My name is Rocket. I am a performer and songwriter based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. My songs are accessible, but a little quirky once you dive into the lyrics. I love playing places like basements, bookstores, and dive bars. Outer space is fascinating and Saturday morning cartoons are my jam!

Silent No More

According to Wikipedia "Liner notes were an occasion for thoughtful signed essays on the artist by another party, often a sympathetic music journalist". I can't promise that I'll take on a second personality, deliver thoughtful essays, or try my hand…
