Pale Blue Dot - Only Love

Three days after the events of August 12, 2017, Tony LaRocco sat down with his guitar and wrote. He wrote a response. A response about love and coming together. When recording the upcoming LP, Anatomy, the plan was to record in different studios and in different cities. Having already finished tracking in Charlottesville, the band was in Nashville at the legendary Blackbird Studios. One night after a session, at the house we were staying, Tony played me and the band Only Love. I looked at him and said "we're doing this tomorrow." It was only a few weeks after the tragic events and the emotions tied to it were very fresh. We decided to also bring as many other Cville Musicians to guest as we could. Pretty much everyone jumped at the idea. Johnny Stubblefield (Parachute) on Drums, Sam Wilson (Sons of Bill) on Guitar, Butch Taylor (Dave Matthews Band) Piano/Organ, John D'Earth, Tucker Rogers, Will Thomas Reed, and Yolonda Jones adding her voice. The song was mixed by the incomparable Jeff Juliano.

Musically, the vision was to have every musician lay a footprint into the music. We wanted it to sound as if you were walking along the downtown mall on a Friday summer night. It was important to me and the band for this song to have more purpose that being another beautiful track on a great record. It needed to do more for our community. We reached out and are proud to partner with the Heal Charlottesville Fund. We are releasing Only Love and asking for donations. A $5 donation will get you Only Love ahead of the album release with all of the proceeds going Heal Charlottesville. We hope you donate. We hope you listen. We hope you love it! - Dave Stipe, Producer.

Artists

The rockfish model

  • In the current music industry model, a band pays studio/producer/engineer to make a record. This puts the band in debt and is often a struggle for independent artists. The band then sells their music and concert tickets to make up the expense.

  • Our goal is not to “change the industry,” but rather recognize that certain industry norms don’t necessarily work for independent artists. Funding a record should not be the focus for independent artists. Rather, the focus should be crafting the best music possible while providing an outlet for fans to engage and connect directly with them.

Who We are

Rockfish Music is a community of musicians and music lovers based in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Central Virginia. Founded in 2014 by Dave Stipe (Little Rhodie Productions) and Peter Agelasto (Monkeyclaus Recording Studio, Digital Relab), the idea came about after years of endeavoring to record music with independent artists as studio owners and producers. Rockfish Music was born as an organic solution for independent musicians looking to grow into a sustainable career and for fans looking to support and connect with their favorite artists.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • In the Rockfish Model, a band and studio partner to create album with. Fans subscribe monthly/annually in exchange for access all of the music created by both the artist and studio. This also includes demos, alternate takes, and content giving subscribers a direct look inside the studio process.

  • Our vision is for bands to bring their fans to the party so they can experience an in-depth look into the process on how the records come to be. A true local music community that creates, shares, supports and celebrates together.
