Des Rocs has been hard at work mastering his craft, consistently delivering seductive anthemic singles and an exhilarating live show to match. We’ve seen bands come and go, fighting for their 15 minutes of fame and remaking what’s been done before. But Des Rocs is on his own wave. Determined to bring innovation back to rock as we know it, Des Rocs’ authenticity and resourcefulness is undeniable. “No one’s taking risks and pushing what a rock n roll record can be. I think a lot of people want to play it safe and make copy cat radio singles… they wanna get in line and play the game but I wanna tear it all down.” he asserts. Enamored by all things New York City – the hustle, underground music, vintage leather jackets, and the bright city lights that can’t help but inspire – the native pulls from his real life experiences as well as “the idea of dreaming big“ to cultivate a familiar, gritty yet infectious sound with a modern twist.
And just like New York City, Des Rocs never sleeps. It’s no surprise that in just a year his monthly listeners have skyrocketed to over 1 million across streaming services. He’s landed on several Spotify playlists including ‘Dirty Rock,’ ‘Walk Like A Badass,’ and the cover of both ‘Rock This’ and ‘New Noise’ twice leading him to the top of the US Viral Charts. Amazon Music featured him on the cover of their ‘Introducing: Rock’ playlist 4 times while Apple Music added his tracks to their ‘Breaking Rock’ and ‘The New Rock’ playlists. His smash hit “let me live / let me die” off his debut EP Let The Vultures has racked up over 20 million streams and was used as the theme song of WWE’s Survivor Series. The single also appeared on Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and the video game Borderlands 3. Additionally, Des Rocs has secured over 20 sync licenses in 2019 alone including MTV, Deadliest Catch, NFL, CW’s Legacies and more.
Having previously toured with grandson and The Struts to name a few, Des Rocs is no stranger to life on the road and is currently gearing up to open for the legendary Rolling Stones. Fans can also catch him perform with Bring Me The Horizon prior to hitting the festival circuit this year including Lollapalooza, KABOO, and Voodoo Music + Arts Experience. Bandsintown raved: “…electric guitar riffs and bursting with charismatic energy… the double threat’s live show is energetic, gutsy, and a reminder that rock’n’roll is still very much alive and well.“
With millions of fans across the globe as an independent act, Des Rocs is inching towards the forefront of the rock and roll revolution of our time. “We’re here to prove rock isn’t dead” – you’ve heard it before, but never like this. Will you join him?

Rock is a dirty word in 2018. It used to represent singular artists whose charisma and bravado commanded ownership of a stage. Musicians like Freddie Mercury, Elvis, or Roy Orbison would strike audiences with the intoxication of their sheer presence. Today’s version of stars are more likely to strike with inflatable dinosaurs or confetti cannons. We need to be reminded what it means to truly experience rock ‘n’ roll, not just consume it. We need to reclaim the ineffable feeling of pulse-pounding, sweat-pouring, honest-to-greatness rock music.
We need Des Rocs.
“My vision is one of constant evolution, of grandeur, of big records that unite people and sonically challenge what a rock n roll record can be. The music over the next year is going to evolve dramatically.”
