Jonathan Ochshorn's Music

Before joining the faculty at Cornell in 1988, Jonathan Ochshorn was a founding member of the rock group, Rollo. For several years in the early 1980s, Rollo played in various New York City clubs. By the mid-1980s, however, the group eliminated all superfluous musicians and reconstituted itself as a streamlined recording entity consisting only of Jonathan (lead vocals and background vocals, keyboards), his brother Kurt (guitars, synthesizers, horns, background vocals), and chief songwriter Dan Smullyan.

After Rollo disbanded in the mid-1980s, Jonathan took a break from songwriting and performing; he began writing new material in 2003 and started recording and creating videos of new music (and some covers) beginning in 2008.
