Robert Arellano found success in music early on as the founding bassist of Austin's notorious Retarted Elf, opening for big-name acts like Faith No More and Fugazi. Eventually, music faded to the background. After withdrawing from public performance, Arellano spent a decade honing his vocals, writing, and arranging while raising his daughter … until a trip to Peru and work with the sacred plant-medicine known as ayahuasca reoriented his life and career.

Arellano’s psychedelic folk represents the next stage of his musical evolution and his public re-launch after the hard reckoning of spiritual transformation brought him to ground zero. His music combines his distinctive voice – Jane’s Addiction and Alice in Chains producer Dave Jerden called it “one in a million” – with his musical roots: Texas metal, acoustic rock, and the classical sensibility of a boy whose earliest memories are of lying beneath his mom’s grand piano listening to her play Brahms and Chopin.
