ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rollo Time is gritty, power-pop. Rollo Time is adult alternative rock. Rollo Time is a group of Chicago-based music veterans that rocks in the classic power–pop tradition; that is, immediately grab the attention of the listener with power chords and irresistible hooks, make your point and move on to the next song. Rollo Time is the brainchild of singer-songwriter Jon Raleigh, who was looking for a new challenge following the demise of local trio The Time Beings in 2005.

Raleigh enlisted the help of drummer Tony Gaetto (a fellow ‘Being), Chicago bassist Matt Sharp (Electricon) and former Cereal Killers/Zoot guitarist Sean Black to piece together a debut CD, the self-titled ROLLO TIME. The songs on the first record cover a wide swath of ground within the power pop, classic rock and edgy alternative genres while clear-cutting “to the quick” with the scythe of intelligent lyrics, a positive message and twists and turns that keep listeners on their toes.

The surprisingly positive response to the songs on the first record got the band started on a follow-up project. Recording began in April 2010 at Chicago’s Gravity Studios. Producing the new album, entitled “Victims of the Crown” was Doug McBride, known for his work with other pop/alternative rock masters such as Cheap Trick, Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt, Verbow and others.

In late 2012, Matt Sharp left the band and was replaced by Andy Goesel, known for his work with Seven Day Run. Andy also played with Sean in Zoot and Cereal Killers. "We couldn't be happier with Andy's contributions to our sound", said Raleigh; "Andy brings so much to the table...his playing is phenomenal and he's a great singer to boot."

During the next several years, the new quartet performed a series of gigs including mini-tours to Liverpool, UK and Los Angeles, CA as well as an opening slot for Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Andy moved to Florida in 2017, but that didn't stop work on the third Rollo Time recording. The group released a series of singles in 2017 and 2018 including "Spider in the Hole", "New Block on the Kid" and the latest release "Rumspringa". Stay tuned for additional new single releases during the next several months as well as some select local concerts to showcase the new material. Cheers!
