I’ve worked with John Van Eps (“JVE”) since about 1990. My solo work over the years has brought me great satisfaction, most of all, because of the friendships that have resulted, in addition to the actual music. At the start of a long residency in NYC, I began an active period of writing and recording after relocating from Cali. I depend on his musicianship, enthusiasm and humor. I trust his ears and adventurous mind.

Bobby Woods is another zen master, whom I consider an archivist of great music, but also a gifted musician and songwriter . He has recorded a number of eclectic albums under the artist name “Les Deux Love Orchestra” (www.lesdeuxloveorchestra.com). I was introduced to him through Gerry Beckley while working on “Like a Brother” (Beckley Lamm Wilson). Bobby is always keen to make new music, and someday I’d like to do an entire project with him.

Hank Linderman, my West Coast friend and producer, have a deep musical connection, begun while working with BLW. The subsequent RL albums Hank patiently produced are the most satisfying of my career. Always willing to go the the distance in service to the music, his songwriting, his guitar, singing, mixing & fixing, and hospitality made an environment where I thrive, creatively, always.

Hope you enjoy – Robert Lamm
