As a singer songwriter, Rocio Marron’s debut album is musically vibrant with classic and cultural nuances that evolve into an urban folk sound that is refreshingly introspective and socially conscious. A gentle undertow of vocal harmonies drifts above the strength of complex and moving string sections that envelop lyrics that are intimate and emotional. Skilled musicianship accompanies and defines each song into a category that can’t be contained by one style or genre.
As a violinist, Rocio has toured and recorded with singers Marc Anthony, Joan Sebastian and the East Los Angeles based Quetzal. In addition, she has recorded with acts such as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Raphael Saadiq, Pedro Fernandez, R-15, Tigres Del Norte, Lorenzo Antonio, Grammy nominated Caravana Cubana, and arranged and recorded as the musical director for the Grammy winning Mariachi Divas. Rocio has also performed with Josh Groban on the Tonight Show, Cuban bass legend Cachao, Los Lobos, Los Trio, and as a featured soloist with Ozomatli at the Hollywood Bowl.
Rocio has recorded for several major motion pictures including “Blow” starring Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz, “Dance with Me” starring Vanessa Williams and “The Rugrats Movie”. She has also appeared on television programs such as The Young and the Restless, Saturday Night Live, Mad TV, The Rosie O’Donnel Show, and The Tonight Show. She performed on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards, American Music Awards, Radio Music Awards, and the Grammy’s.
She teaches violin and guitar as a faculty member of the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. Rocio just finished recording her debut album of original music, which she wrote, co-produced, performed vocals, guitar, violin and viola in addition to arranging the strings and vocal harmonies.
