Ro is a soft rock and easy listening singer from the Central California San Joaquin Valley whose lyrical tenor voice can tug at your heart strings. His songs can be described in two words… “tears & smiles”. He sings passionate love songs that will bring a tear to your eye and feel good songs that will make you smile ear to ear.

Ro was discovered by a professional vocal and performance coach who heard him perform a Partridge Family song on a karaoke machine. Crazy, huh! He was told he had natural presence and a unique voice that others would enjoy hearing. To Ro’s horror it was suggested he immediately begin performing live. No one was more surprised than Ro, who at this point had only sung in is vehicle and the shower, much less in front of people! With a heavy dose of encouragement Ro was convinced to participate in an open mic event. Having never performed in front of people, his first live performance was scary to say the least, but the audience response was very positive. Ro has been studio recording and performing live regularly ever since.
