Late to Love
From Wiseblood Records:
“Late to Love is an original concept album that performs a reading of Augustine’sConfessions through soul music. It is not a generic ode to a saint or holy person, nor it is a neutral and uncontroversial celebration of an important ancient book. From beginning to end Rocha offers a bold and fresh reading of Augustine’s Confessions where the form is the content, where melody and verse take the place of assertions and argument.”

Freedom For Love
Freedom for Love is my debut EP. It was completed in one day (July 21, 2010) and the project is, among other things, a powerful description and record of that intimate day of art. The songs traverse a narrative of love songs, ending with a jazz improvisation. The title asserts that freedom without love is bankrupt, freedom must be for love. The EP features myself on guitar and vocals; tenor saxophone by the acclaimed jazzman, Eddie Bayard; percussion and baritone saxophone by Walter Gershon; engineered by Dan Bozek, who also played bass on the title track. CD’s and digital downloads are available on iTunes, CD Baby, and Amazon.
