Album: Yet to be titled (2015)


  • Born in Congo and raised in Dublin, Ireland, Andre J.P Bangala is a singer songwriter who records under the name of Rocstrong. He came to many people's attention when this song featured in the trailer for the Coen Brothers' movie Hail, Caesar!.

    Speaking to GoldenPlec, Bangala described how the track came to be used: "It's actually a licensing company I am with in LA they advertise me over there and push for these types of deals," he said, "there has been other offers but this is the one we all think keeps the power you get from listening to the song."
