Biography

 

Although his musical talents make it easy to believe he’s always been a full-time musician, Rob Drabkin studied biochemistry with the intention of becoming a doctor. His focus quickly changed after a trip to New York City where he quickly dropped science and dedicated himself to becoming a singer. On Rob’s upcoming album, Two Left Feet, he says, "It’s about joy, lots of damn joy! The title makes me laugh and that’s exactly the point. It’s an album about being unapologetically yourself and embracing your flaws. It’s about finding movement, beauty, activism, and love. It’s about releasing your inhibitions as you come home to yourself.”

 

Recent highlights for Rob include becoming the #1 Shazam'd artist in Greece following a placement of his song "It's a Beautiful Day" in a nation-wide commercial. "It's a Beautiful Day" was also featured on Perez Hilton, Sirius XM and Spotify's New Music Friday.  Rob recently toured to Rwanda and Uganda playing to crowds up to 26,000 in the iKnow Concert Series and Tour Du Rwanda. In the United States, Rob consistently sells out his headlining performances and has toured with artists such as The Head and The Heart, Michael Franti, Trevor Hall, Big Head Todd, and G-Love and Special Sauce. 

 

To sum up his vision, Rob says, “We too often forget that love is ever-present. We share it with each other through laughter, smiles, and sympathy. We can find it in everything and we can also create it in the smallest, most unassuming moments of our lives. All we can do is keep being kind and have the courage to choose love in every decision we make.”
