Band Series, Part 2 ~ Introducing David Archuleta’s Band

Posted by bebereader on Saturday, May 7, 2011

Percussionist: Steven J. Robinson

When I began to research percussionist/actor/singer/songwriter and producer, Steven J. Robinson, I found very little on the web. But I noticed that he’s active on Twitter where he’s very popular with the fans. I took a leap and decided to tweet him for some help. It soon became apparent why he’s so popular; he’s a delightful guy, very easy to talk to and really friendly. Bursting with excitement, he graciously answered all my questions and then some, without hesitation. 😀

Born in 1989 in Los Angeles, California, Steven Robinson comes from a family of performers. His Mom and Dad were singers and ministers in the Pentecostal church. It was only a matter of time before Steven set his sights on a similar career.

How did you become interested in music and particularly percussion?

“Drums was the very first thing that intrigued me. I was very small-around the age of 2-in church. I didn’t know anything about drumming, or what it’s main purpose was in a musical setting. All I remember is that the sound and physical nature of the instrument grabbed my attention, and never let go! The more I got into drums as time went on, the more I got into music.

Funny story-because I was so deeply rooted in church, and gospel music, my first time hearing secular music was in 3rd grade. The kids at school would bring their CD’s. Around that time, Britney Spears, NSync, Christina Aguilera, 98 Degrees, and Spice Girls were HUGE. I knew the sound wasn’t gospel, but I liked it! It was simpler, and most of the time, less dramatic. ha ha It was a nice change. But now I incorporate my gospel roots into my pop/r&b gigs, and people love it. :)”

According to his bio, Steven started playing drums professionally as early as junior high school!

When did you start playing professionally and getting gigs?

“In my sophomore year of high school, I was asked to play behind Marie Wise-Hawkins, a local country singer. I played with her for a year or so, doing local gigs and demo recordings. From her, I went on to playing in a rock band called NuLvL.“

After high school, he won a music scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston. While in Boston, he auditioned at a local theater and began to get interested in every aspect of the entertainment industry including acting. He also worked in the studio with Japanese artist Sylvia Lynn and singer/songwriter Tori Salisbury. He has graced the stage musically and theatrically, in various productions from one coast to the other.  His artistry grows from writing, recording and performing his own material.

Were you in a band in college?

“During college, I played in an R&B band called “Aftershock”. We were a 20-piece band! This was my first experience playing r&b in a huge setting. I learned so much! From this opportunity, I was given my first semi high profile gig, with Universal Motown’s Devin Johnson. Devin sang and played keyboards in Aftershock. During these playing experiences, a good buddy of mine named Andre Brown shaped and molded the raw talent inside of me. Andre taught me how to play to a click track (much different than practicing to cd’s!), and showed me different ways to approach r&b drumming. I thank God for having Andre placed in my life.”

Have you had prior band experience?

“While in LA, I’ve been on the hustle as a drummer and an actor, looking for the next great opportunity. I played for a number of up and coming acts before landing the gig with David. At the end of the day, it’s all about networking, and building relationships with fellow entertainers. That’s how I got the recommendation for David’s new band. :)”

Which brings us to this week’s Twitter parties. Enthusiastic fans asked Steven all kinds of cool questions to which he so generously obliged. 😉 Names of tweeters have been removed to protect our innocence. LOL.  Steven’s replies are in italics.

How did U come about joining @DavidArchie’s band? Did U know about him before joining his band?
His last drummer was an acquaintance of mine…he called me in to audition.

How’s the music coming along?
The music is great! Cant wait to get back to work!

Luv new vibe- David Archuleta’s band with your bongos adds new flavor & vibe.
Awesome! That was the plan!

Who are some of your favorite gospel artists?
GREAT question-Hezekiah Walker, Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, John P. Kee, Doobie Powell, Tye Tribbett, Skillet, the list goes on!

What’s David doing today?
Not sure….lol check his tweets

You are so sweet. ‘family’ .. you have such a positive, sunny attitude..I love that. no wonder David chose you.
Thank you so very much! 🙂

Are we getting any closer to Tour news???
Everyday that passes gets closer to news. 🙂

Any more ‘sexy acoustic sets’ in the works? Loved the last one!!
Oh yeah! Much more sexy acousticness in the works!

“Much more sexy acousticness in the works!” Lord have Mercy on us all. Imma start prayin now.
Talk to the Lord!! Lol

How do you transport those big drums?
A car, and lots of patience lol

*cough* going to Asia soon? *cough*COUGH*
ha ha ha dont know yet…hopefully!

Morning! Do u guys rehearse in a set studio or do u pack up ur drums each day & travel around?
We’re in a set studio.

Any particular reason for choosing drums as your instrument? Do you have a favorite drummer?
I was chosen by God to play drums. 🙂 For whatever reason! Fav drummers-brook alexander, teddy campbell, aaron spears

Will david’s tour start in June!?
June? Who said that?

Have u ever heard @davidarchie sing some Prince?
We’re trying to convince him actually! #iloveprince

I have all the tamales you need. just need tour dates and you can have them all 😛

You skipped over my tweet about “full set at Myrtle Beach”??? but I’ll forgive you this time! LOL
Oh Im sorry!!! Yes full set!!

ha ha ha!

oh yeah! My man, Steven, is a clever dude! Not gonna get one over on him! But good try! haha ♥ you guys 🙂

Good Place Good Place Good Place (trying subliminal mind control) Good Place Good Place Good Place
ha ha ha!

Hi! Question, don’t know if it’s been answered… Whose brilliant idea was it to mash up Gotta Get Thru This & Msg in a Bottle?!
All collaborative my friend 🙂

Thanks 4the twitter party & info about the Cajon, my music shop closed in the neighborhood 😦 Boo hope we didn’t overwhelm U 🙂
Not at all! I throw the twitter parties cause yall are awesome!

We do know for sure that there is a summer tour, right?
Not confirmed yet.

Hmmm….boss man just called me. Indonesia. 🙂

Call me ignorant but do you mean David by “boss man”? Don’t want to assume!
Yep. That’s David!

Tell @DavidArchie that we love when he adds lots of na na na’s, yeah yeahs and humming in his songs! 🙂
He knows, that’s why he does it! Ha ha

Yeah, that @DavidArchie acts so innocent, but he KNOWS what he’s doin’! haha
Agreed!!!

Uh oh. With that last reply, I think we’re headed for Trouble with a capital T.

    Great article, BB…so informative on a great guy! I think Steven is the perfect fit for David’s band. It would be so much fun to watch them “jammin” during their practice. Can’t wait to see the whole band play together. Even though he won’t be touring here yet, I’m excited for his touring in Indonesia and hope that soon after he’ll be touring here in the states. “fingers crossed”!!!

  2. Thanks, Bebe, you’re becoming quite the investigative reporter. This series is making me over the top ODD. His new band-family is going to be special. They won’t need flashing lights & half naked bodies cause the music and the VOICE will blow everyone away.

    Yah for Filipino fans! You guys are the best and glad DA will be feeding your devotion & undying support. Also glad things finally worked out for the Indonesian fans. Soooooo excited for Asian fans!

    Bebe: Great Article! It looks like David has chosen to surround himself with some very talented people. And I like the fact that he does twitter parties and may tease a little but isn’t giving out anything concrete that David hasn’t approved. It should be up to David when info is released. Seems like a smart and friendly guy. (Good choice, David)

    “Whose brilliant idea was it to mash up Gotta Get Thru This & Msg in a Bottle?!

    Steven is a wonderful addition to David’s new adventure in music.Choosing carefully those musicians that best reflect his direction is the foundation David told us about in his blog. Steven is grounded in family and music, both traits that fit with what David is all about.

    I looked up Steven on youtube. It is a pleasure to see him play in a laid back style that shows he knows not to overpower the rest of the musicians. Here he is with a fusion jazz group:

    I subscribed to his channel in hopes of more rehearsal videos 😉

    Bebe your interview was fun and informative. I had asked you about requesting a phone interview, but twitter gave an equally interesting feel on what Steven is all about. Your questions and comments to him were those we all have rolling around in our minds to ask. Well done!

    Got to have a screen cap right? I love how his face is on the big screen to compliment the full body shot of him singing.

    I agree with everyone here that Steven has the right combination of traits that suits David, is even close to him in age and while he teases us with info, does not reveal anything that he should not.

    Bebe; Thank you for this post. It’s been enjoyable learning about David’s band members. Steven is very talented and seems like such a nice guy. Love that each band member’s talent & musical background is bringing something special to compliment David. I didn’t know much about his previous bands, but this band appears to be quite versatile, allowing David to explore different sounds, arrangements and maybe even to try songs outside his comfort zone. I’m getting shaky thinking about the possibilities!

    How awesome was it to see David’s name trending worldwide! So happy for the Indonesian and Filipino fans … can’t wait for more US dates as well!

His addition of the bongos (for lack of another name)to David’s performance at the IC event was refreshing! I love the new musical ‘vibe’ already! David is so smart~his instincts at such an early age are incredible. The time he took to re-focus on his life & career will, no doubt, prove to be a very wise decision on his part. The timing couldn’t have been better ~So excited for this new phase he is entering~what lucky fans we are to experience it along with him.

    You said that perfectly!

    And a big hi to Steven 😛 Welcome aboard!

    I hope you follow me on this: This isn’t a direct quote (can’t find my book–dang it) just from my memory.

    In the book ” The Shack” there is a passage , which I will try to describe.

    The setting is in the kitchen of a cabin, where the character called ” Papa” ( who is actually God), while cooking is humming and singing along to a song playing on the radio. The person sitting at the kitchen table says “That’s a beautiful song, who is singing and what’s the name of the group?” To which Papa replies “Oh, my dear, they haven’t even been born yet.”

    SHIVERS!! Made me put down the book and gave me food for thought for a long time. Now, why do you suppose this should come to my mind now? I wonder…….

    Enough said!!

    Your mother is always with you…

    She’s the cool hand on your
    brow when you’re not well.

    Your mother lives inside
    your laughter. She’s crystallized
    in every tear drop…

    She’s the place you came from,
    your first home.. She’s the map you
    follow with every step that you take.

    She’s your first love and your first heart

    Your write-up of David’s band members is important. There is no one else making the bands announcements, other than themselves or doing any PR work for him. How does he get by? Well his fans have done so much for him like no other.

    Abrra, thanks for the poem, I had a little trouble with it after two lines…Just returned from spending the day with my kids, it is not always possible to do that. Now to spend time with the four legged ones so I will dress down for that!

    Happy Mother’s Day to everyone…

    Good Morning and Happy Mother’s Day!!!

    We celebrated Mother’s day and my mom’s 74 birthday yesterday, still trying to recuperate.

    Bebe!!!!

    I love the band series. It gives us a glimpse of what David is looking for and the the kind of sound we’ll be getting in the near future.

    Steve seems like such a good guy who has mad skills. His twitter parties are much fun with Steve giving us just enough without divulging anything David is not ready to share, I love this kind of respect. Looking forward to what the future holds.

    David and his announcement via video blog sure send twitter off in a way that I hadn’t seen in a while. The fans are still loving them some David and waiting to see him.

    David was trending worldwide for about 16 hours non stop and then in at least 8 countries and various cities throughout during that time span. It created such a buzz that people who don’t follow David could see him trending and started tweeting asking “Why is David archuleta trending” Well archangels started responding in full force. It was great to witness. They are planning to trend David again tomorrow. Hopefully it happens again. Trending doesn’t win David anything but it does make the media world take notice and that’s a good thing.

    David Archuleta: The ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO Video Interview!
    by Etan R May 9. 2011 11:39 AM

    It was sometimes hard to hear the soft-spoken David Archuleta over the bustling crowds at the “I Create Music” EXPO, but the 2008 American Idol runner-up had plenty of wonderful things to tell ASCAP’s Josh Briggs in this interview. David told us all about his current musical activities, his songwriting process and why he devotes so much time and effort to philanthropy.

    I think you meant acoustic. That is usually music with minimal instrumentation. When David did the radio M&G’s with Alfredo that was acoustic.
