Fueled By Love

Robinson Eikenberry - July 8, 2017

The Santa Barbara music community sustained an incalculable loss with the recent passing of Robinson Eikenberry. Robinson was not only one of the most gifted studio engineers I've ever met, but he was also in many ways just as much a guru, therapist, and healer. Robinson was an integral part of so many seminal recordings and a central figure in our music scene. 

 

On a personal note, he engineered, mixed, and co-produced my very first solo CD, A Little Wiser, as well as serving those same rolls and a variety of others on subsequent records. He was very behind the scenes and opted for a life in the studio with those that truly needed the safe space he provided for a deeper, cathartic recording experience, as opposed to pursuing more commercial ventures, which he undoubtedly would have been just as successful at. 

 

One of the songs Robinson and I recorded for my ‘Through The Rain’ record is an instrumental song of mine called ‘Dearly Departed’. I wrote it as a tribute to our loved ones that have passed on. I would never have thought that one day it would take on a whole new meaning now that he is gone.


Listen Here-> Dearly Departed

 

It is with the heaviest of hearts that I bid farewell to Robinson, whom I owe an enormous debt of gratitude for putting my life on the right track musically and spiritually. Thank you Rob Rob, much love, and I'll see you on the other side. -Alastair

Music News From Alastair - May 3, 2017

"It’s been an amazing 7 year journey touring with the Alan Parsons Live Project. I’ve gotten to see much of the world because of this thing called a guitar and a generous man named Alan Parsons. I’d like to thank Alan for taking a chance on a local, freewheeling Blues Rock kid and giving him the opportunity to hold down the guitar chair in his band for so many years. 

 

Much thought and consideration has gone into my decision to leave the band and focus now on my solo career and other musical adventures. My love and appreciation goes out to Alan and his organization for so many great memories. To the fans of the Alan Parsons Project and Alan Parsons’ solo work who packed theaters, arenas, and festivals around the world,...THANK YOU for your love and support!"
