|ROBERT JON & THE WRECK|
|Reigning from southern California, Robert Jon & the Wreck, are taking the
southern rock sound established on the east coast and bringing it to the West
Coast. These 5 native californian’s; Robert Jon Burrison (Vocals/Guitar),
Kristopher Butcher (Vocals/Guitar), Andrew Espantman (Drums), Steve Maggiora
(Vocals/Keys), Nick Phakpiseth (Bass), live by three simple words…music,
miles, and whiskey. This quintet began their musical journey together in
February 2013. Within 6 months the band had not only embarked on a national
tour, but also released their debut ep, “Rhythm of the Road,” produced by
Warren Huart (The Fray, Aerosmith), engineered by Philip Allen (Adele), and
mastered by Robert Vosgien (Smashing Pumpkins, No Doubt) at Swing House
Studios in Hollywood.
This new, and even edgier material has simply added more fuel to the fire
that Robert Jon & the Wreck ignite while performing. Audiences nationwide
have crammed venues, salivating over a band that is determined to not miss the
mark. This sharpshooter like mentality was fully recognized when Robert Jon &
the Wreck won the title of “Best Live Band” at the 2013 Orange County Music
Awards, along with nominations in the categories of “Best Rock,”
and “Best Blues.”
Fueled by this success, the Wreck took the road delivering fierce performances,
emblazoned with commitment and dripping in a rawness that’s impossible to fake.
Simply put, it is difficult to ignore when these five musicians take the stage.
Little wonder they have made an impact on audiences across the country, where
they’ve played a run of sold-out shows and proudly shared bills with talent the
likes of Billy Sheehan (Steve Vai, David Lee Roth), Rodney Atkins,
Andy Grammar and RIVAL SONS.
They returned to the studio in Summer of 2014 in between tours to record their
debut album, produced by Warren Huart (The Fray, Aerosmith), at the legendary
Sunset Sound Studios (Led Zeppelin, Prince, The Doors) in Hollywood. Recording
the 10 track album, “Glory Bound” live from the floor with minimal overdubs, the
band has found there sound and strength in their songs. “Glory Bound” will be
released in February of 2015. Over the past year, the band has played notable
festivals, along with their self-booked tour including SXSW, performances at Vans
Warped Tour, Country Thunder headlined by Keith Urban & Brad Paisley, River Roots
Live headlined by Los Lonely Boys and Robert Randolph and the Family Band and
Chinook Fest ’13 and ’14 with Sturgill Simpson and The Silent Comedy. With their
new album "Glory Bound" on the horizon, and a European tour in 2015, Consider
this your fair warning America, and prepare yourselves to get wrecked by the
lion-strength energy behind the ever-growing beast… ROBERT JON & THE WRECK.
