LA-based artist Rocco DeLuca has signed with 429 Records, which will release his forthcoming self-produced album "Drugs 'n' Hymns" on March 6. It finds the blues-steeped musician forging a solo path armed with his National guitar and distinctively emotive voice.
Says producer Daniel Lanois, who worked with him on "Mercy" in 2009: "I fully believe in DeLuca. I think that he's got the power to be a contemporary troubadour, as I see it, and I hope I can be his friend for a long time, whether I am operating in the same limelight, ahead of him, behind him, in his shadow, whatever it takes, I'll be there. The one thing that I love about Rocco DeLuca is he is driven by his own heart."
