Artist Biographies:

"Born in 1977 in Switzerland, Samuel grew up in a music connected family. He played the piano from age seven and switched over to drums with the age of 14, studying with Gilbert Paeffgen, who introduced him soon to Billie Brooks, with whom he studied at the Hochschule der Künste (formerly Swiss Jazz School) in Berne later on. In 2000, after studying in Boston, he became a demand drummer in Switzerland and started touring Europe and abroad with Patrick Muller Trio, Nya, Wolfert Brederode, Susanne Abbuehl Group, Malcolm Braff, Bänz Oester, Erik Truffaz and Harald Haerter a o. Since 2003 he lives in Berlin and became one of the influental musicians of his generation for improvised music.

His flexibility and capability to move around effortlessly in different styles, from atmospheric and free sounds to straight and energetic grooves make him a very dynamical and one of the creative percussionists in the european music scene today.

He recorded several albums for ECM, Intakt, HatHut and other labels and built his own label arjunamusic records in 2012. He is touring with his own group Noreia, the Daniel Erdmann-Samuel Rohrer Quartet, Wolfert Brederode Quartet, AMBIQ with Claudio Puntin & Max Loderbauer, with Klaus Gesing and Björn Meyer, his new trio with Trygve Seim and Harmen Fraanje and works on several new projects.

Samuel has been touring all over the world and played on major festivals like the NorthSea Festival Rotterdam NL, JVC Festival Amsterdam, Montreal Int.

After meeting so many wonderful people all over the planet and feeling at home in many different places, he would consider himself as a nomad and world citizen."

"The members of this trio all share a strong awareness of sound quality and timbre, which sets them apart from other musicians. Three distinct instrumental voices - Colin Vallon's singing piano, Pat Moret's full reverberating bass and Samuel Rohrer's polyvalent drums - blend into a highly complex ensemble sound; here, too, the band has hardly anything in common with the traditional jazz piano trio conventions.

What is nearer to their heart than virtuoso pirouetting is weaving and elaborating concise sketches of moods and atmospheres, feverish emotions or bizarre combinations of sounds into dense textures. Here three artists are at work who are unable to speak with evasion or artifice. In other words: three true jazz musicians. That is, musicians who understand jazz as a living art form, and thus music that is played con amore. Tradition is neither glorified nor denied, instead, it stimulates the musicians to discover and express their own personal identity."-Tom Gsteiger, All About Jazz
