Additional Information

Rocco Deluca was born in the winter in Southern California. Like other Angelenos he was surrounded by local literature, latino art, motorcycles, film and music.  His early years were spent studying the likes of Billy Holiday and Nina Simone as well as the darker and raw  Delta Blues heroes of the 1920's. At the age of seven, he taught himself to play listening to these records. By the time he was a teenager, Rocco had developed the skills and the confidence to start performing for others. For the first few years, he played only specific instruments. It wasn't until later he discovered he had a voice. Street busking, clubs, theatres and and festivals, Rocco has performed around the world many times over with his 1931 National by his side. 

His authentic and unusual lyric and voice has since garnered him international attention and acclaim.

 

Rocco has had the good fortune to cross paths with and gain inspiration from various legends. John Lee Hooker gave DeLuca the opportunity to support his live shows. And later, Johnny Cash and June Carter were kind enough to invite him into their Hendersonville  home, where  values and excellence were displayed. Most recently, Deluca was recorded by and toured with  Daniel Lanois, where he learned great lessons in work and experimentation.
