"Equal parts punk rock and pastoral, Rohrer has] a voice that seems unearthly in its ability to be detached and simultaneously tender."--American Poet

Approaching pleasure and terror with the same searching and determined curiosity, Rise Up traverses political, natural, and domestic landscapes with gentle agility. Beautifully crafted surfaces give way to sincere depth.
