As performer and songwriter, Rock served up a masterful main course of blues seasoned with R&B and the flavors of New Orleans. No artificial ingredients were ever used in the making of Rock's very own and very special recipe.
Rock started his recording career in 1979. Early efforts produced several now extremely collectable vinyl 45's and an album in 1983 which, today, fetches a fancy price amongst collectors. As fans in rapidly growing numbers relish Rock's current offerings, we gladly observe that the promise held forth by his early successes has been spades. The process of fulfilling the promise has steadily unfolded since 1979 and, as a result, fans have a body of recorded work available today that includes the following gems: 1991 Rock Bottom & Blues Kerosene, Family Place Verrat Records (Switzerland) 1992, Roy Book Binder & the Hillbilly Blues Cats Rounder Records 1993, The Silver King Band, Escape Fromn the Planet of the Bar Managers Danger Zone Records 1993, Harmaniac Danger Zone Records 1994, Diamond Teeth Mary, Walkin' Mary Blues Upright Records 1994, The Silver King Band, Blues, Shuck & Jive Danger Zone Records 1995, Too Many Bad Habits Double Trouble (Belgium) 1996, The Silver King Band, Live at the Dive Danger Zone Records 1997, ToneTricknology Records 1999, Rock Bottom & The Cutaways, Shake Your Boogie Leg New Moon Blues 2000 More and better to come!

While maintaining an energetic touring schedule at home and abroad, Rock made time to fulfill the roles of songwriter and producer and to undertake film, stage and TV projects. For example, Rock has produced Roy Book Binder's CD on Rounder Records, Sandy Atkinson's CD Why Baby Why as well as the Tomcat Blake CD for Double Trouble Records in Belgium. Several of Rock's songs have become hits in Scandinavia by local artists and released as singles. Further entries on Rock's resume' include his featured performance in the independent film, The Worm Killers, composition and performance of an all harp score for the Sam Shapard play, A Lie of the Mind and a featured appearance with his band in the ABC-TV series Second Noah. Rock's voice was also used in an broad based ad campaign for Food Mart stores. 

As you can see the man Rock Bottom AKA David York was quite an individual and one hell of a harp player!
