Jean Rohe; Sisterly Tour; Full Band Show
Jean Rohe writes one-of-a-kind narrative songs, concerned as much with the internal world as with the external. Her latest record as a bandleader, Sisterly, produced by longtime collaborator Liam Robinson, won Best Adult Contemporary Album at the Independent Music Awards in June. Sisterly is a collection of songs about communication and missed connections, and tackles topics from love, lust, and longing to prisons, police violence, and migration.
She is perhaps best known for her much-covered 2012 video single, National Anthem: Arise! Arise! an aspirational alternative national anthem performed with choir and brass ensemble. And her award-winning 2013 release Jean Rohe & The End of the World Show was hailed by an Elmore Magazine reviewer as enchanting and remarkable in so many ways I can think of no comparison.
Jean tours regularly with Robinson & Rohe, her rootsy songwriting duo with Liam Robinson, and continues work on a performance memoir, The Odysseus Agreement, for which she's received fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, the Johnny Mercer Songwriters Project, and others. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.
