“The city meets the country at the Crossroads, and that's where you'll find Rob” - Brian Tucker
— Avenue Magazine
Rob grew up in music. A blend of a Classical Pianist grandfather on one side and a wild, unapolegetic horde of mountain bluegrass and country musicians on the other. One of his favorite sayings is that he, "grew up with one foot in the grass and one in the street". Rob is a touring musician, playing festivals, clubs, cafes, restaurants and private corporate events up and down the East Coast from New Jersey to Florida and back to his home in Wilmington, NC. He has been playing solo for the last decade but has recently begun an exciting project with a backing band that will join him at festivals and other larger shows. He has opened for internationally famed blues shredder Joe Bonamassa, late Grateful Dead Keyboardist Vince Wellnick, Nazareth, and nationally touring Americana Legend Eric Lindell. Rob composes in English and Spanish, having earned a B.A. in Spanish from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and has won international songwriting competitions for his compositions in Spanish. His music is an amazing blend of city and country, night and day, a concept he jokingly calls "Funktry". Rob writes all of his own music, and generally plays all of the instruments on his albums, with the exception of contracting out drumming duties to his long-time friend John Wade. He has made numerous radio appearances, most notably a monthly recurring spot on The Z1075 Morning Show with Foz and Laura, a show based in Wilmington.
