Description

HeavyDrunk is headed up by Rob Robinson, a veteran songwriter, musician and artist who has created the smoking nine piece blues/R&B, rock-tinged band HeavyDrunk. With a horn section to die for, pulsating keyboards, soaring guitar runs, soulful background singers, and Rob's songwriting and vocal expertise the infectious, swampy groves of the first single “If I Loved You Hard Enough” draws you in as surely as a spider’s web into this new musical experience. Rob is also owner of the infamous and historic Puckett's Grocery of Leiper's Fork, TN just outside of Nashville where you’ll find excellent BBQ and one of the best live music venues in middle Tennessee!

“If I Loved You Hard Enough” available 8/30 at iTunes & Spotify. Holywater album available 10/4!


Renee Armand

Renee began her professional career at seventeen performing with John Handy’s fusion band in San Francisco. By the age of twenty she was discovered by Tony Bennett, mentored by Carmen McRea, and on the road with Woody Herman and Harry James as their last band singer. Her gift for live performance has taken her to every major city in the United State, Europe, Japan and Australia, on stages from a chicken-wire bar in Roswell, New Mexico, to Madison Square Garden, Albert Hall, The Budokan, and the Sydney Opera House.

She’s the voice of Oscar-winning soundtracks (“The Morning After” from The Poseidon Adventure), television themes, and commercials (Rice A Roni, Toyota) and has sung on albums with Michael Jackson, Linda Rondstadt, Little Feat, John Denver and Emmylou Harris.

Armand has written, sung and collaborated with many, including Hoyt Axton (“Boney Fingers,” her first country hit), and is the writer of Michael Jackson’s “One Day In Your Life.” Her own albums include “The RainBook” on A&M, “In Time” on RCA, and “The Coyote Sisters” on Motown, and “Listen.”
