Robert Jon & The Wreck Release Their New Album Shine A Light On Me Brother - Autumn 2021

Robert Jon & The Wreck are a double shot of southern rock with a blues chaser. Roots rock jams, whiskey drenched lyrics and fervent stage shows only scratch the surface of what makes them one of the best live bands to emerge from Southern California in the last 10 years. With a growing discography and billings alongside the likes of Joe Bonamassa, Sturgill Simpson, and Peter Frampton, the quintet is comprised of Robert Jon Burrison (lead vocals, guitar), Andrew Espantman (drums, backing vocals), Steve Maggiora (keyboards, backing vocals), Henry James (lead guitar, backing vocals), and Warren Murrel (bass, backing vocals).

Now the band look to extend the summer feel-good factor with the release of their incredible new album Shine A Light On Me Brother.

Ahead of it’s release on 3rd September, the band have teased fans with the lead track Everyday. This is a massively uplifting track all about getting together with friends and family and having a great time, something we are all hopefully now able to enjoy and no longer take for granted.

“Everyday is an all-out good-time jam track that was born out of frustration due to lack of freedoms that we had grown used to pre-pandemic and were subsequently denied during lockdown,” says the Wreck’s frontman, Robert Jon Burrison.
 
“It speaks about the desire to get together with friends, play music, have some beers, and just spend time with each other in person again. This track is one to be listened to on repeat and sung along to.”
 
Shine a Light on Me Brother is available on CD, vinyl, ltd. edition deluxe coloured vinyl, and in ltd. edition bundles including signed deluxe edition vinyl, ltd edition t-shirt, signed CD, ltd edition retro California vanity plates, and signed limited edition photos of Robert Jon & The Wreck. The album is available from https://ffm.to/rjtwshin and www.robertjonandthewreck.com
