Editorial Reviews

Produced by seven time Grammy winner Daniel Lanois, Rocco DeLuca builds upon the brooding and haunting mood of his last solo album, 2011 s Drugs N Hymns with his new album entitled, Rocco DeLuca.

Currently residing in East Hollywood, CA, Rocco hosted a number of recording sessions in his bedroom with a number of notable local musicians, local folks and family, including drummer Oliver Charles (Ben Harper), guitarist and vocalist Christian Letts (Edward Sharpe), bassist Seth-Ford Young (Edward Sharpe), violinist Odessa Jorgensen, bassist Gus Siefert (The Black Keys, Beck), vocalist Soko and drummers Josh Collazo (Edward Sharpe) and Jonathan Wright.

Deluca accompanies his always striking voice with his trademark National guitar and lap steel.

Whereas Drugs n Hymns was notable for its spare, quiet intensity and attention to the darker side of things, Rocco DeLuca revels in a spirited spontaneity no doubt achieved through many an inspired (and oftentimes unacknowledged) home recording session among friends, yet maintains the intimacy that made Drugs so special.

The sincere sentiments evoked by the lyrics began as personal notes and stories intended to be shared with friends. Once DeLuca had chosen the best of the home recordings, he handed them over to Lanois to work his distinctive production magic.

Says DeLuca: When Daniel hears music he believes in, he simply calls it soul music. He follows his heart and instincts. He s such a raw human being and is very direct and truthful and he brings honor and dignity to all he does, whether he s playing the pedal steel or mixing. He s a master at recognizing the most important things in the mix and I trust him to find the most important sentiment, even when it s the voice of the slide guitar which best tells the song s story.

Let me start by saying that I am very fortunate to know Rocco and to have helped out in the past with his music from a retail perspective. A few years a go I was hoping that he would make a album laced with awesome guitar solos. Well that was the record I wanted him to make, and not what he wanted to do from an artist's out look. So when I saw that he was releasing a new album and working with Lanois again, I decided to go in to this with the mind set of hearing the music Rocco, himself wanted to make. Boy I am glad I did as this is an absolute masterpiece! The vocals, lyrics, and instrumentation are woven and layered like no other music I have ever heard. From the opening song Colors of the Cold to the closer Simple Thing, the music rolls over you and sucks you in for one hell of a sonic ride! Right now my personal favorite is Free (one of the best songs he has ever written) but each and every song has it's own special place here. Check out Two Brushes (and hear the sound Lanois created on Neil Young's Le Noise) and hear how he has perfected that technique. As a music fanatic, I am glad I listened to what the artist wanted to make with a very open mind, because this baby delivers so much pleasure from a listening experience as well as putting a thousands smiles upon my face. Unbelievable Rocco and Daniel, you have given us something very special here!

I'm a big Rocco Deluca fan, but this last album was a bit of a let down. My pet complaint with most of today's composers is that they write 5 or 6 lines of lyrics and just keep repeating them over and over and over.... not cool. It seems that Rocco has fallen into this same trap on this new album. Overall, Rocco is an outstanding lyrists, but not this time. Perhaps the influence of Daniel was a bit too much for him. We can only hope that Rocco gets back to his roots on his next album. Ta

I first saw Rocco in "I Trust You To Kill Me" a documentary. I love his voice. This is better than the release before this one. I still like his first CD the best. I just wish he had more variety in what he does. I buy all of his music. However, much of it is a repeat, so far.

Sounds great, but wimpy and booring, to me - my teenage daughter doesn't like it either. It's not the musicianship, singing or general performances; it's that the songs are un-interesting and nothing grooves

It was everything I thought it would be, for the recipient of it, a true Rocco fan, loved it.
