About Robert Troy Kimball
Robert Troy Kimball was born in Orange, Texas, and was raised in nearby Vinton, Louisiana, as Vinton did not have a hospital (thus, he was born across the state line). Kimball started singing as a child, dabbling on voice and piano in a musical household throughout his youth. Throughout the 1970s, Kimball performed as a vocalist in various New Orleans-area bands, including The Levee Band, which would later become Le Roux after Kimball left. In 1974, Bobby Kimball left Louisiana and moved to Los Angeles where he joined 3 members from the defunct band, Three Dog Night, to form a new band called S.S. Fools. They released one album on CBS Records, but the band split up within a year and a half. About six months later, Kimball was asked by David Paich and Jeff Porcaro, to join the five session musicians to form Toto. He submitted a self-penned audition song for the band, "You Are The Flower," which was included on their debut album. Kimball performed on the first four studio albums by Toto. Kimball has been touring and doing concerts with many of his friends' bands around the world. In January 2010, he did 14 concerts in Germany on the "Rock Meets Classic" Tour with "The Prague Symphony Orchestra," featuring Philipp Maier as Conductor and Music Arranger. The singers with Kimball on this tour were Lou Gramm, the original lead vocalist of Foreigner, and Dan McCafferty, from the band Nazareth. On May 16, 2010, at the Louisiana Music Homecoming in Erwinville, LA, Bobby Kimball was inducted into The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. Kimball also recorded a well-received progressive rock album in 2010 entitled "Elements" under the band name "Yoso" with former Yes members Tony Kaye and Billy Sherwood. Kimball recorded the 2011 album Kimball/Jamison with Jimi Jamison. In July 2011, Kimball toured Ireland with an emerging Irish band, Shadowplay. In November 2012, Kimball is touring South America. The tour includes Argentina, Uruguay, Chile and PerÃº. In Montevideo, Uruguay, he played at Sala Zitarrosa in November 29. In March of 2013 Kimball was a special guest vocalist with the Raiding the Rock Vault classic rock tribute show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
