BIO

If entertainment can be defined as an agreeable occupation of the mind, then Robinson Treacher has found a way to encompass this in every aspect of his contribution to music-kind.  Whether playing the role as front man to the soul-rock infused Delaware Hudson, as co-collaborator to the Alt-Country based Tensleep, or as a solo singer/songwriter, Treacher seems to drain himself of energy in the ceaseless pursuit of portraying moments of musical passion.  This passion is evident in every attempt he makes to involve us, the listeners, in the spiritual orchestrations of emotion that have been meticulously tempered into songs.

Just like the long list of New York City artists before him, Robinson feeds off the honest grit found among the “huddled masses”…coupling the blatantly obvious (to a New Yorker at least) with the deeply personal.  Chameleon-like in his approach to his songwriting, he refuses to be pigeonholed into one particular genre.  Believing that each song is forged from its own unique terrain, he takes great pains in choosing the vehicle by which passengers might best weather the bumps, potholes, and blind curves found between the first note and the last.  Admittedly susceptible to the affectations of the senses himself, he asks his audience to participate emotionally as well as physically in a “whole self” conceptual challenge, a 360 degree soul search comprised of the most joyous elation to the bitterest of pains.

With the emergence of a true “world” community of listeners and the dissolving of the old guard record company elitists, Treacher’s eclectic songwriting can be allowed to burgeon…flowing freely among the throngs of liberated music enthusiasts…authentic and unabashed in its purity and form.

There are no canvases on which to paint.  There are no seminars from which to glean wisdom.  There is only the note.  Alone, it is just that; strung together, it is a road on which to experience life.  Treacher is building this road for himself, but would be the first to admit that the companions define the journey.

Porches
Album Cover for Porches
Porches is the new offering from talented singer-songwriter Robinson Treacher, highlighting the place where great music has taken place all through the ages...or at least as long as there have been porches.   A foot stomping or a hand clapping might suffice in a pinch, and Robinson demonstrates the beauty of the rawer elements while also allowing glimmers of a more refined production shine through as well. Folk and Country are close cousins to Rock and Soul and Robinson enjoys the interplay while creating a clear impression with his great songwriting and vocals.

Robinson Treacher...Back at The Mad House
Web Artist Robinson Treacher is currently back in Sojourn's fabled Madhouse Studio to record what he refers to as "...scaled down and simplified" music for a new upcoming EP.  He and producer Mark Ambrosino have been hard at work focusing on the art of keeping it "raw".  Look for the release of some early demos from those session right here...
Danny Kalb, Al Kooper and Roy Blumenfeld in the studio
Danny Kalb, Al Kooper and Roy Blumenfeld (Blues Project bandmates) are at Mark Ambrosino's Madhouse studio to record tracks for Danny's second Sojourn release that Al Kooper will be producing. The release will be out in Spring 2011.
First Sojourn Newsletter
Sojourn published its first newsletter this week. You can see it here -
Wake Up World To Be Released Shortly
Though Wake Up World! has yet to be released anywhere - Sojourn has a hard time not allowing an advance look and purchase possibility for those inquisitive enough to make it here to our site. More than forty-five years later, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach sings again about "waking up". Be it spiritual awakening or owning religious identity or shaking off the sleep of a robotic lifestyle, Carlebach inspires the listener to reach - and to love - and to pour out our hearts.
We hope you enjoy this album as much as we do.
