"Playing For Change (Concert Review)"

Working with his slammin’ crew of veteran rockers – including electric guitarist and frequent co-writer Carlos Calvo - Morrow packed the house for what doubled as a release party for his new single “Tyranny of Beauty,” a slow simmering but ultimately explosive power ballad about our attraction to beauty and how we’re mysteriously captivated by it. His passionate, emotionally rangy voice – which for me compares favorably to 80’s pop/rocker Corey Hart – and crisp, jangly guitar playing took the enthusiastic crowd on a trip through 55 minutes of compelling originals with dynamic variations in tempo.

As he did a few months ago at Bogie’s in Westlake, he scored big with the rumbling, high octane “Out & About” and the irrepressible, ultra-infectious “Jean Jane Joan” (a clever response to his wife’s unusual name, Debbon). Balancing these was the gentle sparkle of his and Calvo’s strings and their sweet harmonies during the wistful ballad “The Way Things Go.” Unrestricted by TV scripts, Morrow is a lively, entertaining and multi-dimensional force of nature, prone to dancing and jumping around and otherwise engaging his fans whenever the groove kicks up. His bouncy and blistering closer, based on the Jack White version of the blues classic “I’m Shakin’” gave him his best opportunity to do just that. - Music Connection

"California Consortium of Song (Concert Review)"

Actor Rob Morrow, known for nuanced performances on acclaimed shows such as Northern Exposure, Billions, and Numb3rs, closed out the festivities with power-packed proclivity. Opening with an acoustic number, the affecting “What Have We Become,” the band soon racheted things up to ten as Morrow’s sidemen unleashed serious acumen. Flanked by lead guitarist Carlos Calvo, a Hollywood Film & TV Coach who’s taught Adam Levine, David Duchovny, Ambyr Childers, and others, to play guitar, the band is a well-oiled machine, with mind-melting machinations emanating from keyboardist Jason Libs, bassist Carlos Costa, and drummer Sam Aliano, known for his work with Billy Sheehan, Nuno Bettencourt, and Slash.

Summits of their sixty-minute set included the Paul McCartney-flavored “Good As Dead,” the moody Eagles-tinged “Man With Many Names,” the soul-soothing “Then It’s Gone,” the feel-good, finger-snapping shuffle of “The New, New Face,” the emotional tour-du-force, “Tyranny of Beauty,” which has a gorgeous Grateful Dead sounding outro, and the George Thorogood boogie of “Out and About,” which Morrow told the audience, was featured in an episode of the TV show, The Fosters.

For the final frontier of the rhapsodic journey of consorting with the extraordinary, Rob Morrow and brethren blazed through a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In the Dark,” which saw every band member flex their virtuosity, and then finished with an all-hands-on-deck, free-for-all for The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” Hayley joined on harmony vocals on the chorus and Brett and John, from We Are The West, took a verse and played guitar. The crowd and crowned became one as pure joy abound, and in that moment, the universe zeroed into focus. These are the moments that make it all worth it. House lights up, good vibes imbibed. Friends, family, music and community, we left with the only thing we need. Exile from the mainstream. - Performer Magazine

"California Consortium of Song (Concert Review)"

The beloved actor Rob Morrow bought his funky country blues band RMB to the Santa Monica Playhouse’s community theater stage, playing for a small audience as part of the gig by the extraordinary, eclectic country-jazz-pop band We Are the West’s. This was WAW’s second concert at the historic Playhouse as part of the Playhouse Sessions, a concert production which raises funds for arts education & community outreach in LA. It was the first time I had seen RMB and Morrow and they were hot!

RMB has been around for some time and played at local La clubs like The Mint, the Viper Room, Molly Malone’s and even at the Venice Beach Art Walk. Rob himself is a crackerjack guitar player, first class songwriter and a proficient singer. The band – Carlos Calvo on guitar and also co-writer and backing vocals, Sam Aliano on drums, Carlos Costa on bass, and Jason Libs on keys – is also crackerjack. They play like they have been doing all their lives with Morrow, modulating their input to keep the vocals forward while laying down solos when the flow calls for it.

Completely at home on the tiny stage with fans sitting 3 feet in front of him, Morrow engaged us with his self-effacing smile, twinkling eyes, stories of songs of people, banter with the band, and just plain joy at being there during the 12-song set – ten originals and two covers. - Vents Magazine

The New, New Face (single) [2018]
Tyranny of Beauty (single) [2018]
Good As Dead (single) [2018]
Debut Album [2019]



Rob Morrow, known for his nuanced acting on hit shows Northern Exposure (which garnered him three Golden Globe and two Emmy Award nominations), Numb3rs, Billions, Entourage, American Crime Story: The People Vs O.J. Simpson, and Designated Survivor, and films including MotherFlintThe Bucket List, and the Academy-Award nominated Quiz Show, took the music world by storm in 2018 with the release of two singles, the epic Grateful Dead-influenced “Tyranny of Beauty," and “The New, New Face,” which acclaimed Music Connection journalist Jonathan Widran championed, “a dreamy-mystical folk-rock number with a spirited organic beat and lush vocal harmonies.”

The two songs represent a taste of the forthcoming debut album by Rob Morrow Bandfeaturing Carlos Calvo, which is available for pre-order via PledgeMusic. Campaign supporters have access to an exciting mix of exclusives, VIP experiences and rare collectibles including some one-of-a-kind items from Northern Exposure. Morrow is looking forward to the journey ahead, “Making music is a salvation for me and I can’t wait to get into the studio to make this record! I’m hoping you’ll be a part of this adventure.”

In early 2017, Morrow formed a band with guitarist Carlos Calvo, a Hollywood Film & TV Coach who's taught Adam Levine, David Duchovny, Ambyr Childers, David Oyelowo, Gethin Anthony, Marg Helgenberger, and many others, to play guitar. The pair had already been co-writing songs for several years. Writing music as an unencumbered way to express himself with, “no studios, no networks, and no negotiations,” Rob fell in love with the infinite simplicity of the song form, “You can see the beginning, middle and end on one page.”

In Calvo, Rob found a simpatico collaborator with many gifts as the two work seamlessly together to create the band’s original songs. The duo connected with producer Steve Postell, known for his work with Jackson Browne, Richard Thompson, and David Crosby, to enlist rock icons Bob Glaub, bassist for Steve Nicks and Journey, and Tom Petty-drummer Steve Ferrone, to lay the groundwork for what would become a bold modern record with a classic sound.

In addition to Calvo, Rob Morrow Band members include bassist Carlos Costa, keyboardist Jason Libs and drummer Sam Aliano (Lukas Rossi, Billy Sheehan, Nuno Bettencourt, Slash).

Over the last twelve months, RMB has built a loyal following in LA with spirited shows at The Mint, Viper Room, Bogie’s, Molly Malone’s, Santa Monica Playhouse, Venice Art Walk, The NAMM Show, ALS Association’s SoCal Ride to Defeat ALS, and The CMO Club conference, which brings together hundreds of Chief Marketing Officers and Senior Marketing Executives from Fortune 1000 companies. They were also tapped to play the 35th Annual Eyes To The Skies Festival in Lisle, IL, in suburban Chicago, where they rocked the main stage on a weekend bill that included Cassadee Pope, Foghat and Reverend Horton Heat. Sounds of Timeless Jazz praised “the band’s use of various textures and tonality which revealed their mastery and skills on their respective instruments.”
