11 MP3 Songs
POP: Quirky, FOLK: Folk Pop
Bright Blue Gorilla is Robyn Rosenkrantz and Michael Glover - from Los Angeles (though they're usually on the road). They're musicians, actors, and filmmakers.
BBG just wrote & directed their first full-length comedy film, Sister Sarah's Sky. It's an official selection of the Brussels International Film Festival. (Watch the movie trailer at their site!) BBG heads to Europe in September, 2005, in support of Sister Sarah's Sky and their new CD. They'll also be performing songs from MANTRA FOR THE AMERICAN JUNGLE - which was the 3rd CD released on their very own label, Monkey C Monkey D. (There were two prior releases on Virgin Records, Europe.) By the way, the MANTRA songs, Sister Sarah's Sky and Greed are used in the movie, Sister Sarah's Sky. Also, the TV show, Dawson's Creek, used the BBG song, Feel the Movement.
You can catch BBG acting and singing 4 songs in the new Matthew Broderick & Alec Baldwin film, The Last Shot. (Touchstone Pictures.) It's out now on DVD so buy it on eBay or head to your local video rental place.
The Gorillas have performed with Suzanne Vega, Luka Bloom, Richard Thompson, Loudon Wainwright, A.J. Croce, Ian Matthews, Mary Black, Fish, Townes Van Zandt, and many other fine artists.
Los Angeles Times: "Bright Blue Gorilla is genuinely wry and entertaining."
Orange Country Register: "Best live act of the year!"
FM East Fan (Japan): "Songwriting of the highest caliber..."
OOR Magazine (Holland): "Rosenkrantz & Glover are true originals..."
Here's some recent BBG happenings:
--> Watch for Michael playing harmonica in the new Dairy Queen TV ad.
--> In the film, A Mighty Wind, watch for Robyn during the concert finale.
--> BBG songs can be heard in three different episodes of the TV show The Osbournes - Season 3.
--> In the film, It's All About Love, by Danish Director, Thomas Vinterberg, Robyn and Michael's voices replace several of the actors voices. (The actors in question were from Europe and had accents that the director didn't think sounded American enough.)
--> On the TV show, Enterprise, Michael is an alien - a "Tranon" to be exact.
--> On the TV show, The O.C., Michael played "a parole officer who looks like Lou Reed."
--> On the TV show, Boston Legal, Michael played the judge in the Michael Jackson trial who quits the case to become a Phil Spector look-alike. (No kidding.)
--> You can see the gorillas in TV commercials for Dairy Queen, Stanley Tools, the Academy Awards, Nokia phones, Disney Channel, and the German sit-com Alles Atze.
--> Robyn's India Photos appear in the coffee table book, Photo Crafts, published by Lark Books.
--> Their voice characterizations are on Microsoft's CD ROM game, Mech Warrior IV, and on various Disney Channel promos, commercials, etc.
It all started in 1990, when Robyn & Michael quit their L.A. jobs, sold everything they owned except their guitars, and bought one-way tickets to Europe. They've been travelling the world ever since.
