“One of the hardest working women in the music industry.” – Dan Grigsby, Grammy Award Winning Producer and Engineer

Native Brooklynite Christina LaRocca is no stranger to setting standards. Her voice and talent have been heard across the states and overseas in festivals such as CMJ 2010-2012, SXSW 2012 and shared bills with such as Billie Joe of Greenday, UK pop star VV Brown, Ari Hest, Ingrid Michaelson, and Danielia Cotton. You can catch her at the Black Paint Music Austin Showcase Friday March 15th, 2013.  She has also been seen singing the National Anthem for several stadiums in the NYC area like Red Bull Arena and SI Yankee Stadium. Her innovation as a singer-songwriter echoes rich vocals with a haunting infusion of Folk and R&B. Committed and driven, Christina draws her inspiration through one simple and profound act- creating excellent music. As a result of her passion and experience, Christina has expanded her expertise by creating “L Rock Entertainment.” L Rock Entertainment” is a NYC based company dedicated to live performance and recorded music through musicians committed to creating art in their music. Whether on stage singing, or as a business woman, Christina continues to be an element of opportunity and possibility in today’s Music Industry.

Christina LaRocca grew up under her mother’s musical influence, hoping to one day to sing as beautifully as her. With the record player constantly spinning Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole, and Aretha Franklin and it’s easy to see where Christina got her soulful and smooth sound. After moving from Brooklyn to Staten Island, during her teen years Christina found herself listening to listening to female radio stars like No Doubt, TLC, Fiona Apple, Alanis Morsette, and Lauryn Hill. She started auditioning for plays and realizing theatre wasn’t satisfying her musical impulse, she picked up a guitar and following her father’s beatnik poetic ways, dug into the deep dark mass throbbing inside her heart and began writing her own music. By 2005 Christina had caught the ears of local musicians such as Carl Gallagher and Dorian Lake. After jamming at a hurricane Katrina fund-raiser, they decided to name their newly found project Heavy Weather.

Jordani & The Sun Kings is a soul pop band based in Seattle/Tacoma, Washington.  Their nostalgic grooves, catchy pop melodies, and experienced musicianship combine to create songs simultaneously drenched in feel-good vibes and honest, vulnerable lyricism.

Birthed in the recording studio, the band began as a solo recording project of songwriter/producer, Jordani Sarreal.  From the touring band of neo-soul artist, Dwele, came the rhythm section: Benji Demps on drums and Noe Rodriguez on bass.  Max Watters on guitar was a new addition as well, having played with Jordani in other bands previously (Ethan Tucker, Stephanie Anne Johnson).  It was quickly realized that this line-up of musicians was more than a backing band, but a complete package of musical chemistry, drawing inspiration from each member’s musical backgrounds. From R&B, Soul, Gospel, Jazz, and Pop, their songs are genre-defying entities that are created purely for the story of the song.

Less than one year into their journey, Jordani & The Sun Kings have toured the West Coast, released a Live Album, have radio singles being released this Fall, debuting on their Fall tour in Oregon. They are currently in the studio recording their full-length studio album due to be released Spring 2018.
