Teaming up with Florida native producer brandon*, Rob Milton is taking another step in his journey with his appropriately titled third EP, Developing. The six-track offering delves straight in with its Jacque Hammond-assisted soulful opener, “Around,” which spins off of a Lauryn Hill Unplugged 2.0 gem. After a magical call and response duet with Hammond, Milton returns to the inspiring message that resonated through his two 2012 releases on “Live Up” and details his early morning sentiments as he prepares to embark on what could easily become a daunting day. Going on to an untitled letter to a future love, a Lewis Taylor-inspired Brian Wilson remake and a bright interlude, Milton serves up an authentic look into his world and caps it off with the rousing guitar-driven title track. “Life is the greatest teacher and I’ll never know if I don’t reach,” he proclaims. Milton and brandon* have developed an organic combination of jazz, hip hop and gospel elements that they are certain that music lovers will appreciate.

About Rob Milton
Rob Milton is a singer/songwriter, born and raised between New Jersey and Virginia. With great pleasure and the help of producer Roman Lee Norfleet, one half of Los Angeles duo Black Fantastic, Rob Milton started off the year 2012 by presenting the world with his first piece of work, The Love Today EP. Full of soulful samples and inspiring lyrical content, this small collection of songs managed to reach an audience ranging from New York to London. Songs from The Love Today EP, including “Off Key” featuring J. Caldwell, have been featured on multiple blogs, online radio mixes as well as Detroit’s WDET 101.9 FM Soul Sunday playlist. Milton was also featured on the track “Lazy” on Jacque Hammond’s debut project, Lazy Love.
Following up in September of 2012 with The Shine Tomorrow EP, Milton continued to present the perfect introduction to his raw inspirational soul sound. Lauded by Soulbounce.com, WhenGiantsMeet.com, and IMadeInTruth.com, the Shine Tomorrow EP included the hit single “Shine” which currently remains in rotation on Look Up Radio and Morgan Rhodes’ Sunday morning broadcast on 90.7 FM KPFK in Los Angeles, California.
