In early 2017, Morrow formed a band with guitarist Carlos Calvo, a Hollywood Film & TV Coach who's taught Adam Levine, David Duchovny, Ambyr Childers, Gethin Anthony, Marg Helgenberger, David Oyelowo, and many others, to play guitar. The pair had already been co-writing songs for several years. Writing music as an unencumbered way to express himself with, "no studios, no networks, and no negotiations,"
In Calvo, Rob found a simpatico collaborator with many gifts. The two work seamlessly together creating the band's original songs which will appear on their debut album, set for release by the end of the year. Working with engineer Paul Smith, of Capitol Studios acclaim, the team enlisted rock icons Bob Glaub, bassist for Steve Nicks and Journey, and Tom Petty-drummer Steve Ferrone, and began laying the groundwork for what would become a big sounding modern record with a classic sound. Key tracks include the Paul McCartney-flavored "Good As Dead," the moody Eagles-tinged "Man With Many Names," the soul-searing "Nobody Wins," the feel-good, finger-snapping shuffle of "New Face," the emotional tour-du-force, "Tyranny of Beauty," which has an epic Grateful Dead sounding outro, and the George Thorogood boogie of "Out and About," which was featured in an episode of the Freeform show, The Fosters.
In addition to Calvo, the official Rob Morrow Band members include keyboardist Jason Libs, bassist Carlos Costa, and drummer Sam Aliano (Lukas Rossi, Billy Sheehan, Nuno Bettencourt, Slash). Over the last twelve months, RMB has quickly built a loyal following in LA with spirited shows at The Mint, Viper Room, Bogie's, Molly Malone's, Venice Art Walk, and The CMO Club conference, which brings together hundreds of Chief Marketing Officers and Senior Marketing Executives from Fortune 1000 companies. They were also tapped to play the 35th Annual Eyes To The Skies Festival in Lisle, IL, in suburban Chicago, where they rocked the main stage on a weekend bill that included Cassadee Pope (of "The Voice" fame), Foghat and Reverend Horton Heat.
As a lead up to the release of the single, the band will headline a special show at Santa Monica Playhouse on Friday May 11 with further gigs to be announced in the coming weeks. Also on the bill are experimental folk outfit We Are The West and Nashville singer-songwriter Hayley Reardon. Advance general admission tickets are available for $20 with a VIP package available for $50 (includes front row seat and complimentary CDs).
