Hard to Believe
It's hard to believe that the former lead guitar player for the heavy rock band Acrophet has reinvented himself as a soulful, expressive and thoughtful acoustic roots rock performer. Nonetheless, the apparently effortless transformation is audible on 'Hard To Believe', the first solo album by Rob Anthony. 'Hard To Believe' clearly reveals he has turned his former angst of being a loud and proud rocker into a heartfelt singer delivering honest songs outlined by an acoustic guitar. In 'She'll Come Home To You' Rob unleashes his singing and songwriting skills in an intense, upbeat performance inspired by a friends rough breakup he keeps hope of the day she'll run back. 'Just Me And You' with it's put the top down ride through the desert feel, let's you join Rob's dream of traveling around the world. 'Sister', a nothing to be short of song, Anthony belts out a message to his sister he hasn't heard from in several years while going on reminding us that love can be right in front of you without you even realizing it in 'More Than A Friend'. We can't help being reminded of the many times we've lost our way only to gain control again when hearing 'It Wasn't Too Long Ago' before busting out it's 'Hard To Believe that I am the one for you' in 'Hard To Believe'. With that said Rob offers 'Hard To Believe' a blend of alternative country rock songs.
