... and everywhere in between. His live shows are garnering him an increasingly devoted fanbase of hardcore music lovers who often travel great distances to see him play in person. His fans always mention Rob’s ever-present wry smile, and how he makes you feel like you’re in on a shared secret … That secret is becoming less of a secret now since his CD/DVD “Like A Metaphor” (2006) is becoming a sleeper hit: Canada’s CBC Radio 1 and 3 have been championing it on shows nationwide and the old-school Disney-style animated video for the lead single “Breaking Even” got major airplay on Much More Music and Bravo, where it peaked at #2 on the charts.
The follow up single “Good Son” and its documentary-style road video is currently in rotation on both stations. The CD has garnered rave reviews from the music press, both in his native Canada and the U.S., where he’s been called “Cobain-worthy”. Rob has released 9 CDs: 3 solo and 6 fronting various bands, including Plasticine & The Groove Daddys. Rob’s debut solo CD “a battery of tests” was released in 2003 on Hamilton,ON-based indie label Basement Bar Records as was his 2005 release “Late Bloomer/Sore Loser”, a Double E.P. Rob plays honest intense music for music lovers. http://www.robszabo.com/ Read more on Last.fm.
