Roe Knows Best: The Blog Becomes The Artist

2

March 19, 2015 by Roe

When I first changed the spelling of my nickname from “Ro” to “Roe”, there was a legitimate reason behind it.

Though somewhat silly, I felt like “Ro” was too naked. There wasn’t enough there. Aesthetically, there weren’t enough letters. It wasn’t balanced enough for me. That’s why I added the “E” at the end.

This was middle school decision. But also helped make my signature much more original – and fun!roemusics sig

All my life I’ve been “Roe” when performing solo because it’s my name, it’s who I am…and always have been. But similar to the middle school decision I made, it’s never seemed like enough. I’ve always felt like there should be more there.

When I started this blog in the summer of 2013, it was for reasons stated on my About page but also so that in time I could hopefully become an authority on something, even if it was on my own life and experiences. I’ve been taught, that in this Internet-swamped day and age, that is an important concept to comprehend in order to get through a lot of the white noise out there. Roe Knows Best seemed like an appropriate title to achieve that, at least superficially.

I’m trying to plan big and legitimate things regarding my music career (or lack thereof – har, har, har!), and one day I’d like to be able to perform my songs with a band, not just solo, and would like to have an all-encompassing title in order to do that. So in a similar fashion of Into It. Over It., I’ve decided to change the name of all my musical projects henceforth to Roe Knows Best. And in time, I hope to have this blog serve as the main hub and website for all future music endeavors.

And that ends my minor PSA. Thanks, everyone! Stay tuned for more music.
