Robert Lusson started as a folk singer and was signed to his first recording contract with the duo Lusson & Morrisette. He never forgot those basic tenets of the importance of words and melody. His song, Let's Call it a Day, was featured in the album "Miller Highlife's Oregon's Best" with his band "The Beevers". As a member of the band "The Cripples", Robert had three of his songs in the movie "Cruising" starring Al Pacino, and the soundtrack from the album. In 1989, Robert wrote the tune "Free James Brown", for Mr. Brown who was in prison for rampaging through three states in a celebrated car chase. Mr. Brown heard the song, endorsed it, and as a result it was featured on the Arsenio Hall show, picked up by the KABC network and broadcast around the world. Robert never commercially released the tune because as he said " we did not want to make any money off the bones of someone's misfortune". Robert was the primary songwriter and guitar player in "The Balding Bros", another local fan fave best known for it's song "I Like The Big Girls". Robert's next act "The Live Nude Girls" was a local favorite for several years in the Los Angeles marketplace performing regularly at venues like The Troubadour, The Roxy and The China Club. They also received regular airplay on KROQ. The act released one album before disbanding. His next album "Sidnee" was recorded soon after but was never released as the record company went bankrupt; Robert's comment: "Welcome to the Music Business." Robert quit playing for almost ten years and devoted himself to raising his two sons. Robert's latest effort, The Social Beat, is based upon the idea of the songwriter as an objective reporter, a "just the facts Maam" approach that endeavors to chronicle the social, political, economic, and up close and personal stories of our time without prejudice or judgment. It combines all the elements of his many styles and can be regarded as beat generation Jewish Latin folk jazz mariachi music with a Bob Dylan attitude. Social Beat Music is built on local and global rhythms and speaks to the commonality of the human experience, everyman music, and everywoman song.
