Rob W. Carlson - You Better Call Someone

Whatever the listener is looking for they will find it on Carlson’s "You Better Call Someone."

Rob W. Carlson releases his debut solo album, "You Better Call Someone," early in 2013. As a Berklee College of Music graduate, Carlson focused on jazz arranging, the music of Brazil, and lyric writing. Prior to his studies at Berklee, Carlson studied voice with Joanne Messier of Boston Conservatory, along with Rich Falco (jazz guitar), and Toshi Iseda (rock shred guitar). Since then, Carlson has been hard at work opening for legends, including Johnny Winter, James Cotton, Sugar Blue (Rolling Stones), Matt "Guitar" Murphy (Blues Brothers), Jimmy Buffet and more. Following two Billboard Certificate Awards, charting in the Top 100 on the UK Demo Chart, television performances, contributing to indie film projects, it’s no surprise that the much anticipated solo album, "You Better Call Someone," is already getting attention via international airplay.

"You Better Call Someone" features a wide array of musical styles, from upbeat swinging blues sounds to the slower folksy sound of “Turn Out The Light,” featuring Jenny Sipprelle on lead vocals. The final track, “Toxic Cameo,” is entirely instrumental. Whatever the listener is looking for they will find it on Carlson’s "You Better Call Someone." “I like mixing traditional music with new off-the-wall ideas while keeping the heart connected, and expressing how I feel about common situations--love, loss, joy,” says Carlson. “If I can relate to people through music than I’ve done my job.”

Rob Carlson worked with a wide group of people for the production and recording of "You Better Call Someone," including Jeff Root, Guilherme Vaz, and Frank Basile. Carlson engineered, mixed, arranged and played guitars, bass, keys, and vocals for 5 of the 7 tracks on the record.
