A fourth-generation New Yorker and a true rock ‘n’ roller, Des Rocs is an act leading in today’s rock revival. He released his EP This Is Our Life last year and is currently gearing up for a new album and tour.

Des Rocs’ music is clearly influenced by sounds of the past, having previously toured among the likes of The Rolling Stones, Muse, The Struts, Grandon, The Glorious Sons, and more. “It was so inspiring that they just like my music and wanted to give it a platform,” Des Rocs says on playing for The Rolling Stones.

This Is Our Life is a self-proclaimed “anthemic celebration of our greatest tragedies becoming our greatest strengths.” Coming right in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, Des Rocs says the EP is, “… a piece of art dedicated to the proposition that our greatest tragedies can lead to our greatest strengths, and that sure as hell has been true for me.”
