Fiona's Comments

Heavily synthesized, groovy, upbeat, modern church music. What would Key and Peele make of it? God knows.

About the Album

Rock Steady is the opening track of ONE NAME, Daniel Bondaczuk's debut solo project. The inspiration for the album came out of Daniel's first and foremost influence: church music. All tracks are based on gospel hymns (hence the title) and the arrangements highlight a wide array of influences from R&B to Latin. While the nature of the original hymns yelds very lyrical melodies, there is somehow an edgy character to themes that are interposed with improvised solo sections in which different members of the band take turns on. Rock Steady was based on the tune Solid Rock translated to a funky groove.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
