By The Rock-It Scientist | January 21st 2016

In 2011 Esperanza Spalding won a Grammy for Best New Artist against Drake, Florence + The Machine, Justin Bieber, and Mumford & Sons.  This Berklee College alumni surprised everyone including me.  I was wondering, how come I never heard from Esperanza Spalding and how good is her music that she beat all these other artist that I did heard of.
I went and found her music and I listened.  Oh my goodness, it was good, real good.  This wasn't regular Jazz music, she definitely had influence from other music including pop and she is a beautiful lady as well.  I like her style, I became a fan.  Now Esperanza is out with a new video and song, "Good Lava" and you have to check it out.
Esperanza Spalding's album, "Emily's D+Evolution," will be out on March 4th, 2016

New Album Release: "Don't Look Back" by @RobbyJohnson

by Mister Promo | January 12, 2016

Robby Johnson

If you are familiar with the dialect of Robby Johnson, I bet you would have never guessed that he grew up a French Canadian.
Growing up in a French province in Canada, Robby learned to rid himself of his accent by watching American television. Along with American TV he also listen to a wide range of music. Above all the various genres, he found himself gravitating more toward country music. He began to appreciate it and fell in love with all that it had to offer.

"It's music that is healing. It resonated with me and drew me in."
~ Robby J.
The track below is a song titled "Shady".
It was released on YouTube as a lyric video on July 1, 2015.


Robby was a shy child living a poverty stricken life. With never letting go of his imagination and holding tight to his dream he was well and able to keep hope alive. He believed that his future would result in him becoming the best he could be. In whatever best that may be.

One year, on Christmas, he received a gift that would ultimately set his life on a different path. This gift was a paid demo session. It was through this experience that lead him to realize within himself was a gift as well; his voice.

In 2012, he quit his life in Canada, traveled South, stopped in Tennessee, recorded more songs and before he knew it, Nashville became his new home.

Today, however, is the release of his new album titled "Don't Look Back".
If you became fond of his lyrics and sound in the video above, then by all means, this album will be a great purchase for you.

What are you waiting for? Go for it.
And while you're at it, stay up-to-date with him through links below.

Week 1: Video of the Weekend

by Mister Promo | January 8, 2016

And the Video of the Weekend goes to...

by Fall Out Boy
feat. Demi Lovato

MPsays, "When I pressed and saw Demi working in a factory on an assembly line watching as her trainer or manager show her the wrapped dolls and what to do with them, her facial reaction was in total disgust when she caught a glimpse at the product. It was those funky N'sync dolls, I immediately took it as a hit against N'sync." The video followed the same storyline as the video for "Its Gonna Be Me". I thought they were going for the saying, "out with the old, in with the new."

Until Rock-It politely explained that he believes it the opposite. He believes that the video is expressing how society is perceiving Fallout Boy as a pop boy band instead of a "Rock Out!" group.

After hearing that it kind of made sense. Anyway, press play and view for yourself.

Stemming from Bethany, CT her song “Everything Lies” off of her second EP and “Between You & Me” was featured on season 3 of MTV’s “The Hills.” Along with her first EP, “Wait”, Amanda has sold over 2,000 copies and is in radio rotation from the Northeast to Hawaii.
