NEXT Gay Mega Star

Roger Kuhn Wins NEXT Gay Mega Star CompetitionSinger-songwriter Roger Kuhn may not be a household name; not yet anyway. But after winning the first NEXT Gay Mega Star competition this past weekend in New York, he’s well on his way to breaking into the big time. Kuhn’s musical style is undefinable but unforgettable; a blend of folk-country-alternative with a soaring vocal range uniquely his own. Without a doubt, he defies easy stereotyping—a gifted gay artist of Creek/German heritage from North Dakota who calls New York City his home.

With representatives of “Music With a Twist,” Sirius Satellite Radio and Ultra Records serving as judges, Kuhn blew them away with an acoustic rendition of his song “What’s Your Name” followed by an a capella performance. By Sunday, he had moved into the final round of competition where he was named NEXT Gay Mega Star.

Wow, writerfella has seen this dude on MySpace, and even has streamed video of some of his performances onto his computer! BUT NONE OF THAT EVER HAS IDENTIFIED HIM AS NATIVE! Great Caesar's ghost! Great voice, good songs, even the ones that were a capella and acoustic. Hell, for writerfella's own reasons, he doted on the videos where the dude performed barefoot! What's the 888-number? How do you vote for him? Tell me! Aaiiieee!
All Best
