Rocky Kramer and Epic Kate have an epic conversation together about music, life and Scandinavia.
"Norwegian/American Rocky Kramer is such a neat guy. Genuinely talented, driven, and humble. It was really neat to talk about experiences in making a big music video, and to talk about culture shocks in our shared experiences of being expats. He's from Norway living in America and I'm from America living in Sweden." - Epic Kate
The second single from Firestorm, “Alcohol,” will be released June 4th with a music video, which was filmed during the pandemic. This is the follow up single from Rocky Kramer's Firestorm concept album, the first one being “Rock Star,” which reached #1 on the DRT Top 150 global independent chart.

Yu Dive Deep podcast: Rocky Kramer dives in to explore what our identity really is, as well as paying tribute to Aqua!
Rocky Kramer performs a rockin' version of The Star-Spangled Banner in honor of becoming a U.S. citizen on March 4th, making him a true Norwegian-American.
The Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem of the United States. Lyrics by Francis Scott Key. Music by John Stafford Smith.
Today is a truly special day in my life. This morning, I was sworn in as a U.S. citizen at my naturalization oath ceremony in downtown Los Angeles, making me a true Norwegian-American. Thank you to everyone who's made this possible; it has been an amazing journey!
God bless America!
When I first started playing acoustic guitar, “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You” was one of the first songs I wanted to learn. I loved the dynamics and how Page’s acoustic guitar compliments Plant’s gentle vocal, building it up to a frenzy, when Bonham starts hitting his drums and timpani like the god of thunder. With the song being on their first album, this was an early example of the astonishing dynamics and the pure power of Led Zeppelin.
My cover started out with just the original instrumentation, but my brain began imagining horns in various places and strings in others, adding a symphonic element that pushes the song into new territories. My final touch was adding a Jimmy Page inspired guitar solo at the end, as a tribute to his iconic and influential playing style.
