Robert Jon & The Wreck is comprised of Robert Jon Burrison (lead vocals and guitar), Andrew Espantman (drums and background vocals), Steve Maggiora (keyboards and background vocals), Henry James (lead guitar and background vocals), and Warren Murrel (bass).

With Robert Jon & The Wreck, the Southern rock resurgence is shining brighter than ever before. This blues and country-infused rock ’n’ roll quintet have consistently delivered soaring solos, boogieing grooves, and arguably perfect tunes since debuting with 2011’s Fire Started. RJTW’s latest LP, Last Light on the Highway, provides yet another heaping helping of stellar Southern Blues Rock.

Being praised as “Classic and fresh at the same time,” by Rock The Best Music, “Raising the bar for the Southern genre,” by Blues Rock Review, and “keeping the history of classic 60’s and 70’s rock alive for newer generations,” by Blues rock legend Joe Bonamassa.

“A classy re-bore of well-trodden southern rock tropes by an Orange County quintet with impeccably realised contemporary commerciality. Born of Allmans and Skynyrd, but box fresh for 2000.”

– Classic Rock

“Robert Jon & The Wreck’s new album is a real humdinger.”

– Planet Rock

“Robert Jon & The Wreck’s most outstanding album release to date.”

– Blues Matters

“There’s the crunch of bluesy guitar riffs, melodies straight out of the Soul book, philosophical lyrics that draw you in and some inspired jamming.”

– Fireworks
