“The Breaks” by Robby Overfield

Stretching his soulful Detroit, Michigan roots all the way to the rocky skyline of Durango, Colorado, singer-songwriter, Robby Overfield, offers an exceptional vocal delivery, along with the personal and relatable art of storytelling.

You can find Robby playing regularly in Durango at 6512′, Derailed, the Office, and Embassy.

Back in 2011, Robby and the Trio (Jesse Ogle on bass and Dave Rodriguez on drums) released a 6-track EP entitled The Breaks. The album is available on itunes, cdbaby, and via Robbie’s website. The latest release — Robby Overfield & The Breaks Live At Fort Lewis College — is also available.

Robby and Jesse produced The Breaks, and it was mixed in Durango by Scott Smith of Scooter’s Place. It was basically recorded in one room in one take minus the harmonies. On the album you hear Robbie’s friends and fellow musicians, Ben Scharf from Oregon on keys, Mary-Elizabeth Holby from Montreal on violin, David Rodriguez on drums, and Zack Jones on saxophone. Robby himself is heard on all vocals and guitar.
