Album Notes
About Rob Lytle
After a nearly 14-year break from performing, Rob has experienced a whirlwind musical rebirth over the past four years with a busy touring schedule, an appearance as a finalist in the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival “New Folk” competition, and juried showcase appearances at major industry events.

His 2011 CD -- You. Must. Stop. -- reached the top 25 for folk and roots radio in both Europe and the US and was praised by Maverick Magazine as “one of those all-too-rare albums where every track is a standout.”

This latest album reunites the producer (and most of the musicians) from that effort and features a new diverse batch of melodic and compelling songs.

• Produced by: Thomm Jutz
• Drums/Perc: Lynn Williams - (Delbert McClinton, Phil Keaggy, Kinky Friedman, Pierce Pettis, etc.)
• Bass: Mark Fain - (Ricky Skaggs, Dixie Chicks, Dwight Yoakam, Alison Krauss,Dolly Parton, etc.)
• Piano/Organ/Wurlitzer - Barry Walsh (Roy Orbison, Waylon Jennings, The Box Tops, Gretchen Peters, etc.)
• Guitars - Thomm Jutz (Nanci Griffith, Dana Cooper, Amy Speace, Karyn Oliver, etc.)
• Pedal Steel Guitar - Terry Crisp (Marty Stuart, Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, etc.)
• Harmony Vocals - Britt Savage (Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, Natalie Cole, Peter Wolf, Jon Bon Jovi, etc.
