Jean Rohe is a multi-lingual singer, storyteller, and composer, mixing aesthetic approaches from jazz, folk, and Brazilian traditions. Her one-of-a-kind narrative songs, which range from fantastical riffs on old folktales to autobiographical sojourns, to “phonojournalism”, a genre of her own invention, have won recognition from the ASCAP Foundation and the New York Songwriters Circle, and her refreshingly candid performance won her the audience prize at the Montreux Jazz Festival. “A sure-footed young singer-songwriter,” in the words of The New York Times, she has performed with the Billboard-charting alt-country group Calexico, appears regularly on New York Public Radio, and has toured her projects throughout the U.S. and as far as Havana's Teatro Nacional. As a fellow at the MacDowell Colony last year, she began work on a new group of songs for a performance memoir about her grandmother and namesake. Though she is often found at the helm of her eclectic and genre-bending 8-piece ensemble, Jean Rohe & The End of the World Show, she also performs her solo repertoire.
