AboutJoe Rocca

⅙ of the band Dead Obies, Joe Rocca shamelessly flirts with pop-R&B on his debut solo project, French Kiss, all the while maintaining a solid foot in hip-hop.



Co-produced by Joe Rocca and VNCE CARTER, the album French Kiss unveils a side of Joe that he’s yet to explore with Dead Obies. He shamelessly flirts with pop-R&B on more than a couple of the album’s 13 tracks (including the first two singles, Commando and Soft Drink Riddim), all the while maintaining a solid foot in hip-hop (Showbizz, Réel). Mike Shabb, Brown, Flawless Gretzky and Cape Tula are some of the artists who lend their voice to the project. In addition to VNCE CARTER, a number of Montreal-based beatmakers bring their unique touch to the album’s production, notably Ouri, DJ Manifest and Yen Dough.


The Montreal-based Quebecois rapper Joe Rocca is ⅙ of the band Dead Obies. With them, he has released two critically-acclaimed albums, criss-crossed Quebec and France on tour, and won multiple awards, locking down the group’s importance in Quebec’s music scene. While he and Dead Obies continue to work on their third album, Joe Rocca dropped his first solo project, French Kiss, on December 1st via Make It Rain Records.
