After releasing three albums with his band, Terramara, Rob takes a hiatus to present his first solo album, entitled Ferris Wheels Unbound. Rob’s new release departs from the rock quartet production of past albums, and instead presents a more subdued collection of intimate performances and organic arrangements. The mostly piano and acoustic guitar-based tunes are enhanced occasionally by the Laurels String Quartet and jazz-trio. Producer Andy Thompson (Jeremy Messersmith, Natalie Lovejoy, Kevin Steinman) adds an art-pop sheen to the tracks while maintaining their homegrown, folksy style.
Rob formed Terramara in 1998 as a vehicle for his groove-based, jazz-influenced, piano-driven songs. Over the course of the past fifteen years, Terramara has released three full-length albums, garnering a loyal following among smart-pop and jazz-rock lovers around the world.
