Hi! I'm Rob Vischer. My schedule gets interrupted by the neon shades of nostalgic sunsets, by love stories hidden in the wrinkly smiles of elderly couples, and by light bulb ideas for soaring melodies and intimate lyrics.
Whether I'm on stage or at the dinner table, my life equals adventure. "On my bike trip across America" is the phrase that introduces way too many of my stories, and stories, in movie or book form, are the only things that keep me up past 4 a.m.
My mom once told me, "Things aren't boring. People are." My goal is to never be one of those people. I don't play video games, but I'm always up for a drive-in movie. I don't own a tv, but if you catch me daydreaming, I'm probably scribbling down mental notes of song ideas.
On August 27, some of those mental notes will echo off the digital halls of itunes and amazon.com as I release my new album, Meant to Love. I'm grateful to say that the first single off of the new album is a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and has had extensive radio play in Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois.
One of my college professors said that his life goal was "to advise students to take big risks." I was the student who listened. In the last five years, I quit a well paying job to bicycle across America, release an album, sell cd's door to door, and tour. As a result, I've experienced scenery that most people only view on a postcard or through their windshield. I've sold 2,000 cd's. And I met and fell in love with the most beautiful woman on the planet.
Right now, I'm in Nashville finishing a book about my bike trip across America, getting ready to release more music, and constantly growing in my capacity to love God and others.
When people ask me why I don't watch many movies, I always answer, "Because I'd rather live the movie." With God whispering his direction and close friends offering their ideas and support, there's no movie I'd rather be apart of.
As you get to know me, my music, and my mission, I hope your daydream movies become the motion pictures you live in.
