Los Angeles, CA: Rob Morrow, known for his nuanced acting on hit shows Northern Exposure (which garnered him three Golden Globe and two Emmy Award nominations), Numb3rs, Billions, Entourage, American Crime Story: The People Vs O.J. Simpson, and Designated Survivor, and films including Mother, Flint, The Bucket List, and the Academy-Award nominated Quiz Show, will release “Tyranny of Beauty," the second single from Rob Morrow Band, featuring Carlos Calvo, on September 14.
Tyranny is the follow-up to the band’s debut single, “The New, New Face,” which acclaimed Music Connection journalist Jonathan Widran championed, “a dreamy-mystical folk-rock number with a spirited organic beat and lush vocal harmonies.” The two songs represent a taste of the forthcoming debut album by Rob Morrow Band, featuring Carlos Calvo, which will be available for pre-order via PledgeMusic with a campaign set to launch on August 24. Upon launch, supporters will have access to an exciting mix of exclusives, VIP experiences and rare collectibles including some one-of-a-kind items from Northern Exposure. Morrow is looking forward to the journey ahead, “Making music is a salvation for me and I can’t wait to get into the studio to make this record! I’m hoping you’ll be a part of this adventure.”
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,” Rob fell in love with the infinite simplicity of the song form, “You can see the beginning, middle and end on one page.”
In Calvo, Rob found a simpatico collaborator with many gifts as the two work seamlessly together to create the band’s original songs. The duo connected with producer Steve Postell, known for his work with Jackson Browne, Richard Thompson, and David Crosby, to enlist rock icons Bob Glaub, bassist for Steve Nicks and Journey, and Tom Petty-drummer Steve Ferrone, to lay the groundwork for what would become a bold modern record with a classic sound.
In addition to Calvo, Rob Morrow Band members include bassist Carlos Costa, drummer Marc Slutsky, and keyboardist Jason Libs. Over the last twelve months, RMB has built a loyal following in LA with spirited shows at The Mint, Viper Room, Bogie’s, Molly Malone’s, Santa Monica Playhouse, Venice Art Walk, ALS Association’s SoCal Ride to Defeat ALS, 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, Foghat and Reverend Horton Heat. Sounds of Timeless Jazz praised “the band’s use of various textures and tonality which revealed their mastery and skills on their respective instruments.”
In celebration of the release of the single, Rob Morrow Band, featuring Carlos Calvo, will play a special hometown show at Molly Malone’s on Saturday September 15. The evening will support "Playing For Change Day,” an annual event held in more than 400 locations worldwide to help unite the global community through the power of music. Funds raised on PFC Day help provide free classes in dance, instruments, languages, and music theory for children, instructed by qualified local teachers across 11 countries.
