ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ROBERT BURKE WARREN LAZYEYE



follow-up to critically acclaimed ...to this day offers guest spots from Rosanne Cash, Kate Pierson, Jerry Marotta



Born with a lazy eye, Robert Burke Warren honors this imperfection by naming his new collection of hook-laden Americana Lazyeye. He takes a deep look - with his good eye - at things flawed, frayed, and torn.



Lazyeye has some notable guests: Kate Pierson of the B-52s dropped in one day to add some porch shoutin' vocals to Junkman; Rosanne Cash and John Leventhal - with whom RBW co-wrote the song 44 Stories on her most recent (and Grammy nominated) album Rules Of Travel - add harmony vocals and lead guitar respectively to Build Better Wings; legendary drummer Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel, Indigo Girls, Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, etc.) who Robert met in the parking lot of his son's preschool, agreed to play on a few cuts.



Acclaimed debut ...to this day was the featured CD on NPR's nationally syndicated World Cafe and cited by host David Dye as "a gem of an album". Great press notices soon followed from Billboard, The New York Times, Performing Songwriter and more, and gigs abounded in the New York area and beyond.



After a post 9-11 forced exile from Manhattan, RBW and family settled in Upstate New York, spittin' distance from former stompin' grounds of The Band and Dylan. Eventually Lazyeye emerged. A potent blend of the White Album meets Big Pink, country and Westerberg-style, there is loss here (All Souls Day), but there is revelation (Sudden Strangers, Mask Reveals) as well as celebration (You Look Good In The Rain, Tobacco Sunrise).



Looking forward, showing off scars, gazing at you unashamedly with a Lazyeye, and sharing stories that can only come from experience. As he says in Vintage Valentine, "I'm a vintage valentine, I got creases and coffee stains/Half empty bottle of wine, half full glass of champagne/But it's all right, it's all right/ I got my eyes on the horizon/ and I'm chasing the fade".

Steve Kunzman

Great roots-rock feel, intelligent lyrics, great hooks, and musicianship.
Robert, in this second recording,continues with a great roots-rock feeling, and then some. The songs are real, lyrically rich, with great tunes and musicianship. I have found these songs have begun to imbed themselves in my brain; I wake up with the hooks running in my head - a different song each morning. The song themes are great as well, grit here, mature relationship there, and all with wonderful imagery. I can smell the Junkman, understand the need to move from a "old friend" for the needs of child, appreciate the gift of your one love. I also hear pieces of many producers and writers that I love sprinkled in- John Jennings, Rodney Crowell, Lou Reed, Gary Louris - but they are only suggested; the album is unmistakably RBW. Great work!

Lumonous harmonies of RBW will stay with you for days after hearing the CD for t
Fine songwriting, arrangements that are both clever and memorable will leave the listener waiting for the next concert notice to fly up on the e-mail!
Vocal harmonies are lovely and varied. WHO IS THE GENIUS DORRAINE SCOFIELD??? I want her record.
Robert's CD should be in every music lovers' collection. There aren't nearly enough fans.
Rock on, Robert

Lazyeye a a feast for the ears and the intellect
Robert Burke Warren possesses one of those authentic southern voices that haunts a listener well after the last track of his current cd, "Lazyeye", is finished. Warren's southern cred is authentic, and one has no doubt that his musical spirit stretches from Peachtree Street to the Alabama State Line.

"Lazyeye" features songs drenched in the tradition of the southern balladeer, and Warren's arrangements are fleshed out with a bevy of outstanding instrumentalists and formidable backup singers (Roseanne Cash and Kate Pierson).

Tracks like the sensuous "You Look Good in The Rain" remain with the listener, and Robert Burke Warren's Elvis on Velvet vocalism on all the tracks make for a superior listening experience - put this cd on, go out on the porch, and watch the sun go down: "Lazyeye" is a winner.
