For the last 26 years, Chuck Robertson has been the lead singer of the ska-punk-dixie-reggae band the Mad Caddies. Growing up in a small, rural community on the central coast of California, deep in the heart of Cowboy Wine country, there wasn’t a lot going on around. Following in the footsteps of their idols, Robertson and his bandmates gathered in garages, barns, and anywhere else they could find to try their hand at making music together.
When the pandemic started, Robertson got busy writing and recording new music, but recognized it had a different feel than what the Mad Caddies are known for, so he started a new project called Chuck Robertson and Friends. Their debut album, All Out Of Dreams, will be available July 9 through Tecolote.
New Noise are proud to premiere the video for “Mountain Flower” below:
On the track’s release, Robertson states:
“‘Mountain Flower’ is a sweet, simple love song straight from the heart. The song touches on three themes: physical beauty and attraction, the beauty of a spiritual and emotional connection through love, and finally, the raw beauty of our local landscape and the natural world.”
“Mountain Flower” follows the group’s first single, “Under Me.” All Mad Caddies fans out there will be happy to hear they will back on tour soon, along with live dates for Chuck Robertson and Friends.
To celebrate this milestone, preorder the album, and get the word out about this new chapter of music, Robertson has created a Kickstarter project kicking off June 7. This limited-time offering includes rewards like vinyl, enamel pins, art prints, livestreams, exclusive tracks, songwriting clinics, and so much more that will only be available via the Kickstarter project here.
