Ottawa's Robert Farrell, called by Pro-Critic Radio, "a genetically engineered guitarist for the 21st century" has been converting fans with his brand of rock blues for the past ten years. This master of wicked tone, awesome licks and smooth vocals, has no plans to stop casting his playing spell. With the release of the all-instrumental Elegant Chaos (2004), Robert has now produced six albums including: Freedom For My Soul (1996), When the Banks of the Mississippi Run Dry (1997), Robert Farrell Express (2000), "Best of" AutoLoader (2002) and Sun House Fury Part I (SHF) (2003). Selected tracks from all the CDs have received extensive local, and selected national and international radio play and Internet exposure. Hug Me Squeeze Me, a cut from Express, hit #1 on the mp3.com blues rock chart twice totaling 5 weeks at the top spot; the track was as high as 23 on the World Top 40 mp3.com chart in the company of such artists as Madonna and R.E.M. To close off 2002, Robert offered his "Best of" AutoLoader, a 12 track collection of his most downloaded songs with two bonus tracks: Incidental Blues and Joelee, a cut played on local stations and selected radio spots in Canada the same year. AutoLoader upped the ante as to what fans expect from Robert and he delivered on Sun House Fury Part I (SHF). SHF Part I rocks out, with guitar playing and smooth, sexy vocals that are uniquely and singularly Robert Farrell.

Stronghold of Love hit #2 on New Artist Radio' (NAR) top 40 chart. (July, 2004). Woolly Mammoth was selected as the #3 song for all of 2004 on the On the Horizon Radio Show as well as repeating as the show's #10 track for 2005. Unspoken Lament off of Elegant Chaos hit #1 on NAR in July, 2005.

Tracks Razorback and Manhattan Sunburst hit the #10 spot on the On the Horizon Show for the year 2006. That same year...backed by drummer, Andrew Lamarche, and bass player, Stephen Clarke, robert farrell band (rfb) was the runner-up Canadian band in MUSIC AID's International Music Awards. Robert also scored two runner-up placements as Best Male Solo Artist and Best Male Songwriter. In February 2007, rfb represented southeastern Ontario at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis where the band showcased its rock blues driven sound. In 2008, rfb showcased on Canada's CBC Bandwidth - the performance was also bought for airing on Saturday Night Blues. And speaking of CBC, re-issued Sun House Fury has been picked up for distribution to all 30 radio stations across Canada. More good news - Session (Elegant Chaos) is the soundtrack for the award-winning Homage to Film Noir short "The Stakeout" which showcased on Super Channel this past February. And Robert is already busy with his 7th album, Caviar in the Outback.

Two tracks from it: Slow Burn - "I'm listening to it right now. Sounds great. Beautiful production, too!" (Kath Thompson, former Music Director 106.9 The BEAR), and Do You Want Me To are two great hors d’oeuvres to start with. Read more on Last.fm.
