The "Streaming Truth" (Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music etc)

Here is a list of last years final day and the streaming income at Apple music for 6 songs.
Wow, six songs streamed and I earned...1,7 Dollar , no CENT. Yes, 1,7 CENT
I had immediately invested this nice bit of money into my next ...string (more streaming necessary to get at least one string paid ;-))

People, buy the CDs. They last longer, look and feel nicer, they often include the lyrics and the musicians and labels earn at least a little bit more.
Making real music with real instruments and recording and releasing albums is actually not really inexpensive.

Keep the variety in music alive. Support your musicians & bands!
Support the magic of real music.
Don't support the modern slavedriver!!!!

Cheers, brothers and sisters

"Morning Light" official video out now!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS

Merry Christmas everybody

Official No-Budget Video (what else, right?)
Originally released in a Lyric Video for my Instagram followers in Spring 2019.
Not really a typical Mr. Rock song, but then, who cares.
The reaction was almost (close to, well, almost, you know...almost) overwhelming, so I decided to release it now officially  on YouTube, too... -well almost (I seem to like this word) official.
I added a few moving pictures of an incredible good looking, handsome man, who almost (again..whats wrong with this word, dude?) looks like me.

NEW album (alternative blues, rock and stuff like this song) DEFINITELY coming in 2020

Mail: (exclusive videos, my record collection and more)

rarely on FB, but you can follow me there, too:

Very welcome to help me to stay independent and to release my new album!
You can, for example, send a few Cents as "friends & family" to "ralli(AT)"

"Oh Jolene", new single out now!

Ralli Rock - "Oh Jolene"
A raw dirty punky little Rock'n'Roll hymn

Brand new single out now on bandcamp
 (didn't find the time to release it elsewhere, cause it HAD to be out December the 10th)

Stream & download here:

Dedicated to the one and only J.K.
Luv ya!!


PS: Beside this punky "fun project" I am currently working on a new album
 (classic rock, blues alternative blues rock, indie,)

PPS: The current version of "Oh Jolene" is the hopelessly overmastered version by O.C. to make it sound bigger as it is.. ;-)
There is also a "regular" mastered version (by Rabendorn) available and coming.

A different/unexpected album is coming!!

We are working hard on the recently recorded dirty blues & rock album,
which we started to work on in 2018.
All  tracks are recorded and the mastering process has started.
BUT  due to certain circumstances I decided to postpone it to next year.
I don't wanna rush it and I don't wanna sell it to the first label that comes around.
I may consider to release it on our small label again, before I sell my soul to "someone".
I have a couple of interesting labels in mind but I haven't contacted even one of them yet.
I want in general more time for this Baby, hence the release delay.
I don't make music for the money, obviously, cause I'm a "broken buddy", if that makes sense ;-)

Within the last years I have recorded a couple of different sounding songs, that never have been released and since last week I m back in the studio again, recording even more new songs.
When your rotten mind gets creative, you HAVE to go for it and record these ideas. I love that process and I'm glad I'm back in the studio again for another 3 or 4 or 5 new songs, which aren't true blues or true classic rock tracks, though they always sound like, well, me.

Today I thought to myself: damn it, all of these "different sounding" songs could make a damn nice and interesting album ( I am more or less sober at the moment, so neither whisky and definitely nor weird drugs had an impact on this state of mind ;-) )

This new "unexpected" album MAY be nothing for the Blues or Rock purists, but then I don't care anyway. I would say it's going to be a typical R. Rock album and I am sure many Rock AND Blues lovers will like it.

So expect another album coming from me even before the long announced follow up album to "To bring to light" (2017).
These new plans surprised myself, too, and surprises are a good thing, right?

Ok, dear friends, this old man has a lot of work to do, but there will be new music coming soon.

Peace, stay tuned and stay true

New album update (September 2019)

We had a lot of different problems this year (financial, equipment, locations, time, health),
but we are finally in the last third of the mastering process.
And there is also one song which needs a few overdubs in the studio.

Looks good so far and we (and especially me myself and I) are really proud of the new songs and their variety. Probably the first time at all that we are proud of something ;-)

Often the hardest roads lead to the best results.

Anyway, more news to come and still a little work to do.

Stay tuned and make a lot of love in the meantime
and...have a freaking drink on me!
Mr. Ralli Rock
