Rocker Rob Reischak Set to Drop his New Single 'Cactus'
LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Veteran rocker and Vaud and the Villains guitarist Rob Reischak will drop his newest solo single “Cactus,” on May 4.
Reischak gets back his rock and rhythm and blues roots with “Cactus,” a rock ballad with a definitive country and western feel. It features Reischak on guitar in a song that was inspired by his personal musical journey of building a career in Brazil then deciding to come to the U.S. and take on new challenges.
The new single arrives ahead of his debut solo album which will be released this summer which will showcase the artist's rock and roll and rhythm and blues roots. Known for his work with Vaud and the Villains, Reischak has also worked with Steve Vai, Cristian Castro, Natalia Jimenez, Glennellen, singer/songwriter Alexandria Corn, the keyboardist Henry Soleh Brewer (Earth, Wind & Fire) and many others.
“I always have a great time with Vaud and the Villains, Reischak said. “As a solo artist I don’t really have to be restricted to one genre of music. It gives me freedom to do whatever I want. With the band we usually write knowing we have a more specific niche and genre.”
The Brazilian-born Reischak has been an industry mainstay with his work as a session musician and collaboration with top artists thanks to his imaginative riffs and solos that echo many of his top influences over time.
“I’ve accomplished so much the last couple years and I can’t really complain at all. Besides playing for so many great established artists, and also up-and-coming singer/songwriters, also playing alongside the best musicians in LA, I definitely had some of the biggest highlights in my career when in 2018 I had the great honor to work for one of my biggest heroes – three-time Grammy Award winner and 15-time nominee, guitar god Steve Vai.”
Besides working on his upcoming album, Reischak is also gearing up to tour with Vaud and the Villains this summer.
