EDITORS’ NOTES

As on past releases, Rocco DeLuca’s self-titled 2014 album skillfully bridges the gap between American roots music and 21st-century pop sounds. The L.A.-based singer/songwriter finds a worthy partner in GRAMMY®-winning producer Daniel Lanois (U2, Bob Dylan), who enhances the album’s insinuating lyrics and finely etched melodies with subtly atmospheric shadings. “Colors of the Cold,” “Feather and Knife,” “Congregate,” and similar tracks embellish DeLuca’s high ‘n’ bluesy vocals and ruminating guitar stylings with hints of hip-hop, electronica, and industrial rock, creating an eerily timeless synthesis that’s as compelling as it is unique.
