"Dancers, queens, shift perspective"

...Rock Solomon crooned "All of Me" into a mic only a few feet from me and Macy, who stared at him in awe. The old lady beamed. At the end of the opening routine, the crowd burst into applause...

...Then it came full circle, with Solomon again singing "All of Me" to our immediate right. I was looking forward at the stage, seeing what the dancers were up to as they assembled on stage, when Macy grabbed my chin and firmly directed my face back to the man behind the mic. Obviously, it was not my fole to tell her what to watch, but rather the other way around. - L'Attitudes

His new CD, Unlocking the Window, features world-class soloists who have performed or recorded with acts such as: U2, Blondie, Quincy Jones, Ray Charles & Billie Holiday to name a few, including performances in major motion pictures, Broadway and Carnegie Hall.

Seattle born with a passion for travel, Rock Solomon's music has been influenced by every part of the globe. As the son of a living Jazz Legend, he has been trained in over half a dozen instruments since childhood, and has been performing since the ripe age of seven years old. In that time Solomon has performed in nearly every type of venue imaginable --colleges, concert halls & theatres, parades, festivals, coffee shops, clubs, bars, on radio, television and in film.

The Rock Solomon Ensemble is a core trio that features a hand selected group of string, brass and woodwind soloists. Band size varies from three to seven pieces depending on region and venue. Drawing from a vast library of original material, jazz standards and cover songs, Solomon's natural born instincts to read a crowd and tailor a show makes each performance fresh and engaging. Whether performing for two dozen or twenty thousand, The Rock Solomon Ensemble inspires listeners and captivates audiences, regardless of age, venue, or region in the world.

The CD:
Featuring four master-soloists, Rock Solomons songwriting has been brilliantly showcased with an array of horns, strings, flutes and percussion instruments that flow together to create his highly distinctive, original, and yet strangely nostalgic sound. Blending Jazz, Alternative, Pop & World styles, the music sounds familiar, yet completely new. His latest album, Unlocking the Window is a testament to his experiences in travel, love, sexuality and the human condition.

Whether performing solo, or with his full ensemble,
Rock Solomon is a true, born and bred entertainer.
He confidently owns his stage and his audience.
He is a young man who has honed his skills since
childhood, and performs with experience of a veteran.
With the release of his new album, and an ever-growing
fan base, Solomons music is destined to find and
inspire audiences near and far.
