When you think of one of the more promising artists the Pacific Northwest has to offer, you have to think of singer/songwriter, Rocky Sandoval. Hailing from his hometown, Tacoma, WA, this R&B crooner has his sights set on breaking the ‘mold’ in the music industry and finally shedding spotlight on Asian-American talent.

Some of his accomplishments date back to as early as 2004, starting off as a featured artist on MTV’s singer/songwriter show, ‘the SCORE’ with Ryan Cabrera; a top 15 finalist on P. Diddy’s ‘Making the Band’ season 4; and a top 50 finisher on American Idol season 1.  From there, his song hit local radio and ‘Alligator Skin’ ran for nearly 6 months on the top 50 charts for I-91FM (Washington state), reaching as high as #17, as an unsigned act.  The radio play opened up more doors as he was invited to perform at all the major events through the state annually which included Seattle Fashion Week at Century Link Field, KUBE 93 Summer Jam, the Puyallup Fair, the Miss Washington USA Pageant, the Bite of Seattle, and the Taste of Tacoma, just to name a few. He is also a constant regular in the Seattle/Tacoma music scene, performing for numerous shows and events throughout the year, opening for almost every major R&B/hip-hop artist that comes through town.

His music resume includes two official mixtapes, “Straight Out the Notebook” and “#mrversatility” which has been featured on numerous websites, blogs and even caught the attention of legendary R&B deejays DJ Finesse, DJ Chuck T, DJ Rondevu, and DJ Funk Daddy, all whom have featured Rocky’s music on their well-known mixtape series. He has penned songs for Pitbull, T-Pain, YMCMB and Grammy Award winning multi-platinum producers, Tha Bizness.

In 2013, he released his debut album “Throwback” independently.  After selling out his album release party in his hometown, Rocky continues to be a favorite draw in the state of Washington performing almost every weekend in both large and small venues. After announcing a follow-up album, “50 Shades Of Red”, Rocky signed with internet industry distribution giant, Empire, who released the project; Rocky’s demand and brand grew throughout the entire state and soon began to make waves out of state. In the summer of 2016, he headlined his first tour, a 12-city stop while working closely with Coast2Coast LIVE showcases. During this time, he also released his latest single ‘After All This Time’ which moved over 500 downloads in its first week. His brand new EP is untitled at the moment without a set release date for 2017.  He has released numerous singles as well, all which can be found on iTunes. Exclusive unreleased Rocky Sandoval songs can also be found throughout his social media outlets most notably at He is currently on heavy rotation on Pandora, Spotify, and iHeart Radio and is featured on,, MTV University and AXS TV.
