Biography

Rob has previously played at many music venues, radio stations, on tv, and at music festivals; including 'In The City' (UK's international music showcasel), 'Get Loaded In The Park' and 'Summer Sundae' Festivals.

His earliest musical influences included Elvis Presley and the Beatles, later joined by Oasis, Paul Weller and Tim Burgess. Influences which have made their way into his own unique pop/rock sound. At 22 years old, this acoustic rock musician has cultivated a dedicated fan base almost entirely due to touring, reviews and the Internet. With reviewers rating his music and character highly, it is no wonder that each new song he writes is eagerly awaited; demonstrating his resonant vocals, and passionate lyrics.

Having written lyrics from an early age, Rob taught himself the guitar at the age of 17. He used this to then write songs to accompany the lyrics which had started to accumulate in a shoe box under the bed! Rob’s independent success has been the result of relentless live performances, the Internet, and word of mouth. Recent reviews have proven that all the work is paying off.

Lyrics

Footsteps in the North

Written By: Rob McCulloch

Got out the back of an Aston taxi,
Wishing the week was ending.
Stopped the clock for someone passing asking,
We’re only five minutes to Monday.
New breed in the city surrounding,
I caught myself quizzed where you’d be.
I exaggerate the passion second hand,
But at the time it was you I obsessed with.

Singing
Of all the things I saw, you gave me more.
In the glamour of your footsteps caught in the north.
Of all the things I saw you gave me more,
In the glamour of your footsteps caught in the north.

Got no space for entertaining,
My head’s ram jammed with obtaining.
A way of planned romance in my answers,
But one that you can walk away with.
Truth told I talk I don’t unfold
I can’t say but I try to portray it.
But all my thoughts revolve around the source,
I love you I’ve got that to work with.

Singing
Of all the things I saw you gave me more,
In the glamour of your footsteps caught in the north.
Of all the things I saw you gave me more,
In the glamour of your footsteps caught in the north.

Of all the things I saw you gave me more,
In the glamour of your footsteps caught in the north.
Of all the things I saw you gave me more,
In the glamour of your footsteps caught in the north.
