Lou Rogai is an artist and composer. He has fronted the group Lewis & Clarke since 2003, producing a signature sound of lush, long-form songwriting. Through the process of creating orchestral arrangements for his songs, he became immersed in the instrumental aspect of story-telling. His first string quartet, Implications in D Major was released in June of 2018 and featured on WNYC’s New Sounds. It is the first in a five-movement sequence of music for chamber orchestra. He has recently scored two shorts, Essere Amato and City of Shells, and is currently at work writing, collaborating, producing, and completing a new Lewis & Clarke LP. He lives and works in Pennsylvania, USA, near a river between two mountains. 

Praise for Implications in D Major:

"Incredibly moving...a mighty suite of music"

- The Line of Best Fit

"There are moments of sustained, weighted beauty when this quartet bows out mournful, yet wholly illuminated lines both in unison and interwoven around each players timbre-rich performance.  By far one of the most beautiful pieces I've heard this year."
-Tome to the Weather Machine
