Jonathan Rolling is a singer-songwriter and record producer from Reno Nevada. Though he got his first nylon-string acoustic guitar as a present for his 10th birthday, he has only seriously been writing and playing music since the Spring 2012. A few months prior Rolling was called back for Oxygen’s The Glee Project 2, an American Idol-ess singing and acting competition. Making it far enough in the audition process to meet the producers and contestants of the show – while not actually being cast – lit a fire in Rolling. He rejected the emphasis early 2000’s reality-show-tv culture placed on being a “popular cover artist” — having seen its imitations first hand — and with a new found confidence in his talent, began writing his own material and playing the local open mic scene.
