Lois Roe is a geologist by teaching, but was raised in a music home and her passions in the organic sciences possess long shared the stage with her ardent enthusiasm for music and foreign languages. Though her dad is usually a classically-trained pianist and organist, Lois’s early musical preferences were affected most by her mother’s well-known music. Among her first and fondest musical remembrances is of understanding how to sing the complete soundtrack from the “Pajama Video game,” and swooning over the beautiful tenor tone of voice of John Raitt. In senior high school, she got her first proper flavor of R&B music, which in those days included Ashford and Simpson, Cameo, Globe Wind and Open fire, Rufus and Chaka Khan, and Teena Marie – most of whom stay favorites of hers today. Hearing George Benson influenced her to understand to play your guitar and finally led her to explore jazz music. In her professional function, Lois research the ecology and physiology of the initial known (50 million-year-old) fossil whales by causing geochemical analyses of their tooth and bone fragments. Her studies have been around in cooperation with co-workers in the U.S. and Pakistan who found out the “strolling whale” in Pakistan in 1992. Lois enjoys becoming in the field collecting fossils, but also likes lab function and composing and has added to scientific content articles about early whales within an edited quantity (The Introduction of Whales) and several scientific publications, including Character. Her geochemical focus on early whales can be briefly explained in the 1998 well-known book, In the Water’s Advantage. Presently, Lois resides in the SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA Bay Region, where she spends the majority of her leisure time going to jazz concerts, volunteering at Yoshi’s Jazz Golf club, and hearing and authoring music on different online sites.
