Robert is a world renowned psychic astrologer, author, poet and owner of the Berkley, Michigan metaphysical shop Mayflower Bookshop, established in 1971. Two of his most recent books are “Astrological Aspects, the Art” and “London and Paris Poems”. Robert is ALSO a prolific singer/songwriter. He’s been regularly releasing independent albums for over 20 years. FOLK ROCK LOVE (CD HR-017) is his first Hanzie release and was recorded with Bob Monteleone at Sterritt Sound from Spring through Fall in 2014 (with a couple songs from an earlier session with Bob in 2012) and released in December of 2014.
The 14 original songs from FOLK ROCK LOVE range from uplifting rockers like “Angels Are Gonna Fall From Heaven” (with George Harrison inspired slide riffs by Bob) and the majestic “Music Is Prayer” to sexy, romantic tunes like “Just A Wiggle” and “Kissing In The Dark” and whimsical numbers like “Winter Into Spring” and “Happy Birthday To You”.
Singer/songwriter Holly Bernt lends her lovely vocals AND banjo skills to a few numbers and Acoustic Madness’s Jorian Olk-Szost plays upright bass on “Hold Me”.
FOLK ROCK LOVE is a great, fulfilling album whose many moods invokes the infinite colours of a rainbow. It is, unfortunately, one of the music world’s best kept secrets and never received the attention it deserves.
