Rob grew up from day one as an audio adventurer with his Dad in the speaker business. He gravitates more towards the philosophical and mystical side of life. This truly shows in his arrangement and message. Most of his songs have real "conclusions" that will give you a sense of total completion...like reading a short story. Rob vocals have a smooth, velvety richness. He writes his songs so they can relate to anyone on a broad spectrum of emotional and mental levels. As a kid Rob went retro young and immersed himself in his parent's music... The roots of Rock and Roll. In his teens Rob became a huge 60's psychedelic fan absorbing and covering many bands that came out of the Woodstock Era into 70's Classic Rock. Grunge became his next obsession. Scott Weiland and the Stone Temple Pilots still remain his favorite singer and band...especially their chill work. Rob considers his acoustic guitar his best friend ever. An avid listener can tell he's influenced by all types of music. ENJOY a relaxing reflective ride with Rob Lord.
