Blanc Faces

Blanc Faces, headed by the brothers duo, Robbie and Brian La Blanc, are a new and dynamic melodic rock group based in the U.S., (New York and Connecticut area). Their harmonies are unsurpassed and focal to their sound and style. Robbie is lead vocalist and plays rhythm guitar. Brian sings background and plays the bass. They write, produce and engineer their own music, with the help of a talented team of musicians and artists, including, on this project, Kyle Woodring (Dennis DeYoung/Styx; Survivor; John Mellencamp) on drums, with additional drum tracks by Tony Archer, Jeff Batter on keyboards, and Butch Taylor on lead guitar. The CD is mixed by Dennis Ward (PC 69).

Throughout their career, they have been involved with various projects including providing background vocals on music involving "Toto" lead singer Bobby Kimball and legendary singer Ronnie Spector. Robbie also performed live with Toto at a recent concert in 2003. They have recorded original material at Michael Bolton studios and also played guitar and sang background vocals on some of his demo music. They have performed at many well-known venues in NYC and have been on Television, most notably, the original Star Search, back in the 80’s. Coincidentally, Joseph Williams, a one-time lead singer for Toto and also a Frontiers’ artist was on the very same show. Most recently they opened up for Grammy winners, The Blind Boys of Alabama.
