Rollo is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Jasper,
Alabama. Though his style is often categorized as Outlaw Country,

Ever since he can remember, Shane had a fascination with the guitar,
but it wasn’t until he was 12 years old, when he acquired his very
first guitar, that the love affair with the instrument began. Though
he continued to play in church, he had also developed an affinity

Shane was 14 years old when he first appeared on the radio, playing
guitar and singing songs he had written on a weekly Gospel program
at a small, local AM station. Over the few years to follow, he would
practice guitar endlessly. At the age of 17, he began playing for a
local group, Country Caver Band, in a small bar. Shane would go on
to perform with a few different bands in the early 90s. In 1995, he
had his first experience in a studio, playing on several recordings
with Mark Palmer and the Mark Palmer Band.
