No Comments Latest Blues News Music

Bob MaloneL.A. based keyboardist, singer, songwriter Bob Malone has toured the world for two decades as a solo artist, as well as played keyboards in rock legend John Fogerty’s band since 2011, His latest release, Mojo Deluxe, on Delta Moon Records delivers an even-dozen tracks featuring the wide-breadth of Malone’s musical knowledge and includes exciting originals, as well as cool covers of songs by Ray Charles (“Hard Times”) and Muddy Waters (“She Moves Me”). The sound is a perfect gumbo of dirty blues, classic rock & roll and New Orleans piano pyrotechnics. It’s where Bob Malone stomps his foot on a miked-up cigar box, rips on a funky old upright piano and a vintage Wurlitzer and sings fearlessly of life at the halfway point. Mojo Deluxe is loaded with deep grooves, swamp rock, gospel-drenched ballads and plenty of nasty slide guitar. The all-star band backing him on the new CD includes harmonica player Stan Behrens (WAR), bassist Tim Lefebvre (Tedeschi-Trucks Band), drummer Mike Baird (Journey, Bob Dylan, Joe Cocker), producer/guitarist Bob DeMarco and drummer Kenny Aronoff, Malone’s Fogerty bandmate. The album was recorded at several studios in the Los Angeles area, as well as in New York City.

Bob Malone’s unique hybrid of rock, blues and New Orleans R&B, is delivered with high-energy piano virtuosity and a voice all his own. Mojo Deluxe is the eighth solo album for Malone.

Born and raised in New Jersey, he has lived in New York City, New Orleans and Boston, and is currently based in Los Angeles. Playing an average of 100 tour dates a year, he has shared stages with Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Jimmy Buffett, Rickie Lee Jones, The Neville Brothers, Rev. Al Green, Dr. John and many others. As a solo artist, Bob tours the US, UK, Europe and Australia extensively.
