Nolan Roche
Orange, CT  |  Bowdoin College '19

Nolan is absolutely thrilled to be in his first summer with the Hyannis Sound! Originally from Orange, CT, Nolan is a bass-baritone and just finished his sophomore year at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, ME, where he majors in both Economics and Government & Legal Studies. 

At school and beyond, Nolan enjoys music in a variety of different outlets. He fell in love with singing during his junior year of high school when he joined his school's a cappella group, The Blue Notes. He continues to perform at Bowdoin, where he sings with the all-male a cappella group the Longfellows and plays guitar with Pulse, a band with five of his classmates. These experiences have challenged him musically, introduced him to a variety of different artists and genres, and allowed him to develop close friendships at school.

In addition to music, Nolan enjoys hiking, fishing, running, and reading. Last summer, Nolan's love for fishing led him to pursue a job in commercial salmon fishing in Alaska. This past school year, he also served as the president of Ladd House, one of Bowdoin's eight College Houses.

Nolan first heard the Hyannis Sound during the summer before his sophomore year of high school, when his brother, Keenan, showed him some of the group's videos on YouTube. Since then, Nolan has watched pretty much every video and listened to the entire HS catalogue via Spotify. Listening to the Hyannis Sound is what made Nolan want to start singing, so being on Cape for his first summer is a surreal experience for him (someone pinch him!).  

Nolan would like to thank his family for their unending love and support, and can't wait to see them on Cape this summer! Additionally, Nolan would like to thank his friends, teachers and mentors at Hotchkiss, Bowdoin, and beyond for their countless life lessons and inspiration.
