Irish musician Rocstrong shines with his  ‘All On Black’ EP, a collection of stimulating alt rock-infused gems,  produced by Rocstrong, Marcin Ciszczon and Keith O’Reilly and released via West One Music Group. 

On the idea behind the All On Black EP, the intriguing ‘Talla Boy’ reveals…”the power of money is the key message of ‘All On Black’. We have given it so much power that now things have shifted into money having power over us. How much money you have decides how far you go and how long you can survive in this modern world. This change has caused a huge gap and those that can’t keep up are forgotten, cut off and no longer accepted in society.

We put out a message that all should be equal but unfortunately this is not the case. There are people living amongst us that are so cut off from the world, primarily because of the lack of money. They don’t get to have regular conversations with other people, they don’t get to eat or have necessities that we all have, they are deprived of acceptance and human contact for years, and as a result, they become alone with no options or choices to get them out of that situation. Why?

My parents are from Congo DRC but relocated to Ireland for a better life so that their children could have a better life. It wasn’t by choice. This also gets me questioning why Congo DRC, one of the richest countries in the world (natural resources wise) is a place with the poorest people? For my dreams to even come close to coming true, I had to leave my home and chase it elsewhere. Greed has crippled the place that I’m from and the same will happen globally sooner or later”.
