Chris Robinson Brotherhood is an American blues rock band formed in 2011 by Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson while The Black Crowes were on hiatus.
The band has released three albums: Big Moon Ritual, The Magic Door, and Phosphorescent Harvest. The band consists of Robinson, guitarist Neal Casal, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, bassist Mark Dutton, and drummer Tony Leone (who replaced original drummer George Sluppick in January 2015).
The band’s debut album, Big Moon Ritual, was recorded at Sunset Sound Studios, Los Angeles, and was released on June 5, 2012. Chris Robinson suggests that Big Moon Ritual is “not a concept album, but it’s very conceptual sonically.” He also notes that CRB “isn’t the type of band that’s going to make a concise four-minute song record” and that they prefer instead to make lengthier compositions.
