The Rocketboys’ sound reflects the Texas landscape from which they hail: vast, yet sparse, desolate, yet rich and abundant. Familiar lyrical themes of romance and love are often eschewed in favor of songs of brotherhood, family, life, and death in the band's dynamic musical array, from guitar- and keyboard-rich anthems to gentle, ethereal whispers.
Hit TV shows "Glee," “One Tree Hill,” “Private Practice,” “Elementary,” and many others have channeled the band’s powerful thematic energy. Reviews often highlight the band’s parity to textural acts such as Band of Horses and Death Cab for Cutie while retaining the mass appeal of Coldplay, The Verve and Keane.
No strangers to the road (the band will perform its 700th show this year), The Rocketboys continually find fans across the country with a beautifully powerful live show - on tour this summer with Dustin Kensrue (Thrice) / David Ramirez and also with Quiet Company.
The Rocketboys released its latest recording project and debut on Black Magnetic Records, the "Left | Right" EP, on January 6th, 2015. It was recorded in Los Angeles, CA at Sunset Sound Studios with multi-grammy winning producer, Joe Chicarelli (Manchester Orchestra, The Strokes, The Shins).
Daniel Hart is a violinist and songwriter from Dallas, Texas. Having spent the past decade touring in and recording for Other Lives, Glasser, St. Vincent, Broken Social Scene, John Vanderslice, The Rosebuds and many others, Daniel released his first solo album, The Orientalist, in May 2012. The songs are about love, wanderlust and otherness; they are polaroids of his adventures traveling India and China over the past few years, and his obsessions related to those travels. "an album of compositions that are movingly ornate and sophisticated without feeling pretentious" - Richie Sullivan, D Magazine
Honey Son is a solo performance by Mars Wright, whose live set involves a toolkit of loopers, effects pedals, guitars, synths, drum machines and tambourines to craft sound and scenery to compliment sweet, syrupy vocals.
