Robert Burke Warren is a writer, performer, teacher, and musician. His 2016 debut novel, Perfectly Broken, is out now. He’s the music editor for the essay site The Weeklings, he’s ghost-written for Gregg Allman and his liner notes appear on the award-winning CD Live at Caffe Lena. He’s written for Salon, Paste, Texas Music, Brooklyn Parent, The Woodstock Times, The Rumpus, The Good Men Project, The Bitter Southerner, Chronogram, the Da Capo anthology The Show I ‘ll Never Forget and Rolling Stone Press’ Trouble Girls. His songs appear on albums by Rosanne Cash and rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson, and The Roots used his tune “The Elephant In the Room” as John McCain’s entrance theme on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. One upon a time, he performed the lead in the West End musical Buddy: the Buddy Holly Story. Prior to that he traveled the world as a bass player. You can find his songs – as RBW and as Uncle Rock – on cdbaby.com, Spotify, iTunes and rogue internet sites.
