about

Rocket J is classy, she’s brassy, she’s a real gone, good-looking gal who can belt out a rockin’ tune that’ll really send you!

She sings Rockabilly that will grab you by the front of the shirt, get in your face and remind you why this stuff is just plain fun music.

Her new release, Ready to Launch features eight classic Rockabilly tracks performed by this pioneering female singer of the New York City Rockabilly revival. Ably assisted by a cadre of New York live music veterans like Matt Verta-Ray of Heavy Trash and members of the Crescent City Maulers, Rocket J launches you to musical bliss. Her voice has been called a "force of nature." Give these tracks a virtual spin and see if you agree!

Rocket J fun facts:
• The nickname Rocket J comes from Rocky the Flying Squirrel of The Bullwinkle Show
• Has made appearances at both the first US Rockabilly weekend in Indiana and the premiere Rockabilly weekend, Viva Las Vegas
• Is a fanatic pug lover
• Does not possess ear lobes
• Her mutant power is her impeccable fashion sense
