The Southern roots rockers ROBERT JON & THE WRECK have released “Bring Me Back Home” a new number that was produced by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Iron Maiden, Journey, Black Crowes, Joe Bonamassa) and recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles.
It’s the latest taste from a batch of new material that the band has been busily releasing thru 2023.

The single has dropped during their current tour of the southeast USA. The band plans to tour the UK this September 2023, check the dates (on tour poster below.)
“We had the pleasure of writing this song with our good friend and frequent co-writer, Ian Cullen [Jeramiah Red]” explains frontman, Robert Jon Burrison.
“The song touches on feelings of longing and isolation while being away from your loved ones, something we are all familiar with as we go on tour throughout the year.”
Thusly, their song arrives with an immense power-sliding exposition (like the morning sigh of homsesickness, perhaps) before Robert Jon’s mashfat & festerment vocals are accentuated by an assortment of jim-dandy rhythms (provided by Andrew Espantman on drums & background vocals) and humdinging bass-notes (from Warren Murrel.) While Jake Abernathie (keys) provides lots of lovely backwashing ripples.
The melody on “Bring Me Back Home” sounds as if it’s kinda English-folksong inspired, so the lyrics crumble agreeably into a gathering of guitar chords. But the chorus, nevertheless, delivers empowering rock ‘n’ roll and calls upon the fidelity of trustable love to bring us all safely back home.
Moving and transformational, this song is pure entrancement!
