After encouragement from the people around her, she decided to record her debut album “From Within” in 2010. While making the record Rozon learned about layering tracks and production in general along with the realization that she had a natural gift for music arrangement. She quickly fell in love with the recording process as it opened up new musical horizons for her. The 2017 “For A While” album release is a testament to where she has landed with her current sound .
With the release of “For A While” Ronda Rozon brings an exciting new feel to some classic genres. Lush with addicting progressions, her indie but soulful voice draws you in. Her songs thrive with persistent pop undertones while the record boasts the aesthetic of indie folk anthems. Although the songs are diversely different, they are bonded together with her unique sound and lyrics of inspiration, hopes and dreams!
The first single and title track, “For a While” is an instant folk pop classic. Complete with smooth vocal harmonies, a pop groove that never lets go, and an infectious, cheeky chorus; the song seems to build and breathe as it plays on.
“In life I am ever moving, ever changing and have a hard time “Standing Still”. It was a personal challenge to myself, ‘Can I stand still? Can I walk on the right side? Trust that I am going in the right direction? "I tend to follow my heart and sometimes this leads me in the wrong direction. The front of the album has me standing on a railroad track looking forward to the future and on the back I am facing a fork in the road questioning which direction to go. I often question my decisions and choices in life and wonder why it seems so difficult to follow the “Status Quo.” It took me a long time to accept that my creativity has led me on a different path which requires taking risks  and heading down roads less travelled. The song kind of sums up my struggle to stay on the ‘Straight and Narrow’,” explains the songwriter of her single.
Although the single does speak volumes for the album, to get a real depth of where Rozon is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.
“I love both of my albums equally but feel this one confirmed my creative abilities in the studio. I feel like my skill level has improved in instrumentation and vocals.” says Rozon of her creative process for making the record.

You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum.

The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound.
