Artist Bio

Influences:   A bit of everything.

Love Out Loud vol.1 is being put together ready for release on 1st May 2018.

https://robcmusic.bandcamp.com/album/...

Available on pre-order now and includes the opening track "Love Cannot Be Taken" right away.

This is the result of my "Love" themed titles challenge this FAWM. Not all the songs made it onto the tracklist, but there are also one or two from a few years ago that did.

    Thanks for your comment on "Am I the Right Guy". It came together pretty quickly and was a fun track to record. I was on the road and recorded the guitar and mouth harp with Apogee One's built in condenser mic, then added amp and effects modelling. I think it worked out well. Cheers.

  • @oddbod  Mar 12

    Hey Rob, cheers for your advice on the Mastering thread. I really respect the quality sound and production values of your music - you clearly have buckets of experience and know exactly what you're doing so it's good to hear your thoughts on this. Regards

  • @musicsongwriter Mar 8

    Thank you so much Rob for your wonderful comment on my collaboration with Neil on birthday song.

    Thank you for your kind words on "Damaged", I love working with @crisp1's lyrics.

  • @spunky4455 Mar 4

    Thanks for the feedback on my music. I think you're such a solid producer. Been working on raising my mixing and mastering skills and there's still a way to go, but your encouragement means a lot. Hope you had a productive month!

  • @jibbidy34  Mar 4

    Hey Rob - thanks for listening to several of my songs and for your generous comments. Glad one of mine earned you the your Dupletarion badge! 😁

  • @jibbidy34  Mar 4


    Oh my goodness Dupletarion Warrior you are AWESOME!! You took the time to write 200 comments and listen to all those songs! Thanks for your hefty contribution to our community. You have 200 thank you’s from your fellow FAWMers and from me! Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!

  • @fonte  Mar 2

    Thanks so much for all your thoughtful comments and support! Yes, I'm currently snowed in in the UK, stacking up on provisions for the long winter ahead... Would be great to keep in touch and maybe who knows some kind of collaboration if we're both back for another year! By the way I think you've written my favourite ever album (*that was written entirely in the month of February). Great work and keep it funky.

  • @ladycarolynhyde Mar 2

    Your music needs to be on the radio. You have such a great ear for a tune and a groove. Congrats on finishing a great collection of songs. These are fab, and I'll be listening for a long time to come.

  • @kalinasilverman Feb 28

    Thank you Thank you!! Posting to 14 (unfinished songs) right now haha. Congrats on finishing!

  • @cts  Feb 28

    We did! We make a great team and I am very humbled that you were gracious to share your gifts and talents with me.

  • @cts  Feb 28

    Congrats on the win, my man! You did it!!

  • @tamsnumber4 Feb 27

    Congrats on your trophy!

  • @deena  Feb 27

    You did it! Congratulations!!! I will stop back and listen!

  • @fonte  Feb 27

    Dude thanks again for listening and your thoughtful comments. I'm eagerly awaiting number 14 from you πŸ˜‰

  • @thefuneralcrasher  Feb 27

    Thanks for all your support and encouragement...you’ve been a big help! Good luck on the last lap.

  • @cts  Feb 26

    Dude...I have no words. None. Except the ones I just typed...

  • @cts  Feb 25

    Thanks for the comment on RR. There really should be so much more going on in there, but time just isn't being amenable right now. I'm probably gonna add the chorus after the kick-pants guitar solo of yours and then go into the second break down. By the way, did you want me to just do the harmonies similar to the one line or do you want harmonies over those sections?

  • @cts  Feb 24

    Alright, Chief, stems have been loaded and said folder. There's a break at the end of the bridge. You'll know it when you hear it. Just let me know if there's anything else you need from me.

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 24

    Thank you for listening to so many of my songs and for your words of encouragement...Rob, your songs this year are very very very good... There are some real epics there...keep going mate. You are my biggest inspiration to keep experimenting with songwriting!! You got me into this in the first place!

  • @cts  Feb 23

    The Linn drum stuff is separate. You had asked about the sound a few times so I’m gonna hook you up. I can add something after you’re done if u think it needs it.

  • @cts  Feb 23

    Alright, Mr. Man, check thou Dropbox folder.

  • @cts  Feb 22

    You can expect some Linn Drum goodness before it's all over, man. Just saying....

  • @rustyp  Feb 22

    Hey Rob, I will email you. But. have you considered doing the Album Production Challenge after FAWM? Go check out the forum post and if you are interested , sign up on the facebook group. Would love to see you and hear you there.

  • @cts  Feb 22

    Why thank you, my good man! You certainly are part of the reason the jelly keeps rolling out of the factory! Thanks so much!

  • @ladycarolynhyde Feb 22

    Hey dude thanks for the feedback on 'alla this sound!' Keep rockin, and I'll be sure to get to more of your tunes soon!

  • @fonte  Feb 21

    Thank you for listening to 'fruit' and your kind comment that meant a lot! I'm relatively new to synths so am having some fun!

  • @deena  Feb 21

    I love getting comments from you! <3

    Track is bangin! Did you see my email about Red Rider?

  • @leepat  Feb 20

    Rob, you just made my day! Big thanks! Never, for the life of me, would I have pictured those words in Mick's mouth. But I have to admit - it IS ROUND πŸ˜€ Thanks for taking the time - you rock!

  • @ryako  Feb 20

    Hey, thanks for your comments! That was super nice of you!

  • @fonte  Feb 19

    Dude. I just read your Feb 14th update after I listened to Everybody loves you when you're dancing and you HAVE TO KEEP GOING. I need more choons! Yeah, that's right, I'm using caps lock. Situation demands it πŸ˜‰

  • @rustyp  Feb 19

    Hey Rob,
    I really enjoy listening to your stuff. It's inspiring.

    This may sound like a STUPID question, but as someone who considers myself a newby in many ways, I wanta learn more, so I'm just gonna ask. Could you possibly give a short rundown of your production work flow?
    What DAW are you using? Where do you start when you've got an idea. What instruments are you playing? Is most of your production right in the box?
    Do you have a day job, producing music, or do you do this stuff after work in the crevaces betwen dinner and family? πŸ˜€ I hope that's not offensive? πŸ˜€
    Thanks!

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 17


    Congratulations Centurion Soldier! You wrote 100 comments for your fellow FAWMers!! You made this place even better. You took your time to listen to other people's songs and you have 100 thank you's from all of them and from me! Here’s your badge. Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!

  • @stuartbenbow  Feb 15

    Hi, thanks so much for giving In The Park a listen. Glad you liked it, and ooh, an electrified version could be cool too, thanks.

  • @garlajoie Feb 14

    Hello Rob! Didn't even realize I was listening to one of your works when I heard When We Love. That explains the killer production. Hope you're enjoying the best month of the year. - Garrett

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 14

    It's growing on me now. πŸ˜€

  • @jenjen Feb 13

    Thanks for saying hi! This is super fun! I had a crazy busy weekend working but now have time to get back to the magic!! Cheers

  • @leepat  Feb 10

    OK cool, no stress. Get well soon!

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 9

    Thanks for your comments on 'Forbidden Places' and 'X Marks The Spot'...As you know I enjoy humorous songs and I am having fun with the looping software on my phone...I may explore that more as a way to get ideas down...but need to be mindful not to sound too repetitive...

  • @leepat  Feb 9

    Hi again,
    just got a love-lyric down. not exactly rock, but if you like it...

  • @dragondreams  Feb 9

    Hi Rob! 😊
    Thank you the listens and the lovely comments. 😊
    My guitar synth is an ancient Roland GR-20 with a GK3 hex pickup bolted to my Schecter. Its onboard sounds are great, and I also hook it to my PC through MIDI and use it to drive soft synths and soundfonts in Reaper.
    I swapped a couple of guitars to get the synth about ten years ago. I bought a new 13 pin connector lead for it last week though, so that could explain why I've blown the dust off it so much these last few days. πŸ˜‚

  • @cts  Feb 9

    Hey! I got and I’ll get to work on it!

  • @fonte  Feb 8

    Hey! Thank you so much for you kind word on 'Stay'. That means a lot from someone as talented as you! I do intend to do more this month, I really do....

  • @valeriecox  Feb 8

    Hey there! Thanks for the comment on my collab with Liz.

  • @caterwauler Feb 8

    Hi completely forgot to post on your soundboard after commenting the other day. Please forgive my lack of manners.
    Glad to see you back too, and thanks a lot for your comments. It's always a pleasure to read them.
    I'll be back to listen.

  • @kalinasilverman Feb 8

    Hi! Thanks for your in depth and insightful comment about the lyrics and your own life. Old souls unite 😁

  • @deena  Feb 7

    Hi Rob! Thanks for great comments! I was going to explain, but I see @kristian got here first! He is kind enough not to mind if I move his musical parts around. πŸ˜€ The words and the melody were inspired by the music. I listened and listened and the song emerged.

  • @kristian  Feb 7

    Hi! Thanks for the wonderful comments πŸ˜€ It started with a basic music track with quite a different structure then what it ended up with... I sent @deena a basic verse - pre-chorus - chorus structure, then she went to town with her axe on it πŸ˜€ She made the chorus the verse, didn't use the pre-chorus at all and the verse as the chorus... so it's basically all her fault πŸ˜€

  • @popmythology  Feb 7

    Hi, Rob! Always good to hear from you. Thank you so much for stopping by my page and saying hello!! Happy FAWMing!

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 7

    Thank you for your comments on 'Celestial Promises' Rob...I am a bit limited on time and have been using my phone to help with ideas and creating songs whilst 'in transit', so to speak...You are on fire with your work!!

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 6

    Thanks a lot for the nice comment on my track! Glad you liked it!

  • @leepat  Feb 6

    Hi Rob, thanks for the message. I do hope to find the time.. But if not, perhaps I can cook a lyric for you? With love in the title and all πŸ˜‰

  • @crisp1  Feb 6
