Rock Boy Fresh is a local band from the Inland Empire making God-inspired music. They were also one of the 30 bands selected to perform in Fullerton’s College Web Media Festival.
The Inland Empire locals gave a spiritual awakening and energetic performance. Post-performance, I spoke with Alexandra Alise to see what they really are about.
What is the meaning behind Rock Boy Fresh?
Alex: Rock – Jesus being foundation, Boy – coming home to God, Fresh – Brand New as in refreshing, restored.
You classify your music as “Jesus Music”. How has Christ been a musical influence?
Alex: He gave skills talent, so when you can accept the talent, it is magnified. He gives you better skills – writing music, you can take what he is given.
What role has the IE played in your music and band?
Alex: It brought the band together, the IE let us go to LA. RBF was connected, all went to school and church and related at some point. It shaped us to meet.
