10 MP3 Songs
POP: Folky Pop, ROCK: Acoustic
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 who have shared the stage 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.
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.
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 ICE CREAM & OTHER FLAVORS, which was their 2nd CD on their very own Monkey C Monkey D label. (There were two earlier CDs released by Virgin Records in Europe.)
What the press says about ICE CREAM & OTHER FLAVORS:
Teek (Belgium): "...material that stands up to the best of Loudon Wainwright...Every good radio station should play BBG..."
Oor Magazine (Netherlands): "Good news for Bright Blue Gorilla fans... singer/songwriters par excellence... the entire album holds together... It is high time that the larger public took this gifted couple to heart."
[Three-Star Rating = highly recommended]
"...tuneful, straightforward acoustic modern folk... voices blending with a naturalness that only comes from years of singing together... thoughtful... haunting tunes."
Westzeit (Germany): "...the writing has matured while staying consistent with the high standard that the first album set ...testimony to the band's willingness to expand the realm of their music... an exceptional CD."
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.
