Rob started singing in 2005 when he was selected to represent the Maine Jaycees in the 2005 National Jaycee Idol competition. He was in the top 10 applicants from nearly 150 finalists from all over the country to perform at the Jaycee National Convention in Boston. Since then he has competed three times in the Augusta Colgate Country Showdown - twice as a soloist, and in 2008 with his first band, Trapper Creek - taking 9th place out of over 20 acts. Since then he has been in a few bands but none ever really took off. Currently working on recording demos of original music written by a friend.
