Who Am I?
Rozum originates from Reading, PA. His father was a dentist by day and a musician by night. His mother was a nurse and a homemaker. Rozum is a graduate of Boston’s world renowned Berklee College of Music. The thrill of going to Berklee and living in Boston was certainly a fantastic four-year journey. At Berklee, Rozum was surrounded by music day and night in one of the most beautiful & historical cities in the country, not to mention all of the great Colleges, Universities and Professional Sport teams located there too.
Seamless fusion of smooth jazz and pop — this is what best reveals Joe Rozum as an artist and composer. His signature sound may be soothing piano ballads, but Rozum is well known for violin duets and performances with a full band. His music has inflections of cool blues, soundtrack themes, gospel, and a hint of classical, which come from many musical influences ranging all over the map … Billy Joel, Elton John, David Foster, Diane Warren, Yanni, Oscar Peterson, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Jim Brickman, Quincy Jones, Phil Vassar, Yolanda Adams, Oleta Adams Andre Crouch, Michael Jackson, James Taylor, Carole King, Earth, Wind and Fire, Gino Vanelli, Jamie Cullum, Lionel Ritchie, John Williams, Hans Zimmer & David Arnold. The list can probably go on and on with such great musicians… And of course the great music of Elvis and the Beatles..
In addition to his passions for music, Rozum has a Huge Love & Passion for dogs and all animals……and maybe one day….. would love to start up an Animal Foundation / Organization Rescue to save, care and give animals the unconditional love that they always give to us all the time!
In closing, Rozum loves both performing solo to the Private Home Concert audience…..and on stage with his amazing band to the larger audience. “I love making the piano talk and come to life. My motto is ‘Love what you do, Do what you Love’… I love that message and apply that to the piano when I perform, write a new song or take on a new project!”
