"‘Real World: Brooklyn’ gets a Boston soundtrack""

If anyone caught the premiere of the “Real World: Brooklyn” last night, chances are you heard a bit of Boston even though there aren’t any Hub cats on the cast. (Personal trainer guy Scott Herman is the closest local, hailing from
Salem, N.H.).

But if we were robbed of any local sights on last night’s first episode, we at least got some Boston sounds, as singer-songwriter Jon Robert had a troika of unreleased songs played during the show.

MTV aired three new cuts from the Ipswich native’s upcoming album, “Meant To Be”: “Marilyn,” “Only In Your Eyes” and the album’s title track. If you missed it last night – fear not. The premiere airs again this afternoon at 2:30 and 3:30 p.m., and tonight at 8 p.m.

Robert and his arsenal of melodies is no stranger to song placement on MTV. He’s had about 15 of his songs used on various shows on the former music network in the past 18 months or so, and his track “Touch Down” was recently included in season three finale of “The Hills.” Robert was also featured as “Artist of the Week” on MTVu, the network’s online aim towards college students.

Check out his songs at or at the “Real World: Brooklyn” music page at Robert’s next local gig is an RSVP-only acoustic show at the Jamspot in Somerville Jan. 16, then hits Atwood’s Tavern in Cambridge with a full band Jan. 24. - Michael Marotta

Originally from the small coastal town of Ipswich Massachusetts.
Jon Robert's Sophomore release 'Purple Heart Cadillac' released July 14th 2011, debuted at #7 on iTunes Top Singer / Songwriter Charts Globally.

Over the past five years, Jon has performed over 400 shows to crowds of up to 18,000 in attendance.
It all started with a call from a leading artist management company asking JR to perform in front of a sold-out 4000 seat arena opening for the teen pop sensation JoJo. The reaction from the crowd was visibly sensational, and led to JR opening for JOHN MAYER, MAROON 5, JAMES BLUNT, COUNTING CROWS, THE JONAS BROTHERS AND THE POLICE.
The debut 'Meant To Be' has been licensed to MTV and other Viacom networks and has received multiple placements on "THE REAL WORLD, "THE GAUNTLET III," and most recently "THE HILLS." His song "TOUCH DOWN" was featured on the show's season finale, AN EPISODE THAT WAS WATCHED BY 33.7 MILLION VIEWERS. Disney Pictures recently roped in two of JR's songs from his previous album to re-relase the world famous BAMBI on Blu-Ray Disc.
'Purple Heart Cadillac' is currently available on iTunes and was produced by Andrew Dixon (Colbie Caillat) and features musicians Sean Hurley (John Mayer, Vertical Horizon) and Victor Indrizzo (Avril Lavaigne, Sheryl Crow) Mixed by Jeff Juliano and Mastered By Brad Blackwood.
