There are plenty of talented artists out there, but what sets Jean Rohe apart are the suppleness of her voice, the integrity of her vision, and the grace she shows in her wide-ranging journeys across the musical landscape. John Platt, WFUV New York
A sure-footed young singer-songwriter, in the words of The New York Times, Jean Rohe writes one-of-a-kind narrative songs, concerned as much with the internal world as with the external. Her songs, which range from fantastical riffs on old folktales to autobiographical sojourns, to phonojournalism, a genre of her own invention, have won recognition from the ASCAP Foundation and the New York Songwriters Circle. She can be found fronting her large ensemble, collaborating as one half of the duo Robinson & Rohe, or playing intimate solo sets in the US and abroad. Her latest release with her band, Jean Rohe & the End of the World Show, won three Independent Music Awards in 2014. An Elmore Magazine reviewer hailed it as enchanting and remarkable in so many ways I can think of no comparison.
A true citizen artist, she gracefully approaches matters of social concern with artistry and heart. Her 2013 video release, National Anthem: Arise! Arise! is an aspirational alternative national anthem for the United States, which has now been performed by choirs and bands across the country and was published last year in the second edition of the popular songbook Rise Up Singing (Rise Again). No Depression wrote, Not only does she make astoundingly beautiful music but she is thoughtful, reflective, and courageous.
In 2016, Jean was a finalist in the Telluride Troubadour songwriting contest. She is hard at work on her performance memoir, The Odysseus Agreement, as well as two new records, one with her band and the other with Robinson & Rohe, both set for release in early 2017. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.
a unique musical voice that sounds like a love song for a world imperiled. Albany Times Union
