Can you talk to us more about your latest single “How Long”?
Gladly! We have premiered the song thanks to idobi Radio, so take a listen here! “How Long” will be the first new single I release since my first album “Spend the Night” about two years ago. It’s kind of picking up where I left off but I’m going for a much more Pop production this time around. I think I’ve improved greatly since then in all ways as a musician as well.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Not really haha! This song was strung together over the course of about a year or more. I think sub conscious feelings and memories were being stored and emerged as the melody came together.
Can you tell us more about the upcoming video?
I can’t give away too many details yet since we are finalizing some things but it is a love story. We are aiming for a space theme/style for the video. We’ll see how things develop, sometimes we get last minute ideas that take the video to a different place. It’s a blessing and a curse but it’s always worth it when it does happen. I’m very excited about the video It’s going to be “Out of this world”. 😉
What role does NYC plays in your music?
It motivates me to always improve as a musician because there are so many talented artist, I need to always be on my A+++ game and practice hard.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?
I might opt to release only singles followed by music videos but it really depends on how things develop with “How Long”. I aim to follow up with my second single around Nov/Dec.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
I have several songs that I’m considering for a second single but I think the next one will be my song “Set Me Free”. Not 100% yet but there’s a very good chance.
Any plans to hit the road?
Possibly. However, I’m putting my time into getting the recorded music and music videos out to the world via social media first before I make efforts to start touring. I usually play about 2-3 shows a month in NYC. I’ll tour sooner or later, I love performing live and have big dreams of playing Madison Square Garden and touring the world!
What else is happening next in Rick Rocker’s world?
