Review Fix Exclusive: The Rockit King Frontman Jes Beveridge Talks Goals For 2022 And More

Review Fix chats with The Rockit King frontman Jes Beveridge, who discusses how the band came together and so much more.

Review Fix: How did the project start?

JB: The Rockit King started as a West Michigan supergroup of sorts.  We were all in other bands in late 2001 but started TRK as kind of 70’s GuitarRock band.  A purposeful cross between Thin Lizzy & Boston.  Things evolved naturally from there

Review Fix: What’s your creative process like?

JB: It’s fun.  We jam, we write separately, anything goes.  We certainly enjoy creative tension and recording in general.  I will say that TRK is a tape based band.  No computers per se.

Review Fix: What’s your standout song? How was it written?  

JB: From the new album (Fourth Turning)?  Possibly our current single Take My Hand.  It was a collaboration between Anthony (Mannino, Guitar) and myself.  Lyrically, it’s about helping someone you love out of a rough spot.

Review Fix: What are your goals for 2021?

JB: We’ll probably push another single off of Fourth Turning.  We head back to the studio in December to record a couple of songs for a 7” that is scheduled to release in April of ‘22.

Review Fix: How do you want your music to affect people?

JB: I hope it moves people personally.  I love connecting with other people in that way.  It’s very real and kind of glorious.

Review Fix: What’s next?

JB: More music!  More show!  Hopefully some Summer Festivals for 2022.  We’ll always be moving forward on some level.
