About Dez Rocket
Dezert Rocket is an Alternative Rock/HardPop solo artist based most of his career out of Van Nuys, California and now residing in St. Louis, Missouri, who released his first singles as a solo artist in 2014. Dez began writing music at an early age and began developing his unique approach and style in his late teens and early twenties. The early part of his career was spent as the lead singer of several different cover bands touring a large swath of North America before quitting the club circuit entirely in the early 90's in order to focus on his original music. Dez is probably most widely known for his role as the lead singer and songwriter for Chongo Guru (1995-2002), an original AltRockPunk band playing the majority of their shows in Los Angeles and surrounding areas to a local cult following.
Dez recently completed his self-titled album “Dezert Rocket” recorded and mixed at The Tunnel and Stonyvale Sound in Tujunga, California, and mastered in Hollywood at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Dez was responsible for all of the guitars, bass, keyboards and lead vocals on the album. He also engineered and co-mixed the record with the amazing Ravi Carman who also played saxophone on several tracks. The first single off of the album is called “Shocktane”, a post-modern upbeat alternative rock tune released January 29th accompanied by a music video, followed by the release of his second single "Fooled You" in March supported by a lyric video. His third single dropped June 4th with "You Caught Me", his first official summertime banger! Stay tuned for more single releases before the entire album drops sometime in the fall, date tba.
