Born in the Greater Toronto Area, Rohan was raised by a lower-class immigrant family in Ontario, Canada. Struggling to make ends meet, both parents did their best to provide the necessities of childhood life, despite their economic situation.
Ontario-based artist Rohan continues to raise the bar in the alternative Neosoul and storytelling R&B/Hip Hop, with the striking intensity and equally heart-stirring visuals of “Outta Love.”
Rohan’s passion for music was clear from a young age, exemplified when performing rap songs in front of parents & teachers at just 6 years old. After high school, he began a musical career as a producer & eventually got an internship at an incubation hub in Toronto where he refined production, engineering & writing talents.
Rohan is an artist known for throwing a wrench into the works and going against the grain of the current fashion trend in his career. His mannerisms are all his own. Rohan’s low-voiced bellow is deep, atonal, and easygoing, and its contained coolness is almost threatening. It’s a kind of rap rendition that wraps you around its low-voiced bellow soul.
In both sound and lyrics, Rohan’s voice is becoming increasingly distinct from the rest of the artist’s repertoire. In addition to being familiar and appealing, it authentically conveyed the song’s atmosphere, presented honesty, and revealed exposure. All while weaving through a series of flows that continually return to the creative and melodically captivating hook.
Influenced by the diaspora he grew up in, Rohan creates a unique international sonic palette that spans multiple genres, interpolating alternative R&B/Hip-Hop with culturally global sounds. His songwriting displays the narrative of the struggle of the first-generation millennial, dealing with & juggling the expectations of culture, family, tradition & society.
“Outta love is a stripped down cinematic r&b ballad that reflects on relationships & their effect on our emotions. Self produced & a fresh feel, it reminds us our hearts can be a cost to being so lovin”– Rohan
Rohan paints a picture of his present environment filled with women, friends, money & purpose yet feels a void in his life caused by a past partner. The song, produced by him & long-time collaborator Ilario Circosta has an array of strings, pianos & beautifully unique production that continues to build until an absolute epic end exploding into what can only be described as love. A fresh feel in today’s music scene, the song reminds us all how there can be a tremendous cost to being a free and loving person – our hearts.
