From their base in the Welsh Valleys, Rob and his band first burst onto the music scene in early 2013 with the release of a debut album, ‘Let it Go’, mixed and co-produced by Richard Thompson’s Grammy-nominated producer Simon Tassano.
 
The line-up is an eclectic gathering of instrumentalists including Van Morrison bassist Pete Hurley, African rhythm student Liz Mullins and country guitarist Brett Green.
 
The success of that debut album led to major festival appearances and touring in both the UK and Europe.
 
2016 sees the release of their follow-up album ‘Motorcycle Heart’ , once again co-produced in Texas by Tassano. The album blends all the skills and influences of Rob’s band to deliver 12 tracks that bridge Americana, Folk, Country and even a dash of radio-friendly pop.
