Andrew Rohlk, born and raised in Richmond, VA, has sung, danced, and played music from a young age with various levels of clothing on.  Things really got moving and grooving when he picked up the guitar at 13 and began writing songs soon after.  Andrew Rohlk’s style of Jazzy, R&B Pop songs are vignettes from his life detailing love, loss, worries, wishes, and wisdom.  These songs work best in a live setting with a healthy dose of audience interaction, and it is his hope that this exchange will help bridge the gap between the audience and the stage.

Andrew Rohlk has shared the stage with artists like Ingrid Michaelson, Butch Walker, and Joe Robinson. Andrew has played at venues like The National in Richmond and Washington DC’s U Street Music Hall as well as stranger places online like YouNow.com and ChatRoulette.com. No matter where and with whom he’s playing, Andrew hopes to leave the audience with a sense of joy; similar to the joy he felt when he first fell in love with music while dancing to Michael Jackson in his underwear like Tom Cruise in Risky Business.
