Rock & Roll
Rob won a Grammy Award (Best Rock Song) for “Drops of Jupiter”, and was the musical force behind hits such as “Meet Virginia”, “Free”, “I Am”, and “Get to Me”. Rob founded the band Train, and his songwriting helped to create their multi-platinum success, but, due to musical differences, he left after their third album. After leaving Train, Rob recorded and produced his solo album, Midnight Ghost, which received tremendous critical acclaim. Rob’s classic sound, with meaningful lyrics, beautiful melodies, and lush harmonies, has been likened to The Beatles, Neil Young, and more current artists like Ed Sheeran. After several years of retirement from music, Rob moved back to the Bay Area to work with Tom Luce (of LUCE) and Charlie Colin (former member of Train) on a project they called Painbirds. This culminated with an eponymous EP released in June of 2015. Rob began a solo career in late 2015. He is writing songs and performing to discerning audiences throughout California.
