I'm a soloist and can work in an acoustic trio. The range of music styles goes from pop, jazz, bossa, ambient, Delta blues. So you could hear a low-down blues to a Norah Jones song. I have a high tenor voice. I can make the evening low key, or a big-hearted energy set. Please let me know if you need a song for an event. Please let me know the appropriate attire.

We also go out as a duo and trio called Sharp Marbles, Bossas, Jazz, Pop, improv

Rob graduated from Berklee College in 1997. He focused on jazz arranging, the music of Brazil and lyric writing. I have also studied voice (8 years) with Joanne Messier (Boston Conservatory). Studied with Rich Falco and Toshi Iseda before Berklee.
