"He’s that guy sitting across from you on the G line, suddenly shouting out not in subway-craziness but in epiphany. Think Eminem in his most devastatingly personal moments. This is a guy who knows words and music and the ways in which they either cooperate or compete. The Wilkman cometh.”

Biography

New York City's own, Rock WILK is a socially and politically charged vocalist, spoken word performance artist and an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, his music has been described as "rap with melody". WILK writes all of his music and poetry while riding the subways of NYC. He is currently performing his one person, multimedia performance piece, "Ma'Plej", which is a collection of musical and rhythmic stories of racism, anti-semitism, family, adoption, love and loss. The music of "Ma'Plej" is based on WILK's self produced solo album, BROKE WIDE OPEN, and the stories are WILK's true to his own life, personal stories. He is bearing his heart and soul for his audience to experience this cathartic journey with him at every performance of "Ma'Plej".
Rock can also be seen singing, rapping and participating in various poetry slams at some of the most legendary music and spoken word mecca's anywhere, like The Nuyorican Cafe and The Bowery Poetry Lounge, both New York City landmarks, in addition to doing various different versions of performances for students from the kindergarten level, all the way to inspiring High School and College students, Rock WILK is hitting a different stage and rockin' a different mic almost every night of the week, constantly on the journey to continue his growth as an artist.
Rock's music can also be heard on such TV shows as MTV's "The Real World" and "Making The Band". Seems like the Rock WILK story never ends.
