New Orleans-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Ric Robertson released his debut album The Fool, The Friend last June. A fresh and authentic blend of swampy blues, rock, and country, the albums's narrative made it clear that he’s a force to be reckoned with - if his illustrious musical upbringing hadn't made that apparent already, working with the likes of The Boston Boys, Lucius, The Wood Brothers, and Rhiannon Giddens.

Like New Orleans itself, Ric Robertson’s music is a swirling blend of sounds, traditions, and stories that form something completely distinct. Though it knows and loves its musical forbears intimately, it won’t be claimed by one single musical

influence. Robertson conjures this musical pedigree into a cohesive potion, a finely-tuned sonic concoction with just enough rock n’ roll to kill, just enough blues to keep you alive, and just enough country to make you hold on to love. It’s stirred by Robertson’s distinct voice: sweet, enticing, and contoured with the finely subtle grit of Mississippi River silt and the warmth of vintage vinyl.

Ric Robertson is an artist with the chameleon-like ability to transmute from emotion to emotion, genre to genre, and instrument to instrument, all the while beguiling listeners to believe that there is no sorcery involved – just damn fine tunes.
