A very welcome return to Rob, without doubt one of the finest singer / songwriters to ever grace our club. Having performed here solo, as a duo and a 4 piece band, this time it’s full on 5 piece band.
As a performer, Rob’s passion and self-penned emotionally driven songs have helped him provide recent touring support to Ian McCulloch, Mark Morris and Amy Wadge as well as a growing catalogue of live sessions on national and independent radio.
Also, as a song writer Rob has recently been sought after to write for X-Factor finalist Katie Waissel’s new band and Spanish ‘emo’ artist Alen Seed. He has also written four new songs for a new musical film release by Tornado Films entitled ‘Rain’.
Prior to Rob’s solo career, he has toured the UK and Europe, including a residency at Liverpool’s Cavern Club, has played Wembley arena and has supported Dodgy, The Mystery Jets, Hayseed Dixie and Bernard Butler.
Let it go is Rob’s new debut 12 track album released last year, 2013. The album was mixed and co-produced by Richard Thomson’s Grammy nominated producer Simon Tassano and has received praise from the great man himself!
Taking the support slot this week is local lad Eddie Witcombe, a fine guitarist and singer / songwriter.
