Dee Rock

                                                                                                     

Dee was brought up in a home flowing with love and music.  Dee grew up with the influences of Mickey Gilley, Nat King Cole, Conway Twitty, BB King, The Allman Brothers, Glen Campbell and Ray Charles, all artists his mom and dad used to play.  These influences helped create the soulful country blues sound you hear from him today.

Dee has worked with some of the biggest corporations in the industry, including Virgin Records, E.M.I., Warner Bros and Disney music. Producing and writing for artists and recording projects led to composing songs for the Warner Bros movie, Divas.  Film and Television work, such as American Chopper, brought Dee to sing the theme song for the T.L.C. channel Biker TV show, Southern Steel. You may have even worked out to some of Dee's music on Beachbody's Slim in Six and Power 90 x series. These experiences are all part of his musical journey.

Dee is an award winning artist, having won three Josie Music Awards, Song of the Year for the bluegrass song, Mountain Strong, which he collaborated on and produced, Outlaw Country Artist of the Year & Outlaw Stage Performance of the Year for his song Wild Mustang, which included native drumming and native dancing by  his Cherokee sisters.

Dee Rocks new CD, Backroad Symphony, takes us in a new direction from his previous record, the Road Ain't Long. This  is a multi-genre collection of songs which could very well have some folks calling him an Americana artist.  His southern style remains, as always, but with this collection of songs, Dee  has decided to blend the musical styles that he  loves which include country, 70'S soul, southern rock, blues and a hint of bluegrass. 

Dancing On the Edge talks about the current state of affairs and how we have to put it all back in God's hands.

Long Way Home is a personal journey back to Dee's Family Roots.

Boots Bars & Steel Guitars puts you right in the hony tonk with those country girls.

The Other Side deals with grief and losing someone close.

Nowhere Road is the story of Dee's grandfather and the wisdom he taught about life.

Wild Mustang, with its native vibe and chanting, closes out his 12 song collection.

Dee found himself back to the joy his musical roots brought him with this album.  A time when mixed music genres were in concert together and played on radio stations across the country every day. Back when creativity wasn't determined by the latest fad or what the media thought was cool.  Audiences agree, without a doubt, they dig the music that brings a  good vibe with heart and soul

Those nights when Dee would play the Whiskey-a-go-go, the crowds would come to the shows and get down to that Soulful Southern sound the Dreadlock Cowboy was throwin’ down and continues to do so at his concerts.  From Nashville to the UK and everywhere in between, Dee provides audiences with an experience that speaks to the heart and moves the soul.
