We will rock your socks off. You'll need to buy more socks. Lots more socks.


ROCKET: To rock the masses, take over the planet, and transform one listener at a time.

What do you get when you combine one of the best lead singers with one of the best bands in the Los Angeles indie music scene? ROCKET.

If you fuze together the vocal talents of Janelle Barreto (Lead Vox)
(Exploiting Eve; Crush Girl Love Panic), the musicianship of the established Los Angeles band The Pills with Eric Wibbelsmann on Lead Guitar, Bill Luna on Bass, and Paul DePatie on Drums, and mix it all together with some great songwriting, it can only rock. The Pills had lost their lead singer and started the wide search to fill the spot. Barreto seemed the perfect match both in musical influence and experience. With notable singles, countless live shows, recording studio hours, awards and accomplishments between them, ROCKET was born.

Based out of Los Angeles with music in the vein of Paramore, Foo Fighters, Joan Jett and Stone Temple Pilots, ROCKET has recently released their new music video for their single “HEY BABY” as a follow-up to their radio single and current EP “The Singles.”

ROCKET has also experienced great success at Commercial Alternative Radio with rotation on stations all across the United States including from KROQ 106.7 “Rodney on the Roq” (Los Angeles); Indie 103.1 “Go Deep” (Los Angeles); East Atlanta Village Radio – Regular Rotation (Atlanta, GA); FM 90 KACV Regular Rotation including Featured Artist interview “Under the Radar” & “The Indie Show” (Amarillo, TX), KRZQ 104.1 The Real Alternative “New Music Show” (Reno, NV); WRIF2 101.1 “Undercover Sound System” (Detroit, MI); WLKK 107.7 “Underground Collective” (Buffalo, NY); and many others.

ROCKET has been playing direct tour support show for infamous bands like PUDDLE OF MUDD, MISSING PERSONS, BOW WOW WOW, and GENE LOVES JEZEBEL.

ROCKET has recently been awarded the BEST ROCK BAND of 2015 by The Examiner Los Angeles Music Critic Awards and winners for BEST MUSIC VIDEO for “Hey Baby” from the Other Venice Film Festival. They were also recently selected by WORLD ARTS MUSIC and I AM MUSICOLOGY to perform for their “Touring Kick Off” event at the historical Ivar Theater.

ROCKET has been in the Top 5 ROCK BANDS in LOS ANGELES on ReverbNation, and recently featured twice on AXS.com. Music journalist Renee Silverman of AXS claims “We think the band is ready for larger venues and would not be surprised if we hear their music placed in TV commercials and movies very soon.”

ROCKET is currently slated to return back into the recording studio to record highly anticipated yet-to-be released tracks. ~ Now is the time to catch ROCKET while you can, because they are ready for take off and destined for the STARS.
