Morning Source with Donna Vissman talks with Actor and Singer/Songwriter Rob Mayes.
Some of Rob Mayes recent projects include a Christmas movie, a podcast and an EP called Songs from the Sofa: A Quarantine Project.
Mayes’ new Christmas movie is called “The Christmas Edition,” which is about Jackie (Carly Hughes), an up-and-coming journalist, who finds that her life is at a crossroads until she finds an unexpected opportunity – to run a small-town newspaper in Alaska. Learn more here.
Mayes is also working on the Make It Up As We Go podcast, which follows the story of an aspiring young songwriter, played by Scarlett Burke, and her pursuits to make a name for herself in the music industry. Encountering a number of characters along the way, including legendary Nashville producer Van Tyler (played by Billy Bob Thornton), and the voice of country radio, Bobby Bones (playing himself). Make It Up As We Go unravels Charlotte’s own personal journey navigating the writer rooms of Nashville, which is where the stories are told, songs are born, and in turn – finding her own voice along the way.

This pandemic period also inspired Mayes to create some raw music with his new EP called “Songs from the Sofa”, which is a series of songs he performed in his living room during lockdown. More here.
