Roland was born in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia. He has proved to be a firm favourite in no less than 25 countries around the world, with a career spanning from the sixties through the millennium and a repertoire of songs in the hundreds. Roland has enjoyed great success with an extensive recording catalogue, including a Gold Record for his biggest hit "Rolling with the flow".
Our Roland is one of those rare entertainers who comands audience attention from his position at the keyboard, making it look so easy, yet delivering a powerhouse, dynamic performance which underlines a long career history of shows all over the world. Roland's formal classical vocal and piano training includes seven years in the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, equipping him with the essential skills for his stage performances.
Loving all styles of music Roland landed an early break appearing on the Reg Lindsay Country Music Television Show staged in Adelaide for the Channel 9 network, so I guess we could say that Roland is another of the many artists to receive a helping hand from the great Reg Lindsay.
