Rob has been a fixture in the Philly music scene over 35 years. Starting as a drummer on the club circuit.

Along with music Rob has also been a contributor to local entertainment paper Out On The Town and national publication North Eastern Entertainment Magazine, including interviews with Ken Scott former Beatles engineer and Joe Tarsia, founder of the Legendary Sigma Sound Studios home of Philly R & B and powerhouse Philly International Record Label in the 1970s.

“Having the opportunity to actually talk to some of these iconic names and write about it was a dream for me. To be able to draw knowledge from them in 1997 Rob recorded his first CD a collaboration of music with some friends and recorded a second CD in 2000.” says Rob

 

Moving forward Rob put together his own cover band Waterfall in 2013 and switched to guitar and vocals and took to the club circuit once again this time incorporating some of his own music which led to his first solo recordings in 2014 WATERFALL CD.

With that release Rob’s music started getting airplay around the country on both FM Indie radio and internet radio.

In 2016 with his second release OPEN PAGES, Rob had a song off that CD Words Of Love included in an upcoming Indie film Love Songs Weren’t Meant To make You Cry set for release late 2017.

 

“I got a phone call from a director through a mutual friend who was looking for ballads and heard some of my music and asked about using Words Of Love and I have to say I was honored.”  “It was sort of the pinnacle in my writing career and is helping establish me as a credible musician and at the end of the day that’s what it’s all about for me.” says Rob 

Over the last few years, Rob has played some of the best venues in and around the Philly area including a five year run at Parx Casino Club 360, The Troc, Legendary JC Dobbs, The Jersey Shore Festival and Havana Club in New Hope, Pa.

In October of this year Rob released his third CD ONE LOVE ONE HEART to some great reviews and is currently filming accompanying videos “I wanted to do some videos on this one because there are some subjects very close to home this time around, and I believe people will relate”. says Rob

Rob can be found on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter on social media. His music can be found on CDBaby and Spotify. Besides music, Rob self published a book in 2011 on Eastern State Penitentiary, an 80 page photo journal at the old abandoned prison in Philadelphia.

That book is now available on AMAZON. Rob said about the book “It was one of the most satisfying events I have ever experienced! Second to none. To have my book in stores was amazing.”

Looking to branch out Rob has been submitting music to a variety of movie and TV outlets in search of licensing deals. “To me that’s my main focus. I’m not a rock star and have no pre-conceived notions about it. I do like performing live but my main passion is writing and recording. I absolutely love the process.” says Rob
