On The Entertainment Engine podcast show this week, we welcome our next guest, rock musicianRocky Kramer

Hailing from the Scandinavian Peninsula country of Norway, Rocky Kramer is truly a modern-day Viking, poised to take no prisoners as he conquers the hearts, minds and souls of rockers around the world!

Armed with a guitar, this graduate of Metal 101 constitutes a triple threat as a composer, vocalist and formidable musician.

A Viking Rocker Emerges!

Rocky Early days:

Born in the 1990s to musician parents, few could have known that Rocky would inherit his parents’ passion for music, ultimately transforming into Norway’s ambassador of rock.

While some homes have a piano, Rocky’s home had two — one for the upstairs and another for the downstairs.

At the age of five, tragedy struck when Rocky’s mother succumbed to cancer, leaving Rocky, his older brother and their father to fend for themselves. Rocky laments that “my father immediately took on the responsibility of raising two unruly boys by himself.”

Learning to play an instrument:

As the older sibling unsuccessfully attempted to follow his father’s instruction, young Rocky volunteered to give it a go. To his father’s astonishment, five-year-old Rocky demonstrated incredible skill as he traversed the smallest stringed instrument, with its horsehair bow.

Little did Rocky know that his adept performance that one day would lead to conflict and turmoil that would haunt him for years while developing him into one of the most prolific composers and profound guitarists to hit the rock scene in a decade.

Having begun writing songs on the family piano at age four, Rocky literally wrote his first album at the age of 13, his second album followed a year later, with yet a third album emerging a year after that.

At the age of 17, Rocky completed his fourth album.

Amazingly, each is a concept album that speaks to the maelstrom that often challenges youth during their formative years, as experienced by this adroit and poignant raconteur.

By the time Rocky reached high school, he and his many bands had become well known throughout Trondheim, with recognition coming in from around the country.

​While attending school in the United States, Rocky caught the attention of the Allied Artists Music Group, who soon inked a deal with this inimitable musician.

Stephan Bauer, President of Allied Artists Music Group (Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones) comments that “Rocky is the essence of modern metal, mixed with a tenacity that makes for rock legends” adding that “those of us at Allied Artists are proud to have him on the label and look forward to introducing him to today’s audiences who will find his music invigorating and his message captivating.”

Rocky has begun touring and headlining festivals with his band as he starts to present himself to wildly enthusiastic U.S. audiences.

Rocky’s first U.S. produced album, “Firestorm” was released in August of 2019 by Allied Artists Music Group, together with an epic music video, reaching #1 on the Global DRT chart, as well as racking up a Best Rock Performance nomination for the 2019 Hollywood Music In Media Awards (“HMMA”).

Rocky was voted Best New Male Rock Musician by the editors of Rock Over America Magazine and is a member of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (“The Grammys”).
