Rocco DeLuca and the Burden...Pure Genius

I recently watched the documentary, I Trust You To Kill Me; an indie movie about emerging band, Rocco DeLuca and the Burden. Have you heard of 'em? Well, they're financed by the one and only Kiefer Sutherland. It turns out that Kiefer is co-owner of Ironworks Music...along with his friend Jude Cole.

Ironworks is an independent label, whose main goal is to bring diversity back to the music industry. For the past few years, the charts have been over-run by Pop, Hip Hop and R&B, leaving little air play for anything else. Lablels are signing artist that target a younger demographic, but the music has no substance and often of little quality. Thanks to people like Kiefer, Jude and the artist they sign (like Rocco) the music industry is about to change.

Now, back to I Trust You To Kill Me.......

The documentary profiles Rocco DeLuca and the Burden with Kiefer Sutherland acting as their road manager, as they tour through the pubs, clubs and various joints in Europe, in an effort to promote the band.

I rented the movie because Kiefer Sutherland is HOT!!! Although didn't get to see a shirtless Kiefer in all of his tattooed glory, I did find myself becoming totally engrossed in Rocco and the passion he displayed for his music. Rocco is a singer, song writer and musician...a true artist. Rocco DeLuca and the Burden is not mere talent, but pure genius at work.
