Florida Rocks! was founded by Steve McMullen in 2011. He started playing music at age 17 here in the state of Florida and some accomplishments include recording and playing fretless bass in live shows with a band on the Cherry Smash indie label (based in Los Angeles, CA) in the 90's, and recording vocals for a demo album at Reel Time Studios in Daytona, FL in 1995 which was shopped to labels in California as well. He now spends most of his time with application and web development, as well as emerging technologies, while documenting bands and the music scene, making videos of florida artists, and discovering new ones. He helps local musicians increase their exposure on the regional scene, and has even booked a tour for international artists 'ONE' who are distributed by Sony's Red Label.
