From Austin to Muscle Shoals, singer-songwriter Robert Cline Jr. tends to make a good impression with everyone he meets. He made such a good impression on New Orleans groove rockers The Subdudes that the band helped nurture his musical ambitions. In fact, John Magnie of The Subdudes acted as producer for Cline’s debut album, “All the Right Reasons.” This collection of countrified folk demonstrated Cline’s knack for crafting poignant songs highlighted by lyrical and instrumental purity.
After meeting Muscle Shoals session legends The Swampers at SXSW, Cline relocated to Muscle Shoals and began penning the tracks that would become his latest release, “American Mojo.” With this album, Cline has ventured more into the modern honky-tonk world. “American Mojo” is filled with wailing pedal steel, warm electric piano and smooth vocal work. The most attractive aspect of this album, however, is Cline’s poetic musical translations of life his lyrics bring to the mix.
