Emerging indie singer/songwriter Rolan Bolan is on an exciting career roll. A few weeks after his debut single “Trust” was released to iTunes and other major digital retailers, the track won in the “Best Alternative Song” category at this year’s Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA).
Rolan accepted his award (on his very first nomination) November 21, 2013 at The Fonda Theatre in Hollywood. The HMMAs honor music from visual mediums, individuals who create and produce it, and both mainstream and independent musicians from around the globe.
Rolan, son of the late T-Rex frontman and glam-rock legend Marc Bolan and singer and Grammy nominated Motown songwriter Gloria Jones, released the single via Electric Boogie, Inc. to coincide with the launch of his official website www.theofficialrolanbolan.com.
Rolan, whose music was once described by Interview Magazine as “Pina Colada Gasoline,” is gearing up to release his debut album Electric Sunset (featuring “Trust”) produced by veteran producer Dito Godwin (No Doubt, KISS, Motley Crue). The album is a personal journey through Bolan’s life, recently signed on for a college radio campaign to launch this fall helmed by Howard Rosen Promotions.
Rolan and Godwin have taken an extraordinary step (for a new artist) in recording electric and acoustic versions of Electric Sunset.
His father Marc’s influence on pop culture has never been stronger. The new film “Dallas Buyer’s Club” starring Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, features two classic T-Rex songs, “Main Man” and “Life Is Strange.” Leto’s transgender character also puts Bolan’s photo on the wall of the Buyer’s Club office.
The multi-talented singer/songwriter has released several previous singles to iTunes in recent months, including “Should I Forget To Mention,” “Once In My Life” and “Up To Me,” a soulful rocker recorded in a live session a few years ago released via Transcendental Music. There are also YouTube videos available of earlier tracks Rolan recorded, including “Fire In The City” and “Missing Me.”
