WHO: Warner Bros. Recording Artist, ROBERT RANDOLPH & THE FAMILY BAND

“Known as one of the most talented pedal steel players in rock history,” observes the Associated Press, and notorious for his jubilant, roof-raising live shows, Randolph has now made the leap from being a great performing artist to being a great recording artist on “Colorblind.” “We’re fortunate to be good musicians,” he says, “and we were able to channel into that foundation during the collaboration process, and grow as songwriters.”

WHERE: LIVE ON FOX!

WHEN: MARCH 2nd, 2007 @ 8PM (ET/PT)

The Album: “Colorblind,” the follow-up to Randolph’s 2003 Grammy-nominated debut on Warner Bros. Records, “Unclassified,” is a potent mix of rock, R&B, country, blues, and gospel that Randolph says was inspired by repeated listenings of albums by Sly Stone, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Stevie Wonder. It ranges from the infectious funk-stomp of “Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong With That” to a blistering version of the Byrds’ “Jesus Is Just Alright With Me” (featuring Randolph’s friend and mentor Eric Clapton) to such timeless ballads as “Stronger,” a duet with Leela James that was written with Steve McEwan (Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney).
