Rob's first public appearance was in his family's country church and as the preacher applauded his performance, at four years old, he knew right then and there that he loved music. 'My grandfather had a Southern Gospel Quartet,' says Rob, 'with Grandma on the piano.' 'At age eight he gave me my first guitar and before long, I found myself the opening act and touring the local churches.' At fourteen Rob started his first band Odyssey and they 'played the garage'. Four years later with original material written by Rob the band had grown and toured nationally and ended up playing crowds of 5,000. While touring with his rock-n-roll band, Rob studied classically in High School. He auditioned for a music festival, which led to a full four-year music scholarship to Morehead State University. Although, he was also offered a Baseball and Basketball scholarship, he turned them down knowing that music was his first and only love. During college he played out and as often as possible and gained notoriety as both a singer and guitarist. After graduation he began touring with the Van-Dells, a national touring show band, which helped him to further define his skills and fine tune the knowledge of his own solo career. Rob moved to Nashville-the center of music and recording-where he continues to develop his voice, guitar, and songwriting skills. One day, with recording contract in hand, you will see Rob 'out front' performing with his long awaited dream guitar a Pink Paisley Telecaster.
