Lullabies from the Heart seeks to bring inner strength to people with a breathtaking musical experience. When choosing songs for the album, we sought songs that touch people’s hearts and bring them love and comfort in a way that only music can.
Robert chose Tears in Heaven for Lullabies from the Heart, because the song speaks to the universal, human experience of loss. Eric Clapton wrote Tears in Heaven in the early ’90s after a tragic accident that killed his infant son, Conor. Clapton poured his emotions into the music and lyrics, and Robert has done the same with his vocals.
Robert said, “We have to let go and still continue to love those we have lost. We cry now, but there will be no more tears in heaven.”
Lev Productions spent the afternoon with Robert Robinson in MasterMix studio at the Institute of Production and Recording in Minneapolis, MN recording the first set of tracks for Robert’s new album Lullabies from the Heart. This album hopes to show a softer side of Robert Robinson, allowing him to use his voice to lull his fans. Although our team of professionals have been working on the music for more than a month, the music has finally come to life with the voice of “God’s canary” himself.
The dynamic duo that brought you Robert’s Inspiration album is back with a musical vengeance. Instructor at IPR and well known producer Scott “Scooter” Nelson says he is happy to be working with Robert again, and remembers the first time they worked together in the studio fondly. “I’m serious,” said Nelson in the studio. “When I first recorded Robert, I had to go ask Tom Tucker for help because I was scared Robert was going to break my microphone!”
But Lullabies From the Heart is bringing out a whole new dynamic of Robert’s powerful voice. Lead sound engineer at Green River Recording and student at IPR in Minneapolis, Chris Tianen, describes Robert’s vocals as “the perfect mixture of tension and release.” Chris, who studies under Scooter, assisted in the studio and will be working on the album with Lev Productions in the coming months.
The moments in the studio were pure magic. They brought a new vigor to the team. We cannot wait to get back in the studio later this month.
