Coming up through the Sydney scene, performing with bands such as Distress and The Mission In Motion, has built his technique around presence and stagecraft knowing that the visual aspect of any performance is paramount to an engaging show. Through countless Australian tours with Independent Artists he found himself sharing the stage on tour with festivals such as SoundWave and Big Day Out with his idols.
This excerpt of his career saw countless recordings including 2 full length albums with The Mission In Motion (including ‘Somewhere Safe’ debuting at #1 on the ARIA charts), full length albums with Surprise Wasp and Hank Haint (UK), as well as releases from Distress, Schrodinger’s Cat, Glitter Canyon, and a swath of others. These recordings saw a myriad of shows and tours with TMIM, Distress, Glitter Canyon, Evan and The Brave, Surprise Wasp, Los Tones, The Wednesday Night, Hank Haint and Schrodinger’s Cat encompassing everything from touring festivals, international supports, to national and international headlining tours.
While Rohan’s Rock ’n’ Roll resume is extensive, his playing and technicality displays taste and theatrical sensibility, creating a transcendent and versatile player who built the latter of his career in Pop music and television performance.
This duality of rock solid technique and energetic performance subsequently afforded him the privilege of performing with some of the biggest artists in the Australia as well as the World. Taylor Swift, Havana Brown, Ella Henderson, Shannon Noll, Reece Mastin and Sarah De Bono all appear on this list among others; including performances from within pocket-sized TV studios to bulging Stadiums.
