Robert Morton is a life-long singer song writer heavily influenced by music of the 70's, 80's, 90's and the lessons of life. His style is most often associated with James Taylor, Jackson Browne and Neil Young. A guitar player since childhood, Robert always played what he felt, though he did play some covers - everyone likes to hear what they know.
Robert pursued a corporate life, but in his late thirties with a full experience of life's challenges and heartaches, decided to take a new path. At age 40 he quit work and rode his motorcycle 15,000 miles along the twisted back roads that surround the 4 borders of the US. The adventure was an incredible journey and experience for Robert. During the trip, he met and married the woman who to this day fills every part of his life with unconditional love.
Robert rejoined the corporate world, but was downsized in 2009 when the financial crisis came upon us all. As they say, when one door closes another one opens. With the encouragement of his wife, Robert picked up his guitar, pulled out some of his favorite lyrics and melodies, wrote a few more and jumped into recording his first album, Twisted Road.
"Playing and singing music that comes from inside is a great joy for me. Recording Twisted Road has been one of my most fulfilling experiences. I hope you will enjoy my music and support my effort - please listen, buy it if you like it and tell all your friends about it. With enough support, I will soon be recording my second album and sharing it with you, my family, friends and fans." - Robert Morton
