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!
