Words Written by Anselm Anderson  Rofo Audio are a three-piece power rock trio from Royersford, PA,  which is where the band's name is derived from.

The band has transitioned through many changes from its early days as a Post- Punk band to playing folk music. Lopez has experienced a tumultuous journey in getting his music published. However, This has proved fortuitous for himself in more in regards to help from family and friends, as much to his willingness to do so. The singer recorded and engineered his latest collection of songs in his home with the plan to release a single to the end of the year; where he hopes to compile them all for an album. Lopez has recorded nine tracks so far with  " Mary Bell"   being the second single, a follow up to " Poppin' Bottles". Mary Bell  was a child serial killer in Newcastle during the sixties, who killed two males toddlers at the age of ten years old. The song looks at the perspective of the suffering and pain she
