all the time: "What's J. Robbins up to?" After the demise of his much-loved Burning Airlines, J. found himself married, constantly booked as recording engineer/producer, and a dog owner, in no particular order of importance. Just when you thought one man couldn't wring any more hours out of a day, J. must have perfected travel at near-light-speed, effectively warping timespace enough to create time for writing songs and eating (in that order of importance).
And where did he look for bandmates? First, in his house: wife Janet Morgan contributes bass and singing duties, as well as an implacable sense of purpose, to the operation. And not far outside their Baltimore backyard, Darren Zentek, late of Oswego and Kerosene 454 (and one of my personal all-time favorite drummers; I could honestly listen to Darren play a solo for 2 hours straight if he would humor me), was looking for love. With Channels he found it.
