Jackson Rohm is an American country/pop musician. He was born in Jamestown, New York, and currently lives in Lakewood, Ohio.[1]

Early life[edit]

Rohm graduated from Southwestern High School in West Ellicott, New York, in 1989.[2] He considered attending Cornell University and the University of Virginia before accepting a track scholarship to Miami University.[3] He was a member of the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity as an undergraduate.

Career[edit]

Rohm released his first full-length CD, Twisted & Misguided, in 2000. Admitting that he was not fully happy with the release, on which he was "singing [his] soft James Taylor voice," he went for a more "modern rock sound that was radio-friendly" with his second CD, 2001's Sink or Swim.[4]

In 2003, Rohm released Red Light Fever. This CD included a cover of Concrete Blonde's "Joey".[5]

Rohm released his fourth CD, Four On The Floor, in 2006. The title track was written as a tribute to a fellow musician who was killed in a motor vehicle accident.[6][7]

In 2008, Rohm released his fifth CD, Long Way From Moving On. This album represented a departure from the pop/rock feel of his first four releases and a venture into the country music genre. The album was described as "[Rohm's] best work yet," as he "[seems] most comfortable in the country music mode."[8]

Rohm has opened for acts including Edwin McCain and Sister Hazel.[9]
