Bio

ROBERT REYNOLDS
Robert is a folk singer-songwriter from South-western Ontario, whose influences include artists such as Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Gordon Lightfoot, Cat Stevens and Joan Baez. The music is Classic Folk and the lyrics are intelligent, personal, and moving with a politically meaningful bite.

Robert began his musical career singing in the Church Choir and High School Glee Club. After graduating from University with a Masters Degree in English Literature, Robert moved to Toronto where he produced the music for the Ontario Tourism Television Commercials. In 1976 Robert moved to the National Capital Region where he formed a band, Fat Shadows, with musicians from across Canada. Robert has 1 album and 3 CD's with Fat Shadows. Their album, “Squeeze It Out” made Billboard’s “Recommended LP's List” in 1981.

Robert was also Lead Singer for “The Crowd” a 12 piece R&B show band from 1992-2008 during which time he played the Ottawa Bluesfest twice and the Limestone Blues Festival in Kingston.

In 2004 Robert began a new artistic and career direction with the Acoustic Act, Robert Reynolds & Friends. This new acoustic group has proven to be the perfect vehicle for Robert’s musical style, both writing and performing.
Robert Reynolds & Friends first CD, “Bright Side”, creatively engineered by Nick Blagona at Psychotropic Studios in Toronto was released in the fall of 2004 followed by “Can’t Look Back” in 2006, “About the Money” in 2008 and “Tomorrow Never Comes” in 2010. Robert Reynolds & Friends are currently in studio working on their new CD “Roll the Dice”.

Robert has performed in the Coffeehouse, University and Bar Circuits across Ontario and throughout the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. Over the years has performed at “The Bitter End”, “Rock and Roll Café” and “Kenny’s Castaways” in Greenwich Village, New York.
Also an actor, Robert has been performing on stage, film and Television since the Seventies in
Toronto. This gives a seasoned professional quality to Robert’s stage performance which has been described as "evoking powerful emotional and intellectual responses".

CAROLE LAPRISE

Carole began her career in 2004 singing back-up vocals for Fat Shadows. The new acoustic format has given Carole’s vocals greater importance and impact. Her unique sound and natural feel for harmony makes her vocal style the perfect dynamic complement for Robert’s vocals and she has begun singing lead vocals both solo and in duets with Robert.

XAVIER SOTELO
