Following years of recording and touring as the lead singer and drummer of NY pop punk mainstays TheYoung Rochelles, Ricky Rochelle has struck out on his own to produce ‘So Far So Good,’ his first-ever solo album. "With the world upside down since early 2020, I was better suited to spend time in the recording studio than to try to play live music amidst the pandemic," says Ricky. "I recorded a 10-song album to stay sane, and I'm so excited for everyone to hear it."

Today, we are very happy to share first single ‘All She Needs,’ which is ample proof of the epic hooks, harmonies, and songwriting that will cement the album firmly in the upper echelon of 21st century American pop punk. "My mom once uttered the words, "All she needs is a broom to ride on!!" when describing some disheveled lady in a YouTube video. I immediately heard that line as song lyrics and was able to write it right away," explains Ricky. "My song made its way to a big record label in Nashville, Tennessee after being chosen as the winner in a songwriting contest. I couldn't find my good cowboy hat in time for those label folks, but my album has since found a perfect home on Eccentric Pop Records. Enjoy the music video, and beware of your evil ex when the moon is full!!"

‘So Far So Good’ will be available on vinyl in 2022 from Eccentric Pop Records, and you can expect a steady drumbeat of singles, videos, and even a full-length digital release in the leadup to the physical format.
