Rolan Bolan, the Son of the Late T-Rex Frontman and Glam-Rock Legend Marc Bolan and Singer and Grammy-Nominated Motown Songwriter Gloria Jones Is Recording His Highly-Anticipated Debut Album With Renowned Producer Dito Godwin (No Doubt, Great White, Kiss, Motley Crue)

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2013) - Being the son of a rock legend has its highs and lows, but for Rolan Bolan, son of the late glam-rocker and T-Rex frontman Marc Bolan, one of the coolest things is hanging out with other members of his unique fraternity. He's jammed on the beach with Roy Orbison's sons Roy Jr. and Alex, hung out with Zoey Bonham (daughter of John Bonham and sister of Jason) and has had Planet and Sierra Swan, daughters of '70s pop singer Billy Swan, do backup vocals for him.

Currently emerging as a rock/soul artist in his own right, the Los Angeles-based Rolan ( -- whose father died in a car accident in London in 1977, two weeks before his 30th birthday -- has forged an exciting studio chemistry over the past few years with veteran producer Dito Godwin, whose vast resume includes Black Sabbath, No Doubt, Great White and members of KISS and Motley Crue.

Rolan has released several singles to iTunes in recent months, including "Should I Forget To Mention," "Once In My Life" and "Up To Me," a soulful rocker recorded in a live session a few years ago. There are also YouTube videos available of earlier tracks Rolan recorded, including "Fire In The City" and "Missing Me." Rolan and Godwin are currently remixing his upcoming single "Trust."

Rolan's passion for eclectic music serves him well as host of the internet radio show whose name, "The Electric Boogie Lounge: Live From The Pump House," draws inspiration from his father's well known song "Electric Boogie." The host station, Transcend Pop Culture Radio, is an offshoot of Transcendental Music (TMusic), the premier charity record label founded by filmmaker David Lynch -- which draws on its connections to the music community in an effort to raise funds for the David Lynch Foundation's six charitable programs.

In 2011, as part of his mother, singer/songwriter Gloria Jones' mission to keep Marc Bolan's memory alive, she partnered with The Light of Love Foundation and Rolan to launch the Marc Bolan School of Music & Film in Sierra Leone, West Africa.
