Memphis’s history runs as long as the Mississippi. Compared to other cities in the state (sorry, Nashville) Memphis is by far the most historic and significant. The sounds of the southern delta inspire many artists who pass through and who call Memphis home. Living up to artists that came and conquered before them is no easy task, but Rollin Rosatti is working his way up.
Rollin wasted no time getting back into the groove of Memphis after graduating college. He began recording at Cotton Row Records and released his first single “Don’t Stop” earlier this year. The city’s rustic grit is what inspires Rollin’s style of soul music, and the history of Memphis is what pushes him to work so hard for a better future of the city.
His interest in music started at the age of 5, when musician Joe Leathers gave him his first electric guitar. Joe would mentor Rollin through the discovery of his passion, and since then, Rollin and his guitar have been a package deal. Without music, something huge would be missing from his life.
Rollin plans to expand on his music career within the next year. He’s working on a full record with Cotton Row and plans to release it sometime in 2019. With the support of his city behind him, he can’t fall. And if he does, we’ll be right there to pick him up.
