With an infusion of modern sonic sensibilities, New York City-bred recording artist, Rick Rocker manages to crack open the time capsule on all we know and love of rock and roll. “He writes songs that are near-instant anthems, made for shouting from rooftops, an arena or just your own bedrooms,” says Queens Tribune. Transparency & vulnerability are recurring pillars throughout Rocker’s previous releases including his acclaimed EP, “Love Turn” (2020.) You can find his music on all major streaming platforms and learn more at rickrockermusic.com. Follow him @rickrockermusic

Queens of Chaos Show~ 3.4.23
The Queens of Chaos show was a smash!
Thank you to Chaos Pixie for organizing the event, and playing that high energy music, along with cool and soulful artists Carissa Johnson and Step Neck! There were two extra crowds at the venue from earlier in the day that stayed for the show~ and The Repressions would like to think that their cover of the Pokemon theme song helped bring everyone together. It was a raucous night of inclusion, community and music!
OG Songwriter’s Showcase~ 2.26.23
The first OG Songwriter’s Showcase was such a hit, the Repressions are going to do it again!

MEDICATE ME is here ~ and here are the links to everywhere you stream and download music
Mental Health is so very misunderstood. In addition to the social stigma, there are rampant misconceptions about the help we seek. This song wants to let you know that you are not alone.

NPR Tiny Desk Contest 2023 ~ To The Wilds
The Repressions’ new song “To The Wilds” is the official entry for NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest 2023! This contest features independent artists and is a splendid showcase of songwriting and desks! This is the fourth year The Repressions have entered, and all four customized tiny desks can be found in the video, if you look carefully.
To The Wilds is a song about humbly reconnecting with nature. Thank you for watching and remember to seek out the other artists in the contest, it is always full of talent!
