Dee Rock's Lone Star roots run deep, tracing his family from the time of Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie at the Alamo, to today.
Both of Dee's parents are music lovers and raised their children on a soundtrack ranging from Motown to Grand Ole Opry, with artists like BB King, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash and The Allman Brothers. All of that great music has shaped Dee Rock's style and sent him down the road he's on.
Dee Rock has found success in both sides of the music industry ~ on stage and off ~ from producing artists and song writing for various record companies including Virgin, EMI and Capitol Records to writing the soundtrack for the Warner Bros. film "Divas." Dee's songwriting and guitar playing can be heard on the TLC show "American Chopper" as well as on the Discovery channel biker show "Southern Steel / Milwaukee Iron" on which he also sings the show's theme song.
Dee also composed music for Beach Body including the P90X / Slim in Six infomercials.
Dee Rock is very proud of his debut solo CD, "The Road Ain't Long" and feels blessed to work with such wonderful people. Some of Nashville's most in-demand studio musicians contributed to the sound that is uniquely Dee Rock; their talent and their friendship is greatly appreciated.
Album co-producer Tom Paden has produced and written songs for artists such as Reba McEntire, George Strait, Tammy Wynette, and Kenny Rogers. Montgomery Gentry band leader and keyboardist Eddie Kilgallon also contributed to the project, co-writing "Callin' all Cowgirls" with Dee Rock & Tom Paden.
Tom Paden on Dee Rock:
"I had the privilege of working on this CD with Dee Rock. Dee is one of the most talented artists that I’ve ever worked with. Dee co-produced this CD, he wrote some great songs and played guitar on the tracks. He is truly one of the most talented artists I’ve ever worked with. Dee’s vocals are honest and real and he makes you believe every word he’s singing. It's truly country soul, sung from the heart. I am so proud of this CD and I know that everyone who hears it will want to play it again and again. Dee, thank you for letting me be a part of this great project. I love you like a brother!"
