GRAMMY-NOMINATED SINGER AND SONGWRITER ERIC ROBERSON RELEASES HIS TENTH STUDIO ALBUM, “THE BOX”

 

“THE BOX” TOUR TRAVELING TO MORE THAN 25 U.S. CITIES AND 2 COUNTRIES

 

 

August 11, 2014, New York, New York — Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter ERIC ROBERSON will release his 10th studio album, The Box, on August 12th.  With a 25-city tour and rigorous media and performance schedule, this ‘out of the box’ creative is ready to show the world what he has in store this time around. Eric has been dubbed “the FIRST singer to release an album independently” and his peers have unofficially named him a pioneer because of this feat. Eric is an amazing singer and performer but has written songs for and collaborated with such artists as: Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild and DJ Jazzy Jeff. 

 

The Box pays homage to the first place Eric learned to appreciate music: at home.  Eric comes from a musical family and his sister’s boombox AKA The Box quickly became the family centerpiece of entertainment.  At first, he began to listen and study the musical sounds he was hearing and would sit in his room and flip through record after record of musical artists from different genres:  hip-hop, gospel, soul, jazz, rock and whatever else he could find in the stack of albums. Different genres of music taught Eric about musicianship, songwriting and performance.  The first time he heard Commissioned, he was emotionally moved by the lyrics. Listening and watching Stevie Wonder taught Eric about musicianship and production and Tribe Called Quest made Eric instantly say to himself, “This is the way music should be” at the age of 15.   To this day, Eric still loves to incorporate a combination and mash up of all of these musical flavors he heard as a child with The Box.

Fresh off of winning his very first Grammy with Tedeschi Trucks Band for Best Blues Album of the year in 2012 (Maurice was the horn arranger for the 11-piece ensemble), Maurice “Mobetta” Brown has also appeared on LP’s from Santigold, Ski Beatz, Prodigy, Talib Kweli, Cee-Lo, Diddy, Musiq Soulchild and countless others.

Maurice is prepping his latest release, Maurice vs Mobetta, or, rather, Maurice’s Jazz side versus his Hip-Hop persona. Maurice vs Mobetta features appearances from Talib Kweli, Consequence, Prodigy, Jean Grae and production from Fyre Dept, DJ Scratch and Maurice himself and its a mere sampling of what’s in-store on Maurice vs Mobetta; as Brown has more in store, not only on this new effort, but coming down the pike. Know that Maurice vs Mobetta is a gumbo sound lab for this dynamic young trumpet player-arranger-producer. Read more…

You have heard Grammy Award-winning trumpet player Maurice “Mobetta” Brown before.  After all, he’s appeared on LP’s from Santigold, Ski Beatz, Prodigy, Talib Kweli, Cee-Lo, Diddy, Musiq Soulchild and countless others; but you heard his trumpet and not his voice.

Think Louis Armstrong and his trumpet uploaded for the 21st century to a Hip-Hop beat, and you begin to understand who this young genius is. Maurice is a classically-trained Jazzman mentored and supported by the iconic Wynton Marsalis and the legendary Ramsey Lewis. But “Mobetta” is also a Hip-Hop head for life, and that journey on this planet rock literally parallels the history and evolution of rap. Little wonder that Maurice not only blows the roof off God’s sky with his horn, but he also spits lyrics the way Satchmo spit his own brand of vocalese back in the day. Yup, Mobetta is a horn-playing-rhyme-spraying-dancing machine that Jazz-Hip-Hop collaborators like Donald Byrd and Gang Starr’s Guru, or Ron Carter and A Tribe Called Quest fantasized about in the early 1990s. No need to cram to make that Jazz/Hip-Hop experiment happen in these times because Maurice Brown is the living and breathing embodiment of it all, a one-stop shop destined to be this era’s Quincy Jones. And then some! Read more…
