Fresh off their newly released debut rock n' roll album Narrow Plains EP (recorded at the famed Echo Mountain Studios), Black Robin Hero has been gaining a reputation in Western North Carolina and the Southeast as a band that commands attention. The Asheville, NC based band "comes out of the gate with cymbals flaring, guitars revving, kick-drum taking a beating in the punch and dance. No apologies, no awkward silences, no stammer, no sidelong glances. Just all systems go, full speed ahead, take no prisoners, charge. This is how you make an entrance."
Receiving regular airplay on Western North Carolina's acclaimed WNCW and praise from local weekly magazine Mountain Xpress to national publication The Alternate Root Magazine, Black Robin Hero has found its way into some of the finest regional music festivals and venues the area has to offer. Their live show is sure to perk up your ears as they pull you in with the excitement of a dual guitar attack, "ache and bruised knuckle intensity" vocals, catchy melodies and a rhythm section that'll keep your blood pumping well after the show is over. It's catching on and Black Robin Hero's tune has been heard on the airwaves from the Florida Coast to New England.
Formed after a chance visit to Asheville, NC from San Francisco by Matt Lane in 2009, their music is reminiscent of all that lies in between - "stretching out over soundscapes of dusty highway miles, sun-drenched plains, places found off highways and around hairpin turns." It is a sound that music lovers have been craving for a long time. Most of you just don't get it yet. But you will…Some things are just meant to be and the sound that Shawn Oldham, J. Rowland, Greg Terkelsen, Brian Ross and Matt Lane make is one of those things.
Black Robin Hero is currently gearing up to get back into the studio for their second album. Look for it in 2014!
