The Next Generational Isley
Opens for the Legendary Isley Brothers at BayFest 2013
Nashville, Tenn.-International Recording Artist K-Rob will be one of several artists opening for his uncles the Isley Brothers at BayFest 2013, the largest Music Festival in Alabama.
As the nephew of Rudolph Isley of the legendary Isley Brothers, Urban/R&B Artist K-Rob continues to garner new fans and support for his energetic, edgy and soulful sound. This will be K-Rob’s third year performing at BayFest in Mobile. The singer/songwriter will perform many familiar hits, in addition to his music from his freshman CD and his most recent EP featuring, “So Addictive.”
“My ambition has always been to ultimately create a new joint that would connect with music lovers around the world,” K-Rob said. “I especially look forward to being one of the opening acts for my uncles, the Isley Brothers, and I can’t wait to share my music with the wonderful and supportive audience in Mobile.”
K-Rob is also pleased to announce the video debut of his single,” So Addictive,” which was directed and produced by Ron White of Atlanta, Ga. White is also a native of Mobile.
K-Rob emerged on the music scene in 2004 and introduced his first, self-entitled CD, “K-Rob,” which garnered placement on Pandora, Jango.com, INDIE 104 and IRADIOLA. The “raves” continued with airplay on major FM radio stations such as 92.1, WQQK, Nashville, Tenn., Power 94.3, WJTT, Chattanooga, Tenn.; and the nationally syndicated, The Michael Baisden Show, and various radio stations throughout the U.K., France and Japan.
K-Rob’s first CD features songs such as “2Nite,” “Again (Like the First Time),” a Stevie Wonder rendition, “Golden Lady” and the sensual club-banger, “The Velvet Room.” He remains passionate about his work that’s 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. Vocally, K-Rob’s falsetto notes remind you of a soft and sexy romance.
"So Addictive" was penned by a talented, up and coming singer/songwriter based out of Atlanta, LOK3Y, whose forte' is writing deeply soulful records with "tinges" of gospel, R&B and international "feels." “The entire making of “So Addictive” was a family affair,” K-Rob said. Like his first project, K-Rob continued the prolific partnership with long time friend and super producer, Angelo “Lo” Ray, Father of Angelo Ray, Jr. aka LOK3Y. “Angelo and I wanted to continue “moving the needle” with hot records that would also resonate internationally.
Our creative success continues to be possible with our great team work and knowledge of one another,” K-Rob said. Angelo’s production credits include working with chart topping artists such as:
Kevon Edmonds, “24/7-"Gold status, ” The House The Dog Built,” performed by JiBri and co-produced by the legendary, Nile Rodgers; Productions featuring David Banner & JadaKiss; Adina Howard “Nasty Grind,” Jade’s “Mind, Body & Soul”-Gold status.
K-Rob has received great reviews about his music and performances within the U.S. and internationally.
