Songs of Solomon was founded by Big Baffolo and Rob B. Line in 1994 in Vienna/AUT. Shortly appeared as band in the mid 90s, but was kept as a production- and studio project by Rob B. Line over the years. Cooperations with artists from all different continents resulted in a broad spectrum of sounds and influences in the music of S.O.S. Songs of Solomon was created in the light of the wisdom of the Book "Song of Songs" of King Solomon, which is all about love. Each participant and artistic result of collaborations in projects of S.O.S. is seen as 1 out of many songs, creating a flood of songs of love over the years. In more than 25 years of actively playing and producing music, Rob B. Line was working for numerous bands and projects as guitarist, bassist, vocalist, dubist (lol), audioengineer, promoter, tourmanager, booker and producer and is currently avaiable for live, studio and recording projects. Tracks that you hear, are concept takes for the upcomming 1st album called "InIversal Language ".
