Jackson Rohm
-Red Light Fever-
By Bob Silvestri
WNY Bands   The Western New York area has a rich crop of talented singer songwriters, Jackson Rohm of Mayville, NY can be included in that group with his latest release Red Light Fever. The music takes on a Mid-Western urgency and Heartland sound most closely identified with John Mellencamp, Tom Petty and other of the genre. Rohm plays hook filled songs that are sometimes anthemic but never bombastic or clichéd. That is due to the clean clear production from Steve Jacula and Rohm. The disc begins with the jangly guitar sounds of “Bleeding”. The celebratory sound of “One More Fourth Of July” and the subdued organ sound on “Honesty Is Easy” are highlights as well as “Three Miles To Lexington” and the title track “Red Light Fever”. Rohm also takes on one of the most under rated song ever, Concrete Blonde’s “Joey” with great results. Other tracks worth mentioning are “Anchor” and the bluesy CD closer “Snug Harbor Lounge”.
