From growing up on a dirt road in the woods of Minnesota,

to surviving as a traveling troubadour and busker in many of the major cities in the U.S., Europe and Canada; as well as working as whitewater rafting guide in the Grand Canyon, Utah and Alaska.  Tales of love, heartbreak and adventure come to fruition in this collection of songs and stories.

This was followed by the 2020 Digital WOW production of "Ancient," produced entirely during quarantine and is featured on the Broadway on Demand website. 

“Rohlf’s music is typically catchy, quirky, and lighthearted with clever and funny lyrics; on the new album he takes the title to heart, equally comfortable singing power chord-driven rockers, country flavored folk rock, and personal folk fare.”

“Shawn P. Rohlf’s busker punk sensibilities come roaring out of the night like a box car from Barstow, all desert dust and whiskey breath. His new solo album “Country Mouse, City Mouse” bears witness to Rohlf’s prairie roots, wry wit, and street-tested, multi-instrumental mastery.”
