Jack Ladder is the professional alias of Australian singer-songwriter and composer Tim Rogers. His music is characterised by his poignant observations on love and death, often featuring gallows humour.

Sydney native Jack Ladder has a vast repertoire anchored by his distinctive baritone voice and wry melancholic delivery.

Since his debut Not Worth Waiting For in 2005 which was largely acoustic, he has journeyed his sound toward moody and cinematic, dark indie pop following the introduction of his band the Dreamlanders (Kirin J. Callinan, Donny Benét and Laurence Pike) in 2011. Jack Ladder has toured in Australia and internationally to much acclaim. He has been short-listed for the Australian Music Prize.
