Roland J. Bowman is a classically trained X Navy Band guitarist and pianist with a Performance Degree. He is 53 and has since 1994 focused on writing and recording. His 1996 first CD, Rollin' is 11 songs of life's joys and sorrows. After touring with the Navy in the late 70's as a lead guitarist in the midwest, he went on to get a piano performance degree, and was deeply influenced by Beethoven's 32 piano sonates and pianist Claudio Arrau. After studies at Northeastern University in Chicago in the early 80's, he went on to get a piano performance degree. Then after years of CW, and RR band's in Chicago, he relocated to his home in Mathews Va.,and began serious composing in the mid 90's. The CD Rollin' is a very inspired collection of songs and is a very eclectic mix, yet not at all random. The fabric of this music is woven in a bitter-sweet blend, which is transparent and alive, yet sublime and truly inspiring. Spontaneous, clear, and captivating from beggining to end. It gets better every time you hear it. CREDITS: rollin' was Roland J. Bowman's first full length album it was recorded and mastered at Master traxx Productions in august and September of 1996.
