the bass man, songwriter, singer, producer
and  p. r. officer

Robert Reynolds, one half of The Mavericks dynamic 'rhythm' duo. Along with drummer Paul Deakin, they form the backbeat of the group - an integral and unique component that help make up the 'sound' that is The Mavericks'.

During the latter part of the 20th century, and the early 21st century, Robert spread his musical wings as one of the driving forces behind several beat combos. He is a major songwriter and singer with the swinging SWAG, a friendly conglomeration of musical buddies that include THE piano player, Mr Jerry Dale McFadden; Scotty Huff , the trumpeter on the Trampoline tour, and Wilco's tub-thumper Ken Coomer; among many others.

He has also teamed up with his syncopated partner in rhythm, Paul Deakin, the sensitive singer/songwriter Kevin Montgomery, and guitarist Doug Pettibone, to form the oh-so colourful four-some, known as PAINT.

He has also spent considerable time working with Jerry Dale McFadden and Scotty Huff on writing and playing musical scores for children's animated video storybooks, which has already earned them a prestigious award, and the release of a tie-in CD, Antarctic Antics. There is even talk of his creativity being put to use directing videos for a new young bandof Texans, The Luxury Liners.

Since The Mavericks hung up their boots to dry, Robert has also spent considerable days on the road playing with the afore-mentioned combos. He has done many shows in and around Nashville, as Swag, Paint and also backing one of Scotlands finest hidden treasures, singer/songwriter Dean Owens. He has also undertaken several extensive tours of the UK and Europe with Kevin Montgomery, often with Paul Deakin and a veritable host of fellow songwriters and musicians under the collective names of the Renegades and more
 recently The Road Trippers.

He has even ventured to the far reaches of the pacific rim, touring Australia with Kevin Montgomery, where he performed absolutely 'solo' for the very first time. And what great debut performances.

By mid 2003, Robert can now acknowledge and appreciate the critical (and reasonable commercial) success of SWAG's Catchall album and combine that with the enthusiastic and encouraging reception of his most recent solo performances.
This has allowed Robert Reynolds to add an even greater personal touch to his musical endeavours (and in the process including his middle name 'Earl') with the release of his first solo mini-albums, the delightfully diverse and often delicate - Audrey In A Dream,
followed by the equally engaging, melodic and authentic - The Wintersky Works.
On both releases, Robert Earl Reynolds quality of songwriting and arranging has been maintained and expanded,
further adding to his unique musical identity outside of The Mavericks.
And your bird can sing too!
Robert, along with Paul Deakin has also put together another collective swag of musicians - The Hillbilly Allstars,
featuring singer-actor Mark Collie, and BR549's Chuck Mead, amongst several others.

In recent years Robert has been busy collaborating with many other songwriters, building up quite a body (or maybe skeletons!) of songs not currently available in The Mavericks' or any of their side-projects recorded catalogue of works.
These songs can be found registered with BMI (a major music publisher). Most of these have yet to be commercially released by any of the The Mavericks themselves, or through some other outlet.
