About me
Roche, aka ‘Roach’, is a South African-based musician, spoken word performer, artist, and cannabis activist. Being an avid cannabis enthusiast for many years, Roach has formed close bonds with many community members, from growers to activists. He has also collaborated with The Dagga Couple (World renowned South African cannabis activists), appearing in their awareness-raising short film entitled: The Cost.

Cannabis has always been a faithful companion along for the ride, keeping my mind open to new ideas.

Mr. Roach

A born creative, I’ve gotten lost in everything from music to painting to performing, and through it all, I’m still discovering myself along the way. Over the last 25 years, my escape from the daily grind was found through weed, spoken word, and musical expression. I’ve played bass in multiple bands (mostly punk and hardcore), and I’ve grown many successful veggie gardens. So far, my time in this world has made me skeptical of the nature of existence. I call it valid curiosity, whereas some prefer the term “conspiracy theorist.” I currently reside in a small coastal town and own an art business called Obscure.
