Tracks such as “Ignited” by NYC-based Rock artist Scott Rocco will perpetually remain timeless. With melodies which seep just as much pure unadulterated soul as the resounding vocals, you’d have to be fairly dead inside not to get caught up in the tides of euphoria in Ignited.
Even though the vocals were transfixing, nothing left me quite as enamoured as hearing a guitarist with a nuanced style which sits in between that of James Dean Bradfield and Johnny Marr. In a feat of aural alchemy, Scott Rocco combined Marr’s jangly optimistic notes and the deep, tension-building licks which you’ll hear from James Dean Bradfield.
When you hit play, every single one of your rhythmic pulses will be in the command of this incredibly talented artist.
