Rocky Votolato is a folk/alt-country/indie artist out of Seattle, Washington. He appears on stage solo and with a backing band and is great to hear in either scenario. On this occasion, he performed both ways and we have been told that this is common. His song lyrics are great story telling and through such amazing writing and performance has been able to attract musicians from bands such as Red Stars Theory, Sharks Keep Moving, The Blood Brothers, Death Cab for Cutie, Pedro the Lion and Rosie Thomas to guest on his studio albums. Beginning in 1999, Votolato has released 11 LPs, EPs and 7″ records.

Rocky Votolato’s performance at JB’s on September 19th was an engaging affair and his skills as a musician and writer came through in each song’s delivery. Check out some video from his performance including one video in wich he describes events on their current tour – more to come on that story in a later post about Matt Pond PA.
