Smash Mob’s Single “Mama Please” features Robin Sandoval
Smash Mob’s Jason Eldridge and Frank Rogala have dropped a new single, Mama Please, featuring the vocal talents of noted songwriter Robin Sandoval.
“Robin has been a friend for over 15 years, so we were excited to finally get a chance to work with her. She had already been working with many of our talented composer friends and it was just time,” enthused Rogala.
Sandoval first hit the Hollywood scene in the 1990s performing as a percussionist on major network TV shows alongside many of LA’s legendary studio players. She has gone on to collaborate with many notable artists and composers including a major label release (MCA Records) with performer John Pagano.
“Robin has a spectacular R&B voice,” says Rogala. “A very fluid, expressive, melodic voice and timbre not to mention a rap voice as well. I think her impeccable rhythm comes from her being a first-rate percussionist. We hope to make use of that ‘rap voice’ in the very near future.”
“Her lyrics were everything you’d hope as a composer,” explained Eldridge, “thought-provoking, unique and very conversational. Robin just checks all the right boxes. Mama Please has a hypnotic rhythmic quality to it that Robin is a master at performing."
"A large portion of this lyric and storyline poured out of my subconscious," explained Sandoval. "Smash Mob has this intuitive way of making me write that is completely backward from anything else I have done in the past - but it freakin' works! It wasn't till after I was done that I really understood what the song was about. Amazing!"
Along with dozens of music placements in TV and films Smash Mob is best known for writing the theme song for the History Channel Show Alone, as well as their dancefloor stomping remix of the Wonder Woman theme song from the 70’s TV show.
