Brand New Day
Rob is dedicated to providing "family friendly" music to young and "young at heart" listeners everywhere. His work consists of writing, recording, publishing and distributing music, and live performing. Rob grew up in a musical household and has been playing instruments and singing all his life. He has been performing in the Connecticut and New York metro area, playing in churches, libraries, schools and other public venues since the early 1990's. Most recently, he is a regular cantor at Holy Family Church in Fairfield, CT and is also invited to lead Liturgical music at Christ the King Church in Trumbull CT for special events such as First Reconciliation and First Communion. Rob first began performing after attending children's shows with his own 3 youngsters (who are now grown), and became inspired to sing for young people himself. He also joined the folk group at St. Pius at that time, where he was a regular group member and then later began leading the group. In 1992, Rob released his first recording, "My First Step" at the demand of his audiences. Rob's call to perform Catholic music continued to grow, and based on feedback from church congregations he produced his second recording, "Brand New Day", which was released in November 2000. On his next project in late 2001, "Journey of Faith", he shared some of his best original Catholic compositions that were arranged, performed and produced himself. Today most of Rob's focus is in Catholic music, and he continues to compose and perform in the Southern Connecticut area. He lives with his wife and three children in Fairfield, Connecticut.
