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 RJ&TW one of the best live bands to emerge from Southern California in years. With a growing discography and billings alongside the likes of Joe Bonamassa, Sturgill Simpson, and Peter Frampton, the quintet is poised for their greatest work yet. Based in Orange County, CA with a vibe straight out of the south, Robert Jon & The Wreck are blazing a path into 2021 with a new album and international and domestic tour.
May 2019 saw the release of their 4th studio album, “Take Me Higher”, the first album written with new members Henry James and Warren Murrel. This album took them all over the world, with three separate outings to mainland Europe, to the UK playing the Ramblin Man Fair in the UK alongside Foreigner and Chris Robinson Brotherhood, and to the Keeping The Blues Alive at Sea Mediterranean Blues Cruise alongside greats Joe Bonamassa, Peter Frampton, Eric Gales, Robert Randolph & The Family Band and more.
Their latest album “Last Light on the Highway,” released May 8th, 2020 to rave reviews. Even with the global setbacks caused by COVID-19, the album has done remarkably well, quickly receiving accolades from major publications including Rolling Stone, and having an unprecedented 12-week run of radio play on Planet Rock Radio in the UK with their first single, “Oh Miss Carolina.”
This year Robert Jon & The Wreck are back and ready to tear up the UK, Europe & the US all over again with their new record, Shine A Light On Me Brother. The impressive new album, written and recorded during the COVID pandemic was self-produced by Robert Jon & The Wreck, and will be released on Friday September 3, 2021. Shine a Light on Me Brother will be available on CD, Vinyl, limited Deluxe Vinyl and in limited edition bundles. The album can be pre-ordered from www.robertjonandthewreck.com.
