I'm Rob. I write songs and sing them. I also play guitar and piano. You might call me a singer-songwriter, but I wouldn't because that word bums me out. Some guy's internet blog recently said you should "catch Rob before he's popular again," and another guy on YouTube said, "this shit is gay.”
I'm 29 years old, 6 feet 2 inches, and 155lbs.
here's what some other people said about me:
"When a large chunk of today's charts are made up of joyless minimal covers of former dancefloor bangers, it can sometimes feel like pop music has lost its vibrancy. But then something comes around, like a ray of sunshine through a dense canopy of trash, to remind you that music is actually alright." - noisey/VICE
"...SOME GREAT MUSIC IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN HE OPENS HIS MOUTH. THIS TIME OUT, IT'S JUST A LI'L MORE OUT, A LI'L MORE SCISSOR SISTERS, ROBIN THICKE, MARK RONSON/BRUNO MARS, EVEN ELTON JOHN." - Austin chronicle
"A MASTER OF CHEEKY SONGWRITING, DANCEABLE BASS LINES, PERCUSSIVE GUITAR RIFFS AND STICK IN YOUR HEAD MELODIES." - ELMORE MAGAZINE
"Incisive horn stabs and gritty, funk-inflected guitars abound, and there’s far more R&B, soul, and gospel influence here than precious folky textures. The arrangements are anchored by skillful—not-too-slick—production and Townsend’s exuberant vocals, which are at turns brash and sultry, with more than a little kitsch and wink-and-nod innuendo. It’s clever, catchy stuff." - Fugitive Sounds
"...this solo outing is a decidedly pop effort. It’s got us bouncing around just like our favorite Saint Motel tunes. Give “Feel That Way” a first listen...You’re gonna love it." - All Things Go
