Born in Los Angeles, CA and a descendent of the Chiricahua Red Paint Apache people Rob has very strong ties to his heritage and with his family being from
New Mexico and Arizona he has a strong affection for the Southwest. Rob grew up listening to everything from Sons of the Pioneers to Elton John and everything in between. His own songwriting style is both very personal and also very heavily influenced by the Acoustic Roots Music he has been drawn to throughout his lifetime.
Rob says, “Acoustic Music has a way of really touching your soul. I think the organics of acoustic instruments and the natural materials they are made of truly have a way of reaching
us in a very primal way. Don’t get me wrong, I can enjoy Electronica just as much as anyone but for me, Acoustic Music dwells most harmoniously with that deep affection we
feel for music in our hearts.”
With Rob’s new solo project, Tumbleweed Rob & The Southwest Junction, he hopes to explore a more personal side of his artistic calling and give the folks who
have come to know him thus far a closer look at who he is as an artist and as a person.
