Kristina Rocco is a singer/songwriter and pianist from Long Island, New York. As a public school teacher, Kristina holds a Master of Arts degree and when
she’s not grading tests, you’ll find her either on stage or in studio. Together with her husband Michael, they have released dozens of albums, performed
hundreds of live shows and have been featured in film and TV. From a young age, Kristina’s life would be dominated by her musical aspirations. As a high
school student, she was a member of numerous theater companies including the Long Island Performing Arts Center (Now the Spotlight Players) and the
James Street Players. During that time, she also belonged to the award winning show choir Vocal Motion, averaging 30 performances a year. With the group,
Kristina traveled all over the East Coast, performing in venues such as Quincy Market, South Street Seaport, Disney World’s Main stage, Universal Studios,
Epcot, and Niagara Falls. As a senior, Kristina was voted “Mostly likely be famous” by her high school classmates.
However, it wasn’t until she met her husband, Michael J. Rocco, that she began her career as a recording artist. Kristina met Michael (now her producer) in
2002 during a theater production at Staller Center in Stony Brook, NY. Ironically, they played the roles of husband and wife. Four years later,
they were married. Michael was already composing music as a solo artist and for independent movies and theater productions. Merging Kristina’s beautiful
voice and showmanship with Michael’s stellar composing and unwavering vision, The Roccos began recording music under the name
Trail of Stones.
Their first album, "11:11," was released in June of 2006 and was actually used as their wedding favors. In 2007, TOS recorded their first pop album,
"The Answer." This album featured a remake of the immortal classic “You Don’t Own Me.” Although the album boasted rave reviews, the couple were
unhappy with the artistic direction in which they were heading. At that time, Kristina & Michael began performing as "The Roccos" and released their next
album "Bird on the Line." In 2010, they formed the hard rock band "Blackout Parade" and toured the tri-state area. In 2012, their doom metal project "Cult of
Herodias" was born, earning Kristina & Michael international success. The same year, The Roccos released the group's third album "The Way Home"
followed by a regional tour. In 2013, Kristina released the album "The Tower." Two new studio albums "Oil & Clay" & "The Roccos" were released in 2014,
followed by a live local tour including a performance in honor of P.S. I Love You Day and The Alexis Pilkington Memorial Foundation. Also, in 2014, Kristina
released her studio album "Then & Now." In 2015, COH released the album "Greyvein" and in 2016, Kristina released both live and compilation albums. After
battling and conquering cancer, Kristina and Michael are back to recording, singing/playing in their bands. Kristina Rocco currently lives in Ronkonkoma, New
York with her husband and their 6 cats.
