More about Roger Lucey:
Roger Lucey started writing and performing songs in the mid seventies in his hometown of Durban, South Africa. From those early times his songs reflected the social and political situation in the country and when he moved to Johannesburg at the end of the seventies he recorded his first album, “The Road is Much Longer.” The album was banned for possession and distribution and the security police launched a covert ‘operation’ to silence him.
Roger went on to work as a TV journalist covering the wars in Southern and East Africa and later in Madagascar, Bosnia and Chechnya. He left the news industry after more than a decade to join ‘Theater for Africa’, an environmental theater company.
He later joined etv, as editor and presenter of a nightly arts/news program for which he received the Arts and Culture Trust award. In May 2010 he graduated as valedictorian from Duke University’s Graduate Liberal Studies program. His autobiography Back In From The Anger was published in 2012 and was nominated for the Alan Paton award for non fiction. At the time his work was featured in the inaugural exhibition at the Museum of Modern Culture in Gotteburg, Sweden.
In 2016 he received a lifetime achievement award at the South African Music awards.
