Care to introduce yourself to our readers?

My name’s Rob and I’m a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer. My music is primarily rooted in rock, but also incorporates other elements and styles depending on the song.

Tell us a bit about your most recent release.

The new single is titled “This Place” and it’s an aggressive, hard rock song, with a few extra elements added on top of it. As for the song itself, I much prefer that the listener decide what the song is about. It doesn’t matter what inspired me to write it, or what it means to me specifically. What matters is what the song means to the person listening to it.

When it comes to the global pandemic, how are you keeping yourself out in the public eye while not being able to perform?

For the most part by doing things like this. Anything that promotes or helps build awareness of the music really. With performance opportunities being shut down or limited for so long now, you just have to adapt and seek out as many ways to get exposure as possible.

Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so if you were able to work with ONE fellow Canadian artist, alive or dead, who would you choose?

How do you choose that? There are so many options to choose from. My answer would change daily. For the sake of today, let’s go with Randy Bachman or Ian Thornley.

What’s your goal for 2022?

The goal right now is to promote this release and help get this song out there and heard. There are a few other projects currently in the works, so hopefully there will be more new music sooner than later.
