Rob has always been fascinated with the Guitar, "The First Time I heard guys like Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page over the Radio - I was immediately Hooked on the Guitar and the First Time I held my First Acoustic at age 6 -I felt like a Rock Star -There's just that magical/mystical feeling a Guitar gives you...-Like that of nothing else- Its really a True extension of ones Soul"
Rob has also dabbled in the field of acting having landed a part in a Canadian film entitled "Exhiles" in 2000. But the long waits between shooting scenes - made Rob realize he really didnt have the patience for acting..lol.

Robs Taste in Music varies Greatly everything From Metal to Country - so when people ask Rob to define his Genre of music he plays he finds really hard to limit labelling himself to any particular Genre, as his musical ideas and compositions will change from One Day to the next. When asked about this he said " I Pretty much like all kinds of music and generally when I pick up the guitar and compose a song...I really just end up going wherever my mood,imagination and ears take me that day".
Rob Stated- "I was heavily Influenced and motivated by pretty much every Major Rock Guitarist out there from Page to Slash to Zakk Wylde- I love everything from Classic Zepplin to Modern Day BLS.
Rob is an admitted "Control Freak" when it comes to his music . Everything you hear on his tracks is Rob and Rob Alone...He uses a Roland GR-20 Guitar Synth to record backing Synth Tracks . Which You can hear on a number of songs like "Armageddon" and "Never Surrender" (The Saxaphone is actually Rob Playing Guitar via the Roland GR-20)
Rob is currently working on his Third album which should be released sometime in 2014.
Rob is a very hands on perfectionist who Composes,records,mixes,masters and even designs his own artwork for his CD covers. (Typical Capricorn..lol) Robs music can be heard on both internet radio stations like the "Unsigned Musicians Show" and "Indie Spotlight Live" - and also various other Radio stations as well. its a very gratifying feeling when you get a Radio DJ contact you personally just to say how much they love your music and love playing it on their show.
Robs Music has gained him the personal attention of a few Record Label Execs in the past and his music gets a lot of airplay globally via various online Radio stations and streams via online music stores.
When asked about his music Rob stated ....." I make Music for myself really, I like to come up with tunes that I find personally satisfying to play on Guitar ....The Fact that other people just happen to also love my music and actually take the time to check it out and buy it or take the time to drop me a note about it ....is somthing that only a Musician can Truly appreciate....because for me personally, I just love all types of Music and just Love to play Guitar" -The Thought that people can make money and a half-decent living at this stuff is really magical"
"How I approach Music is like this....I consider Music to be an art much like painting....Like Fine art....its all starts out as a vision and idea....then slowly transforms into a finished work of art as the artist pursues that vision in his/her song. One of my favorite artists was Jimi Hendrix ...because he knew how to treat his Guitar ....like a painter would their canvas and make these Brilliant colors appear from the strings of his Guitar. I try to approach the Guitar much the same way Jimi did...Just play from the soul and let your inner spirit/Soul take over and your imagination guide you along the way across the Fretboard" . You can pretty much instictively tell those guys who really play from the soul as opposed to the ones who just want to get through a song. The music either becomes a deep part of you at that moment or it doesnt" . Rob is currently working on his Third Album Entitled "Time is up for the NWO" .
