    Robinson & Rohe is the duo of Brooklyn songwriters Liam Robinson (banjo, accordion, vocals) & Jean Rohe (guitar, vocals).

    After a touring hiatus this past year, during which Liam music directed the smash hit Broadway musical, Hadestown, and Jean released Sisterly, an award-winning record of her own, Robinson & Rohe anticipate the release of Wait & See in late 2020. This record builds on the keen-eyed writing and impeccable duo singing of their debut record, Hunger.

    "Zoe Boekbinder opens [their] mouth, and the voice that comes out is ageless, beautiful, heartbreaking and wise. Zoe looks so young, and so innocent. I think [they] kidnapped a marvellous singer from long ago Paris, and stole her voice. It's the only explanation." - Neil Gaiman.               

    “I took a break from touring because I felt unsure that it was what I should be doing. I didn't make an album for four years. I barely played any shows. I'd been a full-time musician for my entire adult life - so this was a big deal for me. After working in prison, I started to doubt that the songs I wrote were important to the world. During this break I discovered a bravery, that I hadn't had before, to write songs about issues outside of myself. I wrote about feminism/violence against women, privilege, and prison abolition. I wrote about my best friend who committed suicide. My songs started to feel important. This album is the least and most personal art I've ever made. It feels terrifyingly vulnerable.”  Zoe resides in New Orleans, Louisiana. Some of their favorite collaborators over the years have been; Ani DiFranco, Amanda Palmer, Jason Webley, Neil Gaiman, Mal Blum, and Mirah.

    Robbie Pollock is a singer/songwriter raised in East New York, Brooklyn, and South Jamaica, Queens. After almost a decade in prison, Robbie is now a teaching artist with Carnegie Hall's Musical Connections reentry program, a board member of Musicambia, an organization that teaches music in prisons around the country, and the producer of an annual anthology of award winning writing from prison with PEN America. Since returning home in 2016, Robbie has performed at Carnegie Hall twice, Global Citizen, community performances, and numerous fundraising events for arts programming in prisons.
