Some things are just meant to be.
When Naomi Hooley moved 3000 miles, from a small town in Alaska, the chances meeting Rob Stroup, from a small town in Oregon, were pretty slim. But it happened... and from the moment they met there was musical chemistry.
Naomi is a prolific song writer with a unique style and vocal signature. The local press has called her voice “cool and powerful” and her songwriting “masterful”.
Rob's musical background brings a whole other set of sounds and influences. A founding member of Portland's beloved roots rock combo The Baseboard Heaters – Rob draws on 60's rock and classic country influences. Also informed by the “Oklahoma sound” of JJ Cale and the bluesy sides of Dylan.
Together – now starting to co-write music together, they cover a lot of ground and meld together in a very cohesive and polished act.
You'll experience a show delivered with powerful piano and acoustic guitar, combined with foot percussion and amazing harmonies, with a side of story telling.
Naomi and Rob have taken this act all up and down the West Coast and continue to be very well received by a very diverse group of audiences.
Available for house concerts and weddings as well.
