“On his new CD, You Better Call Someone, Carlson steps out on his own and offers up seven well penned songs that feature superb playing, excellent vocals and clever songwriting that touches down on pop, blues, jazz and folk. The album is rich with musical and vocal magic and features the powerhouse tracks in the progressive slide masterpiece "Pay Hay Okee," the honky tonk of "You Got To Be Shitting Me," the clever "100 Decibel Shoes," and the Latin infused "Toxic Cameo."

Q: Rob, I saw you at the Acton Jazz Cafe March 17 and you were unbelieveably amazing. I did not have a chance to go over and tell you that night, which I regret. Awesome. Ed Loechler
A: Ed, Thank you for the kind words it's appreciated! Let me know if you have a website to check out your tunes. I love checking out new talent. Working on TV and Film submissions for plugger in TX.
