Interview with multi-talented actor, writer, and musician JOHN ROBERTS
Hailing from Edison, NJ, John Roberts's deep-rooted love for music can be traced back to his youth. At the onset of the 90's he fell in love with the New York City rave scene and frequented the storied warehouse parties mythologized in movies like “Go.” He visited Other Music in the city’s fashion-forward Village neighborhood on a weekly basis to buy new releases from Orbital, Moby, and more. Blondie tapped him to drop some lyrical fire on “Love Level” from their critically acclaimed 2017 chart-topper Pollinator. "Looking," a wild anthem produced by Big Black Delta, followed in 2019, marked his solo debut with remixes by Tensnake, Junior Sanchez, and Gerd Janson. The song—which landed at #19 on UK club charts--along with “Dirty Little Secrets” and “Lonely Boys Have Fun Too” appeared on his self-titled EP released last summer. Flashforward to 2020, Roberts entered the studio with longtime club friend Junior Sanchez for its follow-up. “Freaks” due out this fall is one of the many songs the two collaborated on which will be released in 2021. John is a cast member of the EMMY Award-winning “Bob’s Burgers” as lovable & loud matriarch Linda Belcher which landed him the first EMMY nod in the category of “Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance” (2015).
