Robert ’Sput’ Searight launches RSVP Records.

Robert ‘Sput’ Searight and Ropeadope announce the launch of RSVP Records, a new LA based label headed by Sput Searight and connected to the Ropeadope family of labels. The first release on RSVP will be the debut album from Ghost-Note, the drum and percussion based project from Sput and his Snarky Puppy compatriot Nate Werth. Fortified is scheduled for release on October 16, 2015.

Robert Searight is held in high esteem by his peers and fans alike. His credits are lengthy - from work with Kirk Franklin, Snoop Dogg, Timbaland, Erykah Badu, Cheryl 'Salt' James, and Justin Timberlake, to his years drumming and helping to shape the Snarky Puppy sound, to his most recent work with Shaun Martin and Kendrick Lamar. The Grammy winner expands the world’s notion of the drums as he constantly evolves and pours his soul into the music. Sput is the quiet and brilliant force that propels a band in new and powerful directions. Yet it is his work as producer that awaits the full understanding and recognition, and RSVP is the start of a new phase in his career.

‘Music often serves as a tour guide, and when placed in the right hands, the journey can take one further inside themselves than they ever dared to consider. It can provoke change of behavior and plant seeds of dreams to come. It is the soundtrack to our lives, and yet, we don’t truly acknowledge the power it has to actually charge the energy surrounding us.’ (Robert Searight)

RSVP will serve as a conduit for some of the best kept secrets in our extended music community, with goal of filling the airwaves with a much needed uplifting sound at the highest level of musicality as we go through these tough times.’ (Robert Searight)
