Chris Robinson

Former Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson has announced a new band and a tour that will include performances of songs from the Black Crowes catalog. The band – dubbed As the Crow Flies – includes guitarist Audley Freed, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, and bassist Andy Hess, all from Robinson’s days in the Black Crowes. The group is rounded out by drummer Tony Leone and guitarist Marcus King, a Greenville, S.C.-based blues-rock phenom profiled previously by Gibson in our “30 Under 30” series.

"Spring will be sprung and the songs will be sung," said Robinson, in a prepared statement. "This crow will fly high with old friends and new ... I can't wait to hit the stage with some rock 'n' roll for the ages. It's been five years since I've had the privilege of singing these songs, and with Audley, Marcus, Andy, Adam and Tony onboard, a soulful, rockin', funky good time is guaranteed."

The tour kicks off April 17 in Port Chester, New York. You can check out the full schedule below.
