ROBERT JON & THE WRECK Shine

The country-soul quintet ROBERT JON &THE WRECK  are shining the light…

The Orange County, CA band — consisting of  Robert Jon Burrison (lead vocals, guitar), Andrew Espantman (drums, background vocals), Steve Maggiora (keyboards, background vocals), Henry James (lead guitar, background vocals), and Warren Murrel (bass) — have launched a new single, titled “Shine A Light On Me Brother” which will be the title track from a new studio album.

It’s a hard kick of rock and roll mixed with the gospel roots that the band grew up on…” says Robert Jon.

Robert Jon

It deals with the obstacles, hurdles, and hardships brought on by 2020, while keeping a positive perspective of moving past the pandemic and challenges that all of us in every culture have faced...”

If you can imagine the Blues Brothers playing a boogie-woogie Rival Sons number under the blazing sun at Furnace Creek, with plenty of religious soul and big ‘n’ brassy razzmatazz, you’ll be dead on target. Yep, it’s as sunbaked as cactus pupfish and as wire-haired and demented as a grizzly bear… but the number also has bullheaded emotionality and sing-out compassion. 

Robert Jon & The Wreck will take the new album on tour in September/October 2021 and February, April, May, June, and July 2022. The UK tour kicks off in at The Globe in Cardiff on September 16. Special guest on the UK tour is British slide guitarist Troy Redfern. Dates below.
