RICK ROBERTS

Rick is a 40-year veteran of the rock’n’roll wars. He began his
recording career in 1970 with the Flying Burrito Brothers and was a
major contributor to their last two albums. He went on to do two solo
albums and then form the well-known band Firefall in 1974, with whom he
played for seven years during their heyday. He has also been a member of
both Stephen Stills and Linda Ronstadt’s bands during his career, and
has been awarded two platinum and four gold albums for his efforts.

He has had over 60 of his compositions recorded and performed by such
artists as The Burritos, Firefall, Stephen Stills, Linda Ronstadt, Barry
Manilow, The Dirt Band, and numerous others. He is the composer of the
hit songs “Just Remember I Love You”, “You Are The Woman”, “Strange
Way”, “It Doesn’t Matter”, “Livin’ Ain’t Livin”, “Mexico”, “Colorado”,
and several more that graced the Top 40 at one time or another.

LARRY BURNETT

As a 16-year-old in his father’s home in Ventura, California, Larry
wrote his first song. 10 years later, “Cinderella” (“one of the most
frighteningly beautiful love song ever made”, said one reviewer) was
dominating the airwaves around the world as a single release from the
debut album from Firefall. Fans were screaming their recognition at the
distinctive opening hook of the song that began every Firefall
performance for the next 9 years.

Larry Burnett’s songs and singing added a diversity and edginess, as
well as an irony in his own observations in affairs of the heart, which
broadened the band’s fan base and life span.

Firefall concerts, heavily laden with Burnett’s songs, betrayed the
innocence portrayed by the lighter side represented by his songwriting
counterpart, Rick Roberts.

Having composed and sung lead on half of the songs that the band
recorded, Larry Burnett demonstrated formidable talent and insight into
the minds and hearts of millions of music lovers. The songs of Firefall
and Larry Burnett have been cited as major influences in the lives and
music of such artists as Garth Brooks and Travis Tritt.

The demise of the band in no way affected Larry’s life as a
singer/songwriter. Having spent 10 years in the presence of songwriting
peers like Michael McDonald, Stephen Stills, Billy Joel and others of
the era, Larry Burnett has continued to develop and mature as a
songwriter, combining his newly acquired skills and disciplines with his
unique spin on life and relationships.
