“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. 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 full band release, Jean Rohe & the End of the World Show, won three Independent Music Awards. An Elmore Magazine reviewer hailed it as “enchanting” and “remarkable in so many ways I can think of no comparison”.
“National Anthem: Arise! Arise!”, Jean’s aspirational alternative national anthem for the United States, has now been performed by choirs and artists across the country and was published last year in the second edition of the popular songbook Rise Up Singing. No Depression wrote, “Not only does she make astoundingly beautiful music but she is thoughtful, reflective, and courageous.”
Jean continues work on her performance memoir, The Odysseus Agreement, for which she has received several fellowships and development opportunities. Robinson & Rohe, her duo with songwriter Liam Robinson, released their debut record, “Hunger,” in summer 2017.
