Both Robinson brothers of Black Crowes fame are prepping new albums by their individual current projects, to be released in the coming months.
On June 24th, Rich Robinson’s newest solo album Flux will be released through Eagle Rock Entertainment. The 13 original blue-rock songs were recorded at the Saugerties, New York-based Applehead Studios that has become Rich’s creative hub. “I love being in the studio,” Robinson stresses. “It fuels the desire to create in me. I enjoy watching it unfold.” Rich is also keeping busy this spring and summer as touring guitarist for Bad Company, a jaunt that will stop at Atlanta’s Chastain Park Amphitheatre on July 1st.
Then on July 29th, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood (pictured) will release their fourth studio album, Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel. The eight sprawling tracks were recorded in a Northern California studio overlooking the Pacific Ocean, with more open-ended improvisation involved in the composition process than on prior albums. “It was an opportunity to see where our expression could take us,” Robinson explains. “For us, when it comes to making records, the looser it gets the better. It’s all about taking our intuition and following it to where our ideas can really manifest themselves. This turned out to be the most spontaneous record I’ve ever been a part of.” The Brotherhood will pass through Georgia for stops Macon’s Cox Capitol Theatre on July 21st, and Augusta’s Sky City on July 22nd.
