NASHVILLE - BOSTON
Rob was born in Providence, Rhode Island on May 30th, 1985. He lived in Riverside, RI until age six and moved with his family to Westfield, Massachusetts in 1991. As a teenager, he began to focus on hockey as his primary sport where he eventually went on to be a Maine Black Bear and play at the University of Maine in Orono. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in 2004. Rob has also played for the Philadelphia Phantoms, Adirondack Phantoms, Nottingham Panthers, Elmira Jackals and the South Carolina Stingrays.
Rob loved music from a young age and many of his influences derive from artists like Dave Mathews, The Eagles and to name a few. On his 23rd birthday he received a guitar, and from the minute he picked it up he was hooked on learning how to play. While in his senior year at Maine he worked on learning chords during his down time away from school and hockey. Rob’s friends and teammates encouraged him to sing songs and would put in requests to learn new covers. After college, he went on to play professional hockey and spent most of his free-time perfecting his new craft.
