ABOUT JOE ROHAN:
As a drummer, he supplied his trademark grooves performing and recording with some of the best artists and bands to come out of the Midwest United States including Mothertrain, Chris Allen (Rosavelt), Anne DeChant, Will Bowen, Robin Stone, and Mike Farley.

Finally emerging as a solo artist, Joe Rohan joins the growing number of singer/songwriters that are reviving today's popular music with a return to great songwriting.

Since the release of his debut CD "Walk Along," (June 2003) singer / songwriter Joe Rohan has developed a large audience and following that starts in northeast Ohio and reaches as far south as New Orleans, Louisiana. Joe's music combines his funk, rock and jazz drumming roots with a driving acoustic sound, a ghosty dobroguitar, heartfelt storytelling and a clear, soulful singing voice. The result is powerful Pop Rock / Americana songs packed with irresistible grooves, infectious soulful melodies and a strong, gritty finish. Rohan's contagious audience appeal is as apparent from the stage as it is in his music. In just a few short months he has opened for artists like James Taylor (August 2003), performed as a featured artist at the Cutting Edge New Music Conference in New Orleans (August 2003), and performed for live, radio and television audiences from Ohio to the Gulf Coast. His songs have been featured on MTV's "Real World vs. Road Rules and his current CD title track "Walk Along" and single "Desert Love" are currently spinning on local and regional college radio.

In February of 2004, Joe was voted American Roots Artist of the year at the 2004 Cleveland Free Times Music Awards.

Need a comparison? Just listen and you'll hear multiple influences of Dave Matthews, John Hiatt, Tom Petty, Nickel Creek, John Mayer and a splash of Jimi Hendrix. In the end, it's just powerful music that takes you on a great ride!

Minor 7th Webzine


Clevelander Joe Rohan shakes off the grit from that rough-edged Ohio torn with a smooth country-based debut, "Walk Along." The well-traveled drummer takes easily to the spotlight, adding lead vocals, acoustic guitar and dobro to his stix licks. He teams with Tom Prebish (bass), Dan Rose (guitar), Bill Lestock (guitar), Austin Charanghat (guitar) and Tim Longfellow (piano) on this 11-track effort. Vicki Chew and Jen Podulka provide backing vocals. Rohan shows off a fine country tenor as he croons through seven of his own compositions. Though some songs approach country pop, his lyrical approach is more folk-oriented than rock, with tales of love lost, love missed, wistful regrets and cautious hope. He also covers Rickie Lee Jones' "The Horses," a bit of a stretch, with, not surprisingly, mixed results. Still, Rohan displays a knack for crafting a pleasant-enough country song, and ably presenting it. Clearly, he has a lot of stories to share -- though one hopes some shadings of that Cleveland edginess will manifest itself in subsequent efforts.

Score! Music Magazine

a stand out folk rock album
Joe Rohan is a Cleveland-based singer/songwriter whose music combines an almost country swing vibe with a folk rock sensibility. The ten tracks on this CD spotlight Rohan’s throaty vocal delivery and his abilities as a songwriter. While his music is fairly derivative, it is his vocal inflection and his obvious passion that make this a stand out folk rock album. This is by far the best effort by a Cleveland-based singer/songwriter that I’ve heard since Alex Bevan's heyday. Whatever happened to him, anyway?

The sincere, poetic lyrics and rhythmic melodies of Walk Along has made it a permanent fixture in my car CD player for the past 100 miles. Every listen gives one a deeper personal connection to the lyrics and a stronger appreciation for Joe's musical genius. I can't wait for the next CD, and if you listen to Walk Along, I know you'll feel the same.

Excellent
Another new star on the Americana scene. Lovely dobro work. Great version of Rickie Lee Jones- Horses. Not a bad track on the whole cd. Harmonies on some tracks resemble CSN. All in all an excellent solo debut. Can't wait for the next.
