Product Notes

Rob Schulz A singer/songwriter and guitarist originally out of the State of Iowa, Rob Schulz has been performing in and around the Chicago area since 1989. He released his self titled debut in 1990 followed by "Something To Believe In" in 1992. In 1994, he teamed up with fellow songwriter Mike McGlaughlin to form the power pop quartet Swinger. Their first release, "Half Day Road" was in 1996, followed by "The Walk" in 1999. Set for an August, 2008 release is a new 11 song record. The opening "Guantanamo Bay" is a beach rocker with a decidedly "Kink's/Beach Boys" feel, creating a satirical advertisement for an imaginary luxury resort on the south east side of Cuba. "Anyone But Me" is a song about longing for the days of old, while the rest of the world passes you by. "I Gave My Soul To You" yields a slowed down girl group rhythm evoking sounds of Elvis Costello's "Party Girl" or "Man Out OF Time". On the soaring "Gonna Rock You", swelling guitars lift this existential angst song up to the heavens. Despite apparent influences, Schulz is no cipher, bringing his own unique personalities and sensibilities to the fore. His work displays a wealth of hook-packed classic power pop that is earnest, tuneful, sincere, dynamic and accessible. His frighteningly memorable melodies and precise guitar motifs are terrifyingly catchy. Please contact Rob Schulz at 773-580-6386 for booking information. Thank you for listening and supporting independent labels and bands.
