are about LOVE AND HEALING AND LAUGHTER! Now that I have all the free time in the world to write and make music, that is what i intend to do! My family comes first and then the music. Thank you to James Israel for maintaining this site. Thanks for listening!! Blessed Be! Today is my birthday too! Yay!
Music is Life! Love and Light! Jenn

It is nice to be acknowledged by the music industry folks in Sacramento and it is nice for Sacramento News and Review magazine to create these awards and host a concert each year. If you would like to vote for me for best Singer-Songwriter you can go to this link: https://go.newsreview.com/sammies/ Here is the song that I attached. You can listen to it here. I chose this song because of the beautiful harmonies of Sandra Delores, and the beautiful instrumentation by Mike Farrell on electric guitar and bass and Eric Everett on drums. I love Mount Shasta and I hope by featuring this song it will inspire you to go visit Her. Again, it is nice to just be nominated and to those who did, thank you!! And thank you to all who support my music by coming to the shows, or buying CD’s and going to our wonderful venues in Sacramento. I am venturing out this year to play more of California and have a third CD/Album in the works that I hope to have out in stores, online and at shows by June.
Jenn Rogar, the water goddess, performs songs about mother earth, sacred water,
the joys and follies of earthlings, the goddess, as well as, traditional and contemportary folk songs. Jenn Rogar is an activist folk singer/songwriter in the tradition of Joan Baez and Woody Guthrie singing songs about social justice issues and yet she blazes a new trail in singing original songs about the living mother earth and her sacred waters, the goddess and all her sacred beings as well as the joys and follies of earthlings! Jenn’s voice is described as “soothing” “ethereal” and having “a naturalness”. Jenn’s love of nature and freedom grew as a young girl riding her horse , Missy, everyday through the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and inspired her to sing for the purpose of inspiring others to care about the earth and her creatures. One day in 2008 Jenn chose music over her horse ,Epona , so she could devote all her time and resources to singing and recording. Jenn sings whenever and wherever people will listen. For more go to her website at www.jennrogar.com. Two CD’s are available via i-tunes and her website and a third CD “Gratitude” will be available in the Spring of 2018.
