Before releasing any material, Rob spent a number of years opening shows for legendary Irish rock band Aslan, doing very little headlining shows in the process. It wasn't until 2008 that his debut LP Throwing It All Away was released on his own Cocklebob Recordings label which featured three singles all of which made the top 10 in the Irish Downloads Chart. His second studio album was released in August 2010 titled The Juliana Field. In June 2011, Live in New York & Dublin was his third release as a download-only EP. He is writing a third album to be titled The Good.
His music is heavily influenced by The Stone Roses, Paul Weller and Mic Christopher. An avid football fan and keen supporter of Bohemian F.C., FC Barcelona and Boca Juniors, he also writes a popular football blog for Hot Press magazine.
