Since starting his musical career in 1967 by founding and fronting Roomful of Blues, Duke Robillard has been at the forefront of blues, swing and classic R&B for over 40 years – earning him legendary status and two Grammy nominations while influencing and inspiring countless legions of musicians and fans worldwide.

Produced by Robillard and recorded at Lakewest Recording and Duke’s Mood Room, Ear Worms features Duke’s long-time band: Bruce Bears (piano, Hammond organ); Brad Hallen (acoustic and electric bass); and Mark Teixeira (drums). Joining them on the sessions are a host of special guest vocalists: Chris Cote, Sunny Crownover, Mark Cutler, Julie Grant, Dave Howard and Klem Klimek.

Ear Worms was conceived as an album of songs that I heard and was attracted to growing up,” says Robillard. “They are not of one particular genre or style, but rather songs I heard in my teens, with the exception of a few songs which I threw into the mix to round out the overall album vibe; sounds that stuck in my head, in many cases before I knew what the blues was. I guess you could call them ‘ear worms’. It can be a song you can’t get out of your head because you love it so much, or it can also be a mundane piece of drivel that haunts you like a bad dream. Hopefully, if these songs become ear worms for you, they will be good ones!”
