Kristina Rocco is a singer/songwriter and pianist from Long Island, New York. As a tenured high school teacher, Kristina holds a Master of  Arts degree. When
she’s not grading essays, you’ll find her either on stage or in studio. From a young age, Kristina’s life would be dominated by her musical aspirations. As a high
school student, she was a member of numerous theater companies including the Long Island Performing Arts Center (Now the Spotlight Players) and the James
Street Players. During that time, she also belonged to the award winning show choir Vocal Motion, averaging 30 performances a year. With the group, Kristina
traveled all over the East Coast, performing in venues such as Quincy Market, South Street Seaport, Disney World’s Main stage, Universal Studios, Epcot, and
Niagara Falls. As a senior, Kristina was voted “Mostly likely be famous” by her high school classmates.

However, it wasn’t until she met her husband, Michael J. Rocco, that she began her career as a recording artist. Kristina met Michael (now her producer) in 2002
during a theater production at Staller Center in Stony Brook, NY. Ironically, they played the roles of husband and wife. Four years later, they were married. Michael
was already composing music as a solo artist and for independent movies and theater productions. Merging Kristina’s beautiful voice and showmanship with
Michael’s stellar composing and unwavering vision, The Roccos began recording music under the name Trail of Stones.

Their first album, "11:11," was released in June of 2006 and was actually used as their wedding favors. In 2007, TOS recorded their first
pop album, "The Answer." This album featured a remake of the immortal classic “You Don’t Own Me.” Although the album boasted rave reviews, the couple were
unhappy with the artistic direction in which they were heading. At that time, Kristina & Michael began performing as "The Roccos" and released their next album
"Bird on the Line." In 2010, they formed the hard rock band "Blackout Parade" and toured the tri-state area. In 2012, their doom metal project "Cult of Herodias"
was born, earning Kristina & Michael international success. The same year, The Roccos released the group's third album "The Way Home" followed by a regional
tour. In 2013, Kristina released the album "The Tower." Two new studio albums "Oil & Clay" & "The Roccos" were released in 2014, followed by a live local tour
including a performance in honor of P.S. I Love You Day and The Alexis Pilkington Memorial Foundation. Also, in 2014, Kristina released her studio album "Then &
Now." In 2015, COH released the album "Greyvein" and Kristina is currently recording, singing/playing in her live bands.

Kristina Rocco currently lives in Ronkonkoma, New York with her husband and their two cats.
