All Original Music Written & Recorded By Kristina Rocco & Michael Rocco
Except Where Noted.
Kristina Rocco is a tenured high school teacher from Long Island, NY and
holds a Master of Arts degree. When she’s not teaching, you’ll find her
singing on stage or in studio. From a young age, Kristina’s life would be
dominated by her musical aspirations. As a high school student, she was a
member of numerous theater companies including the Long Island Performing
Arts Center (Now the Spot Light Players) and the James Street Players.
During that time, she also belonged to the award winning show choir Vocal
Motion, averaging 30 performances a year. With the group, Kristina traveled
all over the East Coast, performing in venues such as Quincy Market, South
Street Seaport, Disney World’s Main stage, Universal Studios, Epcot, and
Niagara Falls. As a senior, Kristina was voted “Mostly likely be famous” by her
high school classmates.
However, it wasn’t until she met her husband, Michael Rocco, that she began
her career as a recording artist. Kristina met Michael (now her manager and
producer) in 2002 during a theater production at Staller Center in Stony
Brook, NY. Ironically, they played the roles of husband and wife. Four years
later, they were married. Michael was already composing music as a solo
artist and for independent movies and theater productions. Merging Kristina’s
beautiful voice and showmanship with Michael’s stellar composing and
unwavering vision, The Roccos began recording music under the name Trail
Their first album, 11:11, was released in June of 2006 and was actually used
as wedding favors. In 2007, TOS recorded their first pop album, The Answer.
This album featured a remake of the immortal classic “You Don’t Own Me.”
Although the album boasted rave reviews, Kristina and Michael were unhappy
with the artistic direction in which they were heading. Their last TOS album
"Bird on the Line" was released in August of 2009. At that time, Kristina &
Michael started performing as "The Roccos." In 2010, they formed the hard
rock band "Blackout Parade" and toured the tri-state area. In 2012, their
doom metal project "Herodias" was born, earning Kristina & Michael Rocco
international success. The same year, The Roccos released their album "The
Way Home" followed by a regional tour. In 2013, Kristina released the album
"The Tower" and a new Roccos album "Oil & Clay" is scheduled for 2014 on
New Frame Records.
