Bremerton — Fresh off his East Coast tour, progressive blues sensation Toney Rocks touches down in the Northwest for a series of one-man shows.

Rocks has toured extensively over the past year, spreading his music along the other side of the nation.

Of his eight Northwest appearances Rocks will perform one concert in Kitsap — The Charleston in Bremerton on Sept. 19 at 8 p.m.

Contact The Charleston for tickets.

Rocks’ one-man show bears songs off his 2012 release,  “Born to Live Free,” as well as new music from his anticipated self-titled EP.

Armed with his guitar and backed by a bevy of effects, Rocks progresses through musical forms ranging from blues to rock and more. One moment he will groove through a bluesy riff, wailing out a solo. The next, he’s taking the audience on a ride through a progressive trance. And sometimes, he rocks with just the raw soul of his voice.

Rocks has said he doesn’t focus strictly on the blues, but rather, he folds together influences from country to electronic music.

“Born to Live Free” is Rocks’ third solo album and was released by his own Baby Deer Recording label. He previously released a dance/electronic album and a world-fusion album under the name Ynot Nosnibor.
