Daniel Rocco, professionally known as Des Rocs, is an American rock musician based in New York. Born in Long Island, NY, U.S. Rocco began his musical journey at the age of 13, performing in various venues including bars and basements, eventually becoming a lawyer at Epic Records and forming the band Secret Weapons, who attained a modicum of success, opening for popular bands such as Panic! at the Disco, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer. The band went on indefinite hiatus in November 2018 and shortly after Rocco embarked on his solo career, releasing his first EP titled Let The Vultures In, followed by Martyr Parade in 2019 and This Is Our Life in 2020, with the EP’s title track debuting at number 23 on the US Mainstream Rock charts. Bringing together a distinctive combination of rock and roll, punk, and electronic music genres, Des Rocs announced his debut album, A Real Good Person In A Real Bad Place, in July 2021 along with the release of the album's first single, "MMC (Mickey Mouse Club)” as well as "Imaginary Friends" and "Hanging by a Thread," which were praised by critics for their bold and inventive sound. Following several successful tours, Des Rocs released the energetic rock anthem "Never Ending Moment" in April 2023, which reached number 33 on the charts and "Nowhere Kid" in June, signing with Sumerian Records shortly after and announcing the upcoming release of his second album, Dream Machine, scheduled for August 2023.
