"Music brought me to Los Angeles." Robert moved his way west, from Bay City Michigan in the late 80's. His musical journey started by playing weekly with local acts. Venues such as The Whiskey A Go Go and The Roxy Theatre were among his favorites. He has performed with some of L.A.'s finest, including guitarist Nalle Colt (Vintage Trouble). The next step was songwriting. He began recording his music, with guidance from guitarist/producer Jon Butcher (Barefoot Servants).
