Los Angeles, CA (April 5, 2019): Following up on the critical success of her September 2018 video, "Creature," rock singer-songwriter Savannah Pope is proud to announce the release of her second video, "Rock N' Roll No More." This song is also on Savannah's upcoming debut full-length solo album, Atlantis, set for an April 26 release.

"Rock N' Roll No More" starts off gentle and builds to dizzying heights, highlighting Savannah's signature soaring vocals. According to Savannah, "'Rock n' Roll No More' is about the apparent demise, and my overwhelming love of rock music. I wrote the lyrics and melody after a mentor told me I had to become a pop artist to make it. I drove home crying, picked up my old acoustic Martin guitar, and this song is just what poured out. It's a spiritual 'anthem' to something lost... even though it's really impossible to lose." Savannah's lyrics are rife with allusions to the romantic aspects of rock culture. They are also peppered with doleful (if humorous) imagery, such as "Hang me with a Les Paul string an drown my flesh in ink / Ready your arrow as I float across the kitchen sink / Light me up and I'll slip through the drain a small Viking / Setting fire to all of my pipe dreams."

The song's accompanying video truly does the song justice. It depicts a funeral procession for rock n' roll, followed by a mass suicide, and culminating in a triumphant rising of the dead. "It reminds me of something I once heard Don Bolles say to the tune of, 'Rock is dead. It's always been dead. It's undead.' I think this video manages to capture the humor, the dread, the bereavement, and the audacious optimism involved in being a rock artist in 2019."

Savannah's songs boast stunning lyricism and vocal power. Influenced by such luminaries as David Bowie, Joni Mitchell, AC/DC, and Queen, Savannah's music blends classic rock elements with her own modern sensibility.

Since releasing her first single and music video as a solo artist in September of 2018, Savannah has wowed the press with her growing artistic presence. LA Weekly named her one of the city's must-see performers, calling her show a "...full-blown theatrical spectacle" in which Pope's "...powerful vocals are as big and brassy as her visual presentation is colorfully fantastic." Yahoo Music listed her "Creature" music video in their top 20 of the year, marking her as a formidable underdog on a list of otherwise major artists. Editor Lyndsey Parker wrote, "This clip from Los Angeles glam goddess has everything... Pope spent a full year animating (it), frame by frame, and it was worth it." Digital Tour Bus made Savannah one of their highlight artists... editor Joshua Welding said, "It's not every day that I get the pleasure of hearing soaring female rock vocals like hers."
