I remember meeting and interviewing Mr. Fred Shuttlesworth in Birmingham, Alabama in 1998. My photographer Stephanie Brooks and I were in total awe. He left the City of Mobile as a mechanic and truck driver many years ago for the City of Birmingham.  He would later become an iconic figure during the Civil Rights movement, but wasn't truly appreciated until the latter years. The "lessons learned" and the sacrifices he made during that time made it possible for me and so many others. We're standing on some "giant shoulders" and we have Fred Shuttlesworth to thank for "paving the way".

The “raves” continue with current airplay on major FM radio stations such as 92.1, WQQK, Nashville, Tenn., Power 94.3, WJTT, Chattanooga, Tenn; and The Michael Baisden Show. As the nephew of Rudolph Isley of the great Isley Brothers, K-Rob continues to garner new fans and support for his energetic, edgy and soulful album, which features songs such as “2Nite,” “Again, Like the First Time,” “Golden Lady” and the retro club-banger, “Lovers.” He’s also known for putting on a great show for his audience. 
K-Rob, a native of Cincinnati, Ohio and now a resident of Nashville, Tenn., remains passionate and focused on his work, which is inspired by the Isley Brothers, Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, Earth, Wind and Fire, and Marvin Gaye. His vocal style has been compared to Howard Hewitt, Joe and Maxwell. K-Rob is grateful for his musical gift and the uncles who have inspired him to do everything with much determination, hard work and style. “I love music, and the legacy that my uncles have given me,” K-Rob said. My goal is to continue writing and performing expressive lyrics that will be filled with love, romance and fun.

walton-krobK-Rob is extremely family-oriented and enjoys making those he loves happy. He has performed for numerous non-profit agencies in support of women, children and families in need. His mission in life is to share his musical talent and make a difference in the lives of others. 
He recently made a stop along the Gulf Coast and allowed his new fans an opportunity to sample his music in an exclusive listening party. Varion Walton was just one of several members in the entertainment news industry who left the gathering pleasantly satisfied. Everyone agrees his vocals on his new CD are smooth, but nothing quite compares to the added attraction of listening to this “rising star” sing a capella. K-Rob, the “next generational Isley” ready and prepared to leave his own mark in the musical world of R&B.
