LA-based artist Rocco DeLuca has signed with 429 Records which will release his forthcoming project “DRUGS ‘N HYMNS.” The new album finds the blues-steeped musician forging a solo path armed with his National guitar, distinctively emotive voice and 10 reflective, vivid song-stories. The hypnotically spare compositions conjure a world of characters seeking a certain solace and salvation while continually mired in the disturbed darkness. . The album was “anti-produced” by Rocco DeLuca and features guests such as the Echo Park Jubilee Tambo Flower Unsung Heroes Choir. ”DRUGS ‘N HYMNS” is a fascinating recording in its quiet intensity, conveying a wide swathe of emotions from quietude mixed with underlying dread to hopeful exhilaration. 429 Records will release “DRUGS ‘N HYMNS” worldwide on March 6th.
