For singer/songwriter JT Roach, it’s no surprise that he pursued a career in music. Growing up in Madison, WI to a proud Irish-Catholic family, JT was constantly surrounded by music, and was very close with his father – a music enthusiast and writer. He was given his first guitar in the 4th grade, and started seriously getting into music in high school. After graduating from UW-Madison, JT moved to Chicago to pursue music, while maintaining a steady job, and finally made the jump on LA.
Upon his arrival to LA, JT pursued a songwriting career and was very successful (he’s written for/with Emily Warren, Jason Derulo, Nicky Romero, Krewella and Jake Miller to name a few). JT is now ready to begin his career as an artist himself with his debut EP, Witches Lake available on November 16, 2017. A tapestry of sonic influences, Witches Lake combines the chilly falsetto of Bon Iver with the earworm melodies of Justin Bieber, the concept-driven songwriting of Ed Sheeran with the alternative production elements of Jack Garratt.
