From the Depths of the Rust Belt
Redwater RoJo was formed by Jason Meyers (lead vocals,
guitar) and Joe Romito (lead guitar) in 2005. Their
mutual admiration for the greats- Freddie King, Robert
Johnson, and Lynyrd Skynyrd- was essential in the
birth of Redwater RoJo’s patented brew of
whiskey-drenched, down home rock and roll.
The eclectic sounds of Redwater RoJo are rare in
Cleveland, where metal is king. From
hard-hitting numbers, such as ‘Picture of a Memory’
and ‘The Wait’, to reflective tunes like ‘Your
Yesterday’ and ‘Country Song Bye-Bye’, Jason Meyers’
lyrics draw the listener in and give them something
worth holding on to. The addition of Joe Wheelock
(bass, 2006) and Derek Desko (drums, 2008) completed the
line-up. Redwater RoJo’s live shows are always the
best ticket in town on any given night, delivering a
live performance that will brings the crowd back for
Redwater RoJo has been building a solid fan base the
old-fashioned way: one fan at a time. Their dedicated
fans have followed them from gig to gig, from dive
bars to concert halls. Cleveland’s radio stations,
such as the legendary 100.7 WMMS, have been giving
them radio support as well, which is rare for a local
band these days. Due to overwhelming demand, Redwater
RoJo released their self-titled debut in May of 2007.
Their follow up, titled The Wait, was released in January 2009.
The Wait is a great collection of original music
that represents the band as it is today, as well as
giving the listener an idea of good things to come.
Electrifying live performances, solid original music…
Redwater RoJo carries on the proud tradition of the
greats that they admire. The best is yet to come.
