Meet lead vocalist Edith Rockett
Born and raised in Mercedes, Texas, Edith Rockett started her life as a singer at the tender age of five when her and her family would travel all over the Rio Grande Valley to serenade moms during the early morning hours of Mother’s day.
The yearly serenades are a tradition in the Hispanic culture and Edith enjoyed listening to her father play his guitar, “We’d put up home-made sings and people would call and pay us to serenade mothers,” Edith said. “We would go at 2 a.m. till sunrise and serenade.”
In 1997, Edith moved to San Antonio where she earned her bachelor's and master's degree, but continued to perform throughout the city. Her performances at San Antonio venues and with other local bands gained her recognition in articles by the San Antonio Express News, The Weekender, and Conexion. Reviews of her talent include “especially stunning and equally deserving of the top prize,” “soured soulfully”, “rock solid in the looks, brains and pipes department…it’s the way she carries herself on stage to deliver renditions,” and “small town manners…she’s charismatic.”
Edith is currently working on her original album and has a CD of covers by some of her favorite influences, appropriately titled Mariposa Latina for her versatility and cross cultural experiences. Edith performs all genres flawlessly, including smooth jazz, soul, blues, funk, salsa, cumbia, neo-soul, pop, country and R&B.
