Rollason's main priority now is writing and refining his music; campaigning for a major-label record deal would be a distraction. Progress, for him, means finishing his next record. "Recording Phaser and the Little Jeff tape, planning the whole release party and sort of making an event of it, that's what it's about." For now, he's in no hurry to chase fame. He'd much prefer to live in the present, where his strange and affecting songs take shape.
Jeff Rollason will appear with other local songwriters tonight (Thursday), September 11, at Tobacco Road, 626 S Miami Ave, 374-1198, as a part of a songwriters' showcase. On Thursday, September 25, the Curious Hair will play at Tobacco Road. Both shows start at 10:00 p.m.; cover charge is $5.
