Uncle Rock knows about boo boos, predator dinosaurs, and meltdowns that come from getting too many presents. He has seen mermaids, wizards, and ghost friends. His nieces and nephews the world over have helped him to rediscover the fun of jumping, dancing, shouting and singing along with friends and family about things funny, scary, and ridiculous. Uncle Rock also knows how to rock out with little more than an acoustic guitar and an enthusiastic gaggle of kids. Here We Go! is what happened when the PLAY button was hit on an antique (i.e. from the ''80s) tape machine.
Uncle Rock is singer-songwriter, actor, professional child wrangler, and former stay-at-home dad Robert Burke Warren. Before being dubbed Uncle Rock by his nephew, RBW performed as a bass player in many rock and roll bands, including international garage rock titans The Fleshtones. He also spent a year portraying Buddy Holly in The Buddy Holly Story in London''s West End, and soon thereafter released his critically acclaimed debut CD ...to this day. This led to co-writing with Rosanne Cash on her Grammy-nominated album Rules Of Travel and to the release of his recent sophomore effort Lazyeye.
Uncle Rock''s most rewarding role to date has been as stay-at-home dad to son Jack (now seven). When Jack headed off to kindergarten, Uncle went looking for work. Having developed a taste for the nonstop action that is the trenches and playgrounds of early parenthood, he happily ended up a teacher''s assistant at the rural School Of The New Moon outside Woodstock, NY, where he began bringing in his guitar and playing rock and roll, country and folk songs for the kids. Before long he was singing original tunes for his new friends and Here We Go! was born.
Uncle Rock always liked the immediacy and rawness of field recordings and less-polished Americana and indie music, while at the same time remembering what unbridled joy a pop song could evoke, especially in a kid hungry for a catchy tune. Here We Go! brings all of that to the children''s table, where the occasional mess is not only expected, but encouraged. Drawing inspiration from folks like Maurice Sendak, Shel Silverstein, and Roald Dahl, Uncle Rock likes facing the dragons in the closet.
Onward ho! Here We Go!
And don''t forget to "Say Uncle!"
