Bio: Rocquette is a European Rock band formed in January 2005 in Austria.
Barbie Hardrock, lead singer and song writer of Rocquette and known for her sexy charm and pink hair, is the life and soul of the band. Searching for a band name together with lead guitarist, song writer and producer Thomas M. Perry, Barbie Hardrock wanted something that included the genre definition and at the same time sounded "melodic" - and so they came up with the name "Rocquette".
Already in the early weeks and months after formation, the band was touring on their own initiative (in clubs as well as several Open Air shows such as the "Rock Pub Open Air" and "Out Of Scene Festival"), with a set consisting of mostly songs that Barbie and Tom had written in earlier band projects and now made over.
In 2006, Rocquette put together a demo album named "Detoxic", which contained this composition of songs and was spread over a broad spectrum of styles, ranging from soft pop-rock to heavy hard-rock tracks. This album was followed by another tour, already reaching over national borders and the limited number of CDs was sold out soon.
A little later, in June 2007, the first official Rocquette album called "Too Fast For Love" was presented in a large-scale CD Release Gala at the Hollywood Megaplex Gasometer in Vienna.
"Too Fast For Love", the album with the prominent Highway cover and now also world-wide available, was designed to the last detail by Barbie and Tom - both artists from the bottom of their hearts and always driven by ambition and perfectionism - as one can judge by the 24-pages wide booklet.
Again, a time of intensive touring followed - also extravagant shows like a performance as part of the „CeMM Congress – Drug Action and Chemical Biology in the Post-Genomic Era“, surrounded by the fantastic and unconventional atmosphere of the (!) domed hall of the Nature Historic Museum in Vienna (August 25, 2007). Soon, Rocquette was touring internationally and in 2009 they even made it over the Atlantic, for the first time playing shows in the south west of the United States of America. With this tour and the "webisodes", a tour diary which was documented on the internet, the international fan base of Rocquette grew widely (especially on social network platforms like MySpace and Facebook).
The success and experiences from the international tour brought up new inspiration and the style developed more and more into a broadband-like and catchy mixture of pop rock and hard rock, sometimes awaking memories of 80s top hits, but by some critics mentioned as "Pink vs Avril Lavigne" calling for attention also in the modern rock genre.
After an intense period of song writing and developing, Rocquette presents a new album on Feb 3, 2011: "13" is spreading a breeze of Las Vegas (the city where the band celebrated it´s USA debut), and the album cover, full of real tour pictures, shows a very personal review and insight into Rocquette. The sound of "13" is striking, massive, heavy on guitars, but also contains - as influenced by popular music - a more intense and versatile voice, which leads critics to point out especially Barbie Hardrock and the broadcast compatible new direction of Rocquette. Again, there is a rather broad spectrum of styles, reaching from glamorous-cheesy rock ballad, over newly integrated Blues to thoroughbred Rock´n´Roll and Hardrock - intense guitar intros and soli as normal - but, what is mentioned over and over again: on "13", one catchy tune follows the other, delivering a party feeling even with heavy rotation..
