Pemberton Roach was raised in a circa-1729 stone farm house in Pennsylvania’s historic Brandywine Valley, with several formative years spent living on a dirt road in the Blue Ridge Mountains. His father operated a small AM country and bluegrass music radio station, where rock & roll pioneer Bill Haley once worked as a disk jockey.
Leaving home a month after his eighteenth birthday, Pemberton established a career as a musician-for-hire, performing around the world at venues ranging from soccer stadiums to hay wagons. After working with nearly 200 different artists and recording for several labels (including a short stint with Elektra) he began releasing music under his own name in 2020. His second solo single, "Another Round," which will be released worldwide on September 30th, has been described as "Johnny Cash on acid at a honky-tonk dance party!"
Drawing upon a lifetime of unusually diverse musical and personal experiences, Pemberton’s finely-crafted, rootsy, and instantly catchy songs celebrate dignity and humor in the lonely moments of our shared human experience, as well as the joys of a life lived without boundaries.
