PLANNINGTOROCK

Planningtorock – aka Jam Rostron – is a Bolton-born Berlin-based singer- and songwriter, composer, producer and director with three critically acclaimed studio albums of left-field dance to their name – not to mention various collaborations, Opera's, film scores and remixes. A self-taught, non-binary, genderqueer musician, they’ve spent a decade plus queering sound and vision as Planningtorock. Their debut 'W' in 2011 offered up deeply queered art-pop; 2014’s All Love’s Legal (“a masterclass in left-of-centre dance music”, Mixmag), with banner-ready slogans (‘Patriarchy Over And Out’, ‘Let’s Talk About Gender Baby’), revealed their ability to combine pop-oriented music with a political message. Plannintorock's new album Powerhouse is their most personal record yet: emotionally-charged, biographical anthems drawn from Rostron’s lived experiences as a non-binary genderqueer artist, experiences around family, identity and music itself.
