During his time as the guitarist for contemporary folk trio The Highway Home, Rohan was well and truly bitten by the live music bug. Since then he has been honing his skills as a solo singer-songwriter and improving his live performance. He has also (re)-formed a folk-duo with his little sister – The Troll Hunters – who are bringing high energy folk music to every venue they can!
His growing experience as a (usually) acoustic solo artist has unlocked the latent songwriter inside. New material inspired by love, betrayal and battles with both his own and others mental health issues has been working it’s way out.
Influenced by the music of a plethora of artists of varying genres, if he had to pick Rohan would name: Tom McRae, Graham Coxon, Goskino and Queens of the Stone Age as being amongst his biggest inspirations. He could quite happily extend the list considerably, however.
Rohan can often be found playing at open mic nights in Bristol – aiming for at least one a week. He also performs at live events in the local area. Although he performs most frequently as an acoustic act, Rohan has been developing a rawky one-man band electric set-up, and recently started trying to put a full band together. These experiments are helping to inspire new material and push his voice to the next level. He hopes to take it to the stage more often in the near future!
Sounds like: OK, so I’m still working on a snappy line to put here to end things with a zing, but I promise it sounds good!

When not making music (arguably most of the time) Rohan spends his days running his own woodworking business – you can have a look at his crazy and cool products, including a new line of instruments, over at Snekkeren.co.uk.
