Rob Robinson is an American Singer-Songwriter, Guitarist and Drummer. He has performed a variety of musical styles over the years including Rock, Pop Folk and Blues. Rob’s musical roots were largely based on his involvement with Drum Corps from the age of nine into his late teens. He was a 3-time National Snare Drumming Champion by the time he reached the age of twenty-one.
Rob’s interest in performing popular music took hold during his teenage years as his passion for drumming led him into several bands and original projects around the Philadelphia area. He would eventually go on to tour and record with roots based artist Ben Vaughn, who according to Rob had a profound influence on his music appreciation. As Rob toured the US and Europe extensively, he was introduced to a variety of new music and artists. These influences would have a profound impact on the direction of Rob's music and ideas. His focus would soon shift from drumming to writing songs.
Rob began this new journey into songwriting while continuing to drum for many artists around the Philadelphia area including Suzanne Gorman and Amy Carr. In 2009 Rob began work on his first solo CD and in the fall of 2013 Catchin' A Ride was released. Since then Rob has taken his music on the road to many US cities including New York, Philadelphia, Norfolk, Nashville and Memphis. Rob has been a featured guest on NPR's Acoustic Highway.
