Forget Everything, but Forget Nothing… That’s the philosophy
Indie-folk rock /Americana artist, singer, songwriter Robin Berg of the
band Callison Nash has adopted to achieve a myriad of accomplishments in
his action packed life and that’s what he brings to his anxiously
anticipated EP, Forget Everything.
This new chapter for consummate adventurer, Robin Berg, is actually a
full-circle return to a flourishing music career that he admits he just
wasn’t ready for when he began writing and performing live, years ago.
“You should constantly explore the world. I have thrown myself at a
bunch of different things and mastered most them,” says the man who
travels the world in search of new adventures. “ But it is singing and
songwriting that has always been my greatest passion,” says Berg, who
currently lives in Southern California.
Acting as Vin Diesel’s stunt double in XXX, fending off sharks and
alligators, skysurfing, escaping bear attacks, and running his own TV
production company featuring over 400 episodes, is just not enough for
this self-described adrenalin junkie anymore. In early 2012 Robin Berg
was finally able to channel that passion into his life-long love of
singing and songwriting. “Everything I do has brought me to this moment
and definably made my songs better for it. I believe it is all about
the song and I really want to move people with my words.”
Move people is exactly what he does. The singer/ songwriter has
attracted the ears of some of the industry’s most discriminating music
makers, Grammy award-winning producer/ engineer, John Jaszcz, and former
major record label executive/producer Dick Williams, They heard about
Robin through a mutual friend and immediately wanted to be part of
it. “Robin Berg is someone who has lived the experience he writes
about, he’s not a wannabe act living in a fantasy world,” says Williams.
“His extensive knowledge of film and music, combined with exceptional
songwriting instincts, gives him a distinct advantage.”
A songwriter by nature, with rock n’ roll fire in his veins, Robin Berg
has created a sound that’s infectious. Many will agree; his intimate
lyrics, coupled with lush vocals and melodies that linger, are what set
this indie-rocker apart.
Quote from Robin’s Producer/ Engineer John Jaszcz:
“Callison Nash singer songwriter Robin Berg is a true artist, carrying
meaningful lyrics on melodies that touch the soul. His classic
folk-rock songs breathe inspiration and passion.” – John Jaszcz,
producer/engineer: Collective Soul, Kree Woods, Bootsy Collins, George
