With nearly a decade worth under his belt, this long-time Tacoma, WA resident has his sights set on a breakthrough for 2018. After making his way from the underground to the mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop music scene in the Pacific Northwest, his smooth soulful pop vocals, versatile writing style and electrifying live show have primed him to be one of the best new artists in the industry. Previous stints include stops on American Idol, MTV’s Making The Band, and The Voice. Since 2010, he has released 2 independent albums that are featured regularly on Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, VEVO and on all major music outlets. After experiencing his first mini tour last summer that included 13 cities, his collaboration with industry distribution giant, Empire, has helped his name circulate among A&Rs at Def Jam, Atlantic and Universal Records. He ultimately decided to sign with REIGN, an Indie Entertainment company based out of Seattle, securing a business partnership with good friend and manager, Brian Franada. Together they co-founded REIGN Music and their big break came when a mutual business associate introduced them to Grammy nominated super-producers, The Stereotypes, whose production include Bruno Mars’ two radio hit singles: 24K Magic and That’s What I Like. Rocky teamed with August Rigo, hit-songwriter for Chris Brown, Justin Bieber and Usher on a Stereotypes produced track entitled ‘Still In Love’ and will have more collaborations on the way. The highly anticipated single is attracting a universal appeal and is the lead single to Rocky’s 2018 untitled EP.
Tenelle Christine Luafalemana has been described by many as "a breath of fresh air." Her natural beauty and wholesome smile permeates on stage as she captivates listeners with her soulful sultry sound. Tenelle isn't exactly sure of when her love for singing first started, but suggests that "growing up in Carson, CA with a big family, where talent shows are more competitive than the X-Factor itself, may have well did it!" As a child, Tenelle recalls listening to artists such as Lauryn Hill, Betty Wright, and Gwen Stefani, while watching films such as the original Sparkle, dreaming of the big stage. Years later she would find herself on that stage performing her #1 hit singles "Flava" and "Get Some" in front of hundreds and thousands of people all over the world including Japan, New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific Islands, and the U.S.
"If my singing makes you smile, and a smile can change the world... I want to make the world smile"
