ROHAN POWELL | singer, songwriter & actor
"Music shouldn't just be heard ... it should be felt through the whole of your body (but mostly with the heart)."
Rohan Powell's talent is seemingly endless with his ability to turn his hand to all things music. From his comedic routines with a guitar and a series of 'what if''s ... what if Richie Benaud was the lead singer of the Eagles?' His quick one liners and finely developed vocal musings to the serious business of singing songs that 'say something'.
His love of country crossover music has seen him pen over 200 uniquely Australian songs in his career and the first of which are about to be launched on an eager Australian audience via an independent release of his solo CD. Recent collaborations with respected artists like Bill Chambers at the Tamworth Country Music Festival and on tour in Western Australia in addition to support gigs for Kenny Rogers and Reba McIntyre highlight just where he is headed in the country music industry; to the top!
Rohan is currently enjoying songwriting success with one of his songs, 'The lovin' is the easy part', sitting in the Top 10 Australian country music charts. The song is performed by Amber Jay-Poulton. (June 2013).
Many Adelaide fans will know him from his frontline work with one of Australia's best corporate coverband outfits 'Acoustic Juice' (in conjunction with Ian 'Polly' Politis). 'Acoustic Juice' ranges from a duo through to the dynamic look and sound of the 12 piece band incorporating a string trio and a bagpiper.
Another of Rohan's working personas has seen him bring to life the Australian 'Walk the Line' show which celebrates the music of the man in black ... Johnny Cash. This act has been receiving rave reviews from country music festivals across Australia and his CD of the same name has charted well and also includes two new original songs performed in a Johnny Cash style. Copies of this CD may be purchased by contacting InFront Management on 08 8362 9844.
Recently he and Acoustic Juice have also developed an 'Eagles' show called ' The Long Run' that premiered at the Bundaleer Festival in South Australia. This collaboration has been a work in progress over a number of years to fine tune the vocal harmonies of the Eagles and keep their music alive. This show is now available as a dinner & show or 45 minute showcase format through InFront Entertainment.
